English Championship football club Bolton Wanderers have announced a new partnership with the Italian sportswear manufacturer Macron.

Commencing in the 2014-15 season, the new four year deal will see the brand provide Bolton with "unique" and "bespoke" official match and replica kit, training wear and leisurewear, replacing adidas.

The German manufacturer had taken over from Reebok in recent seasons, in the wake of the latter being bought out in 2005, though Bolton's ground continued to be known as the Reebok Stadium. Now, as well as the technical sponsorship, the stadium naming rights will be transferred to Macron.

The club's chairman Phil Gartside expressed his admiration for Macron's "passion for football and their ideas to grow our partnership" whilst also thanking the adidas Group for "their continued support over the years."

Bolton will always be a Reebok club for me. Macron is a big step down in quality from Adidas.

That's the worrying thing though. When you're £150m in debt, you'd be silly not to take up these deals. Hopefully it's meant them paying much less for kitwear and trainingwear.

I agree though, in their short time here, Adidas put out some fantastic strips.

I'm excited to see what Macron produces for Bolton, hopefully it'll be a more personal design than the team wear Adidas handed out to anyone but Bayern Munich and Chelsea, if the stadium name change brings in the pennies then go for it, it will always be The Reebok.

Bolton always had nice kits throughout the years. Unfortunately that's all about to change.

As I already wrote elsewhere, there go the other brands all "bespoke" in the wake of Umbro... As usual. (especially Italian brands, since also Errea has always looked closely to Umbro' sproduction)

Hate to see the mighty Adidas go away. The strips and training kit were things of beAuty. Oh well saves me £200 next year.

Don't flatter yourself. I wouldn't think of rangers as being "established."

Of course I am serious! Reebok have made some lovely kits throughout the years for BWFC, as did Adidas over the last few seasons. As a Millwall fan I can categorically state that Macron are by far the worst kit maker in football today. The material that they use is cheap and their designs are awful (not to mention that plaster their ugly logo everywhere!)
