Adidas has avoided a fine from the Spain’s National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC) in exchange for voluntary changes to its franchising policy. The commission opened an inquiry after a franchisee in Spain accused the company of anti-competitive practices in November 2018. In essence, Adidas had different contracts in force simultaneously with different franchisees. The contracts contained various anti-competitive terms to restrict online sales, online advertising or cross-selling as well as, in some cases, post-contractual non-compete clauses. Adidas has now pledged to cancel the non-compete clauses, clarify its rules on the URLs that distributors may use, and permit cross-selling between distributors in general and franchises in particular.
