McDermott Advises SIGNA Retail on Sale of SportScheck to Frasers


Munich, October 19, 2023 – McDermott Will & Emery has advised SIGNA Retail group on the sale of the German sports retailer SportScheck to Frasers Group plc after a competitive auction process.

The closing of the transaction is subject to the approval of the competent antitrust authorities and is expected for the first quarter of 2024. The acquisition will enable Frasers to grow its presence in Germany, one of the biggest sports markets in Europe.

Mosleh, Tjark Pogoda, Lea Hauser and Max Küttner.
