New sports playgrounds in North Edsa and Pasay

With a long-term partnership with SM Supermalls, DECATHLON ventured into the areas
of North Edsa and Pasay to build and enter the sporting community. “We want to be

playing sports.” shared Cea.

Sustainable playing

“We want more people to practice sports to be a better version of themselves.” says
Cea “Filipinos deserve more success stories thanks to sports. Sustainability is a key to
accessibility for us. Our customers will have access to Eco-designed sports products,
items that are produced with lesser negative environmental impact, and Second Life
