The brand was founded in 1919 by the Feinbloom brothers. Champion soon signed an agreement with the Michigan Wolverines to produce uniforms for their teams. In the 1930s the brand was renamed as "Champion Knitting Mills Inc.", producing sweatshirts. Shortly thereafter, Champion products would be adopted by the US Military Academy for use during training exercises and physical education classes. Champion produced uniforms for all NBA teams in the '90s and some NFL teams in the' 80s and '90s. He also produced sportswear for many major colleges as well as being the kit producer for the Olympic basketball team who participated in the 1992 Summer Olympics.

Girls of all ages usually wore oversized Champion sweatshirts on leggings with soft socks and sneakers and we still find it in the streetstyle scene today.
