The contract signed by both entities qualifies Deporvillage as an official retailer of licensed products, which will start being sold from next July, the products under official Tour de France license are manufactured by brands such as Le Coq Sportif, Look, Elite, Oakley and Selle Italia, all of them are regular suppliers of the Spanish platform.

Starting in Nice on 29th August and finishing on 20th September, the 107th edition of the Tour will have 21 stages and 22 teams, covering 3,470 km. Initially scheduled for the end of June, the organisers postponed the event due to COVID-19.
