INTERSPORT is the biggest medium-sized mail order business group in worldwide sports retail. Under, 5800 locations in 65 countries are united under the umbrella of the IIC-Intersport International Corporation GmbH, the purchasing and management corporation of the Intersport group. In 2014 they generated a turnover of EUR 10,5 billion. With market shares of around 36% in Germany and over 20% in Europe the IIC GmbH is the world leader in sports retail.
On 1 October 2018 it was already reported that INTERSPORT Germany has forbidden the use of the INTERSPORT company logo.
Confessing “Lyoneses” therefore accused me of being a liar and sent me INTERSPORT logos of different countries that were used on Cashback World websites as an ostensible proof. Thereupon I asked the INTERSPORT headquarters once again.
The INTERSPORT headquarters answered on 25 March 2019:
“Dear Mr. Ecker,
thank you for your message, please excuse my late reply. As we already told you last year INTERSPORT Germany has encouraged Lyoness Europe AG to take our logo off their website immediately. To our knowledge this has happened. In the meantime, they were prompted to do so with all logos of the national companies within our group.
We therefore like to emphasise once again that there is no cooperation with Lyoness and there is no contractual relationship with Lyoness Europe AG.
Time and again, it has shown, that several affiliates obviously are on the Lyoness management board’s pay roll. Also, the continuos denials of renowned companies are illustrating clearly, how low the revenue at Lyoness (Cashback World) must be.
If these enormous turnovers actually existed, large high-revenue companies would certainly be willing to be listed at myWorld/Lyoness (Cashback World).
