JD Sports Fashion plc

Revised date of General Meeting

On 28(th) October 2021, JD Sports Fashion plc (the "Company") announced that the general meeting of the Company (the "General Meeting") due to be held later that day in connection with a proposed share sub-division (the "Share Sub-Division") had been postponed.

Revised date

The Company announces that the General Meeting will be held at Edinburgh House, Hollinsbrook Way, Pilsworth, Bury, Lancashire BL9 8RR on 26(th) November 2021 at 1.00 p.m. In this announcement, the General Meeting to be held at that place, date and time is referred to as the "26 November General Meeting".

Status of Circular

The explanatory circular that describes the proposed Share Sub-Division was posted to shareholders on 5(th) October 2021 (the "Circular"). Save as is mentioned in this announcement, the information in the Circular remains correct and the Circular continues to be available to view on the Company's website, www.jdplc.com . The notes to the notice of general meeting contained in the Circular will apply to the 26 November General Meeting, subject only to amendment of the times and dates referred to in those notes in accordance with the revised timetable of events mentioned below.

Eligibility to vote at the General Meeting

Eligibility to vote at the 26 November General Meeting will be determined by reference to the Company's register of members as at 6.30pm on 24 November 2021 (the "Voting Record Time"). Only members registered in the register of members of the Company as at the Voting Record Time or, in the event that the meeting is adjourned, in the register of members as at 6.30pm on the day that is two business days prior to the date of any adjourned meeting shall be entitled to attend or vote at the 26 November General Meeting in respect of the number of shares registered in their name at that time. Changes to entries in the register of members after the Voting Record Time or, in the event that the 26 November General Meeting is adjourned, after 6.30pm on the day that is two business days prior to the date of the adjourned meeting shall be disregarded in determining the rights of any person to attend or vote (and the number of votes they may cast) at the 26 November General Meeting.

Voting by proxy

Any shareholder wishing to vote at the 26 November General Meeting without attending in person must appoint a proxy to do so. A new proxy form for use at the 26 November General Meeting is available for download at the Company's website, www.jdplc.com. CREST members may also appoint a proxy via the CREST electronic appointment service described in the CREST Manual and the notes to the notice of general meeting contained in the Circular.

Shareholders who submitted proxy votes for the postponed General Meeting

A proxy which was validly received for the postponed General Meeting from a shareholder who remains a shareholder at the Voting Record Time will be treated as the appointment by that shareholder of a proxy to vote at the 26 November General Meeting per their original instruction contained in that original proxy, but exercising, pursuant to that instruction, the votes attached to the number of shares held by that shareholder as at the Voting Record Time (whether that number is greater than, fewer than or the same as the number of shares held by them as at the voting record time for the postponed General Meeting).

Notwithstanding the above, any such shareholder can, if they wish, instead submit a new proxy for the 26 November General Meeting by the Voting Record Time, in which case any proxy submitted by them for the postponed General Meeting will be void and disregarded. In order to do so, they should follow the procedures outlined in this announcement and in the notes to the notice of general meeting contained in the Circular.

A proxy received for the postponed General Meeting from a shareholder who no longer holds any shares as at the Voting Record Time will not be valid for the 26 November General Meeting and will be disregarded.

Shareholders who held no shares as at the voting record time for the postponed General Meeting

Any shareholder who held no shares as at the voting record time for the postponed General Meeting and wishes to vote by proxy at the 26 November General Meeting should submit a proxy in accordance with the procedures outlined in this announcement and in the notes to the notice of general meeting contained in the Circular.

Queries regarding proxy voting

Any queries regarding voting by proxy at the 26 November General Meeting can be raised by contacting the Company's registrar, Equiniti, on 0371 384 2917 from within the UK or +44 371 384 2917 if calling from outside the UK (these lines are open between 8:30am and 5:30pm UK time Monday to Friday excluding public holidays in England and Wales).

Ordinary resolution to be proposed at the General Meeting

The ordinary resolution approving the Share Sub-Division which will be proposed at the General 26 November Meeting is unchanged, save for the date referred to in it. Accordingly, that resolution now reads as follows:

That each ordinary share of 0.25 pence in the capital of the Company be and is hereby sub-divided into five ordinary shares of 0.05 pence each, such shares having the rights and being subject to the restrictions set out in the articles of association of the Company for the time being, provided that this resolution is conditional upon, and shall take effect on, admission to the Official List of the FCA and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities of the new ordinary shares arising from such sub-division by 8.00am on 30 November 2021 (or such other time and/or date as the board of directors of the Company may, in its absolute discretion, determine).
