The new partnership will see Macron, a European leader in the production of active sportswear, supply the club’s senior and academy squads with all their technical, training, leisure and travel wear requirements, in addition to all of the club’s retail and merchandising needs.
Bristol Rovers FC Chairman Mr. Steve Hamer stated, "We are very pleased and excited to be associated with Macron who are widely recognised as one of the leading manufacturers of sporting apparel and look forward to developing a strong partnership with them over the course of the next five years.”
Hamer went on to say, “We felt that we needed a new brand to take us forward into an exciting new era for our club and are confident that Macron will enable us to do that by providing a wide range of bespoke and cutting edge designs. We are grateful to Errea for their hard work on behalf of the club over the years and wish the company every success for the future.”
Mr. Hamer concluded by stating, “We are sure that all Bristol Rovers supporters will be pleased with the new home and away kits produced by Macron, as well as the new range of leisurewear that will be available in the club shop in the very near future.”
Macron has long wished to be linked to one of the 'historic' names of English Football and concluded their agreement with the club prior to the thrilling end of season, which saw Bristol Rovers promoted to League One after finishing third with a very impressive 85 points in League Two.
“We are very proud of this important agreement,” commented Gianluca Pavanello, CEO of Macron. “This new partnership consolidates Macron’s brand as a major player in the English market, which already includes prestigious clubs, such as Crystal Palace and Stoke City as well as the Macron Stadium and Bolton Wanderers.
"We are sure that the new partnership will provide both 'The Pirates' and Macron with countless future successes.”
The new kit for next season will be revealed over the coming few weeks and we are counting down the days as to when it will be available in our club shop.
