HistoryEdit

Amart Sports was founded in 1976 with the first store located in Underwood, Queensland.[2] Since then Amart Sports expanded throughout Australia to over 60 stores - mainly in homemaker destination centres across Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales and Western Australia.[3]

Super Retail Group, who also operates Rebel Sport, acquired the Amart Sports business in November 2011.

On 24 July 2017, Super Retail Group made the announcement that all Amart Sports stores will be rebranded to Rebel stores by 31 October 2017, expanding the Rebel brand's national footprint to almost 160 stores in Australia. The Amart Sports brand was officially discontinued as of 1 November 2017.[4]
