National Sporting Goods Association

founded in 1927
Downers Grove, Illinois

In 1927, the association’s founders fought an unfair taxation on sporting goods in the state of South Carolina. This fight led to the formation of the Sporting Goods Dealer’s Association of South Carolina.

Soon after, other regional sporting goods associations began to form in the East, Midwest and the South. Finally, these associations merged into one and in 1936, the name was officially changed to National Sporting Goods Association.
