Welcome to the World of Sports
Join thousands of others from around the world who have come to adidas global headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany for the professional and personal opportunity of a lifetime. If you’re excited to have a game-changing career, we’re excited to welcome you to our world of sports.
Where we work
Take a large bowl. Mix top fashion designers from around the world, athletes fresh from the turf, a history of grounded sportswear, a dash of 3-Stripes and a pinch of wonder. Et voila! This is where the dream of our founder Adi Dassler lives on through the passion and pride of over 3800 employees. You see it and feel it every day at our headquarters here in our original home town, Herzogenaurach.
World of Sports
Located on a 346 acre site, the main adidas headquarters, the World of Sports (WOS) is often compared to a university campus. Besides offices, this is home to playing fields, the adidas Brand Centre, an award-winning cafeteria “Stripes” facing an artificial lake and an entirely new state-of-the art “Laces” building.
Employees have the unique opportunity to come face to face with their sporting idols. Lionel Messi, David Beckham, Dwight Howard and the New Zealand All-Blacks rugby team have all been guests at WOS.
Germany offers an extensive amount of instructional or just plain fun opportunities for kids. Sports, amusement parks, plus kilometers of hiking and biking trails mean there’s no reason to ever be bored!
Germany has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe and is overall an especially safe country for children.
Through sport, we have the power to change lives
It’s no wonder that Germany is home of one of the largest sporting brands in the world. People here don’t just watch sport, they live it. The mentality here is to “be active” and it’s infectious.
With 70,000 kilometers of cycling routes, a Reebok Crossfit Box, running paths along the river Pegnitz, infinite forest trails and rock climbing in Fränkische Schweiz (Little Switzerland), it’s easy to stay fit right from your front door.
