The ‘Home of Sport’ concept fuses Adidas' expertise in sports with local community groups, forming a community hub with engaging fitness sessions that will showcase how sport can "empower daily life."

To celebrate the launch, Adidas will be hosting a series of immersive programmes and events for the public across the weekend at the newly restored Battersea Power Station. The ‘Adidas Empower Station’ pop-up will provide local consumers and fitness fanatics with the opportunity to attend and take part in a range of engaging events and activities.
