Retro Macron football shirts
Macron is today one of Italy’s leading sportswear brands and the company supply many football teams throughout Europe. Their rise in recent years has been impressive - perhaps their years of manufacturing apparel on behalf of several well known Italian and international companies is paying dividends. Originally formed in 1971 it wasn’t until 25 years later that they decided to release clothing under their own brand and developed a diligent approach to developing and producing quality sportswear for football, baseball, basketball and of course athletics amongst other sports.
Like their Italian compatriots Kappa, the company are never shy to promote their brand and all of their kits include a plethora of logo placements.
Macron have also made big in-roads into the rugby market and in January 2013 it was announced that Macron will be taking over from Canterbury as suppliers of the Scotland national rugby side - the biggest sponsorship deal in Scottish rugby history.
Their current roster in football is enviable with clubs in the UK including Aston Villa, West Ham, Leeds United, Millwall and Sheffield United. In their native Italy they supply Foggiam, Napoli and Lazio amongst many others. Although arguably there are no ‘huge’ clubs in their portfolio they do specialise in providing quality strips (both teamwear and bespoke) to many lower-league and semi-professional sides and, if their profile and reputation continues to grow it surely won’t be long before they’re providing kits for some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
