Fila has enjoyed a special relationship with remarkable athletes, pioneers marked as much by indomitable passion as incomparable performance. Beginning with our debut on the courts with tennis greats Adriano Panatta, Paola Bertolucci and the incomparable Bjorn Borg, we have had the fortune of helping extraordinary individuals accomplish some of history’s most iconic sports achievements. We followed Borg as he ascended to the pinnacle of sports history, the F-Box logo proudly displayed on his signature polo and headband, winning five consecutive victories at Wimbledon and firmly establishing his legacy as tennis’ most dominant and unique player, both in terms of technique and style. In 1986, when Reinhold Messner reached the treacherous summit of Everest, fueled by the spirit of adventure and the determination to be the first to scale the titan without the aid of additional oxygen, he wore high-tech mountain gear designed by Fila. Thirsting for more, he proceeded to scale 13 peaks of the Himalayas, leaving his indelible mark on the history of mountaineering and raising Fila and iconic F-Box logo proudly to the highest peaks of the world. We slid down the slopes with Ingemar Stenmark in his pursuit of 86 World Cup titles. We graced the greens of British Opens and two Masters Titles with Tom Watson, skirted the frosty trails of Italy with Alberto Tomba and arched triumphant on the shoulders of Monica Seles and Guillermo Vilas. And we were there in 2009 when Svetlana Kuznetsoza won the French Open.
