“Where Sport Lives” (Champs Sports)
Champs Sports and Foot Locker are both owned by what used to be Woolworth. When Woolworth ended its operations, Champs Sports and Foot Locker came into many of the old Woolworth stores in the early 1990s.

"Where Sport Lives" is the Champs Sports slogan.

13 December 1992, New York Times, "Chain by Chain, Woolworth Reinvents Itself" by Isadore Barmash, pg. F5:
Woolworth said last month that its most profitable chains were Northern Reflections, Champs Sports, Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker and Afterthought.

28 August 2003, New York Times, Advertising by Stuart Elliott, pg. C4:
That interest in sports and music is also evident in the campaign for Champs Sports, which introduces an imaginary town named Sportsville, "where sport lives."
