ABOUT BJÖRN BORG
The Björn Borg trademark was registered in the late 1980s and established in the Swedish fashion market in the first half of the 1990s. Since then operations have grown strongly, including through new product areas and geographical markets.
The brand increasingly stands on its own merits, distinct from Björn Borg the person, and a growing share of consumers associate the name with the brand’s products rather than Björn Borg himself. At the same time Björn Borg’s legacy as a tennis player and his celebrity status off the court still provide a strong platform for international expansion.
Today the brand has a distinctive identity and strong position in established markets in its dominant product area, underwear, while newer markets are in a start-up phase. In its business plan Björn Borg has an explicit goal to be a leader in sports fashion and has therefore decided to focus on design and production of sports apparel.
