Company History

 

Our history is one we take pride in, it has made us who we are today. The first Academy store opened as a tire shop in San Antonio in 1938. It turned into a military surplus store, then began offering sports and outdoors equipment as it evolved into the Academy Sports + Outdoors we know today. Presently, we have more than 250 stores in 16 states, supported by more than 23,000 team members throughout the South, Southeast, and Midwest.  update-11-19-2019
