Leeds United are delighted to announce a four-season kit deal with emerging Italian sportswear brand Macron. Macron are well-established on the continent across all sports and currently supply sports wear to many clubs in Europe.
Macron currently supply Swansea City, and their garments are highly technical in composition from top quality fabric. Macron supply thousands of clubs from all levels across Europe from their extensive range and while they have a supply chain through independent retailers in the UK, it's hoped the partnership with Leeds United will establish them in the UK high street.
Leeds United chief executive Shaun Harvey said: "This is an exciting partnership for the club and it will enable us to work with Macron as their flagship club in Europe.
"The decision to work with Macron in preference to other international brands, who were also interested in supplying kit to Leeds United, was easy when we learned that their long-term objectives for their brand complement our own objectives.
" The deal will see Macron supplying kits, training wear for the senior team, reserves team, and Academy. Gianluca Pavanello, Chief Executive Officer at Macron S.p.A. said:
"Macron are delighted to announce its new partnership with Leeds United, one of the greatest names in English football. We feel privileged that Macron will be associated with a club that has such a huge history and greatness.
"We feel we are joining Leeds at a time when the club is marching back towards where it belongs, in the Premiership. Leeds United will be the flagship of our activity in Europe and we will put all our resources into making sure we supply the club and its fans with the best products available.
"We would like to thank the chairman of Leeds United Mr Bates and chief executive Mr Harvey for the opportunity they have given Macron and would also like to thank Mike Farnan of RedStrike Marketing, our sponsorship agency, for helping negotiate this partnership."
