Champion is a supermarket chain that operates in France and is owned by the international retailer Carrefour. The second largest supermarket chain in France, its annual turnover is €12.2bn. There are over 1,000 stores and 60,000 employees. There are also Champion supermarkets in Belgium, Spain, Poland, Greece, Turkey and Argentina. The chain grew in 1999 by absorbing the Stock chain. In 2006, Carrefour closed most Brazilian Champion stores and rebranded the remainder to the Carrefour Bairro. Also, all Spanish and Turkish Champion supermarkets were rebranded as Carrefour Express in 2006; some of them became Maxi DIA

All Champion stores world-wide are currently in the process of being rebranded as Carrefour Market. [1]



Champion was the main sponsor of the polka dot jersey in the Tour de France from 1993 to 2008. From 2009, Carrefour took over the sponsorship.
