Le Coq Sportif is a French company producing sports equipment such as shoes, shorts, and T-shirts. It was founded in 1882 by mile Camuset, but the first clothing items branded with the rooster appeared in 1948. The company's name derives from the Gallic rooster, a national symbol of France. The company has sponsorship deals with several football clubs, most notably Everton F.C. In addition, the company also sponsors the Quick Step-Innergetic and Team Milram cycling teams. Le Coq Sportif also supplied kits to the Tottenham Hotspur team that won the FA Cup in 1981 and 1982, Aston Villa 1982 team that won the European Cup, Chelsea, Sunderland, and the Everton team of the mid 1980s; the FIFA World Cup winning teams of Italy in 1982 and Argentina in 1986. South Korean golfer Yang Yong-eun wore a Le Coq Sportif shirt on the last day of the PGA Championship in 2009, which he won.
