Motherwell FC announced a new kit deal with Italian sportswear label Macron.
Motherwell will be Macron’s first and only professional club in Scottish football, joining a wide-ranging and impressive portfolio which currently includes the likes of Lazio, Napoli, Bologna, Sporting Clube de Portugal, AS Monaco, Aston Villa, Leeds Utd, Perth Glory, AZ Alkmaar, Real Betis and Mallorca.
Macron will supply the club with official match kit and training apparel for players and management staff from 2014/15.
Macron will also offer a full range of fashion and leisurewear that will be available from the ‘Well Shop.
Club retail manager Alan Provan added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Macron to supply kit to Motherwell players and supporters. We are very much looking forward to launching both the new playing kit and training wear.
