Hummel International Sport & Leisure A/S[1] is a Danish manufacturing company based in Aarhus. The company was founded in 1923 by Albert Messmer and his brother Michael Ludwig Messmer, with the name "Messmer & Co" in Hamburg, Germany. Hummel became Danish after being taken over by Bernhard Weckenbrock in 1956, who moved its base to Kevelaer, North Rhine-Westphalia. Since 1999, hummel has been a part of the Danish Thornico Group founded by Christian and Thor Stadil.[1]

Being one of the oldest sportswear brands in the business with roots in football & handball, hummel has previously been worn by big football teams like Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and the Denmark national team. Today, hummel continues to sponsor clubs and players within handball and football.

The company currently manufactures apparel for football, rugby league, futsal, handball, basketball, shinty and volleyball teams. Moreover, the company also offers apparel and footwear for children alongside its fashion subbrand, hummel HIVE.

The hummel logo is a stylized bumble bee, as hummel is German for bumble bee.
