The world-renowned French language daily sports newspaper was founded in 1946. It has built an unmatched reputation for outstanding written and photographic journalism.

The newspaper has its origins in the earlier publication L'Auto-Vélo. L’Equipe’s first editor was Jacques Goddet, one of the organisers of the Tour de France. As of 28 February 1946, the paper began as a three-times a week publication but since 1948 it has been a daily.
