Chicago, USA-based Wilson Sporting Goods Co., is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high performance sports equipment, apparel, and accessories. It was a subsidiary of the Finnish group Amer Sports between 1989 and 2019, having recently been acquired by the Chinese giant Anta Sports. Recognized by the equipments produced for sports such as Tennis, Golf or Baseball, the image of the North American brand is closely linked to the production of high performance balls for Basketball, Volleyball or American Football.
Founded in 1913 in New York, the company initially dedicated itself to the production of rackets, before dedicating to the creation of balls for various sports, including basketball. And in the early days of the NBA, in 1946, it was Wilson who produced the league's first official basketball, starting a partnership that would continue for 37 years. After an interruption of about three decades, Wilson reached an agreement with the most famous basketball league in the world and from the 2021/22 season it will be once again the official NBA game ball. It should be noted that Wilson is currently the provider of the Global Game Basketball of FIBA 3x3, the official Game Basketball of the NBL of Australia, the official Game Basketball of the NCAA, and the official Game Basketball of the Basketball Champions League in Europe.
The Company brings more than a century of innovation in basketball to every level of play. It uses player insights to develop products that push equipment innovation into new territories and empower athletes at every level to perform at their best.
THIS IS WILSON
EXISTS TO IGNITE THE TRUE POTENTIAL OF EVERY ATHLETE IN THE WORLD.
We are the original sports innovator. Our formula has been rigorously applied, and the work has been profound: hire the best thinkers and partner with the most innovative sporting minds from the grassroots level on up.
Find it, fix it, improve it, speed it up, make it lighter, make it easier. Make it better. Thatis what we have done for over a hundred years, and that is what will keep us going for a hundred more.
Whether you’re a future Hall of Famer, an amateur or strapping on the gear for the first time, there’s a powerful bond that exists between every athlete and the tools they use on the field, court or course: their equipment. And through it all — the wins, the losses, highs and lows, the celebrations and the irreconcilable differences—it’s this bond that endures throughout all of it.
Each piece of Wilson gear represents a promise. It is a promise of potential; a promise of an advantage, a powerful edge; a promise of hope that, against all odds, under the most trying circumstances, we are teammates who will be there for our athletes.
