The post coronavirus (COVID-19) company impact report analyses the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on JD Sports & its future prospects.

As per the publisher's forecasts, JD Sport’s revenue growth rate has been revised from 22.0% to -6.0% for 2020 - a US$0.4bn decline over the pre-COVID 2020 forecast for the group.

Though it had to close down its stores across Europe and US during the COVID-19 pandemic, its websites kept accepting and fulfilling orders across its various territories and thereby reduced the negative impact of the pandemic on its profits.
