History of Sport Chek

The history of Sport Chek can be traced back to 1974 when a single outlet named Forzani’s Locker Room was launched by four Calgary Stampeder football players. John Forzani, one of the Canadian Football League (CFL) players, was inspired to open an athletic shoe store.

 It was from his observation that Calgary does not have a single outlet for athletic shoes, where players were forced to buy a pair in the United States. He has invited his brothers – Joe and Tom, including Basil Bark (a teammate) to pool their money to start the business.

Forzani dedicated himself full-time to the retail business after retiring in the football season of 1977. After a year, the company reached CA$1 million and expanded its operation into seven store chains. It was in 1991 that Forzani incorporated The Forzani Group Ltd.

Forzani saw the need to close more acquisitions to be more profitable and completed the acquisition of Sport Chek International Ltd. in 1999. The company Sport Chek is considered to be the first Canadian retailer to venture into the sporting goods superstore. FGL Sports was bought by Canadian Tire in 2011 for reportedly $771 million, then proceeded with restructuring.
