June 22 – Italian teamwear specialist Macron is returning to Premier League Crystal Palace from the start of next season as the club’s kit partner.
Macron, who were previously with the club from 2014-18, will replace Puma in what is described as a long term deal.
The agreement covers the supply of all team match day kits as well as a wide range of training wear, travel garments and accessories.
Crystal Palace commercial director Barry Webber said: “Macron is an ambitious sports brand known for its innovation in materials as well as its style, and having formed an excellent working relationship with them in the past, we are pleased to be collaborating on Crystal Palace kits once again.
That collaboration includes changing the club crest to feature 1861, the year that the original football team was set up by cricketers from the Crystal Palace Club, replacing 1905 on the badge, the year when the professional Club was founded.
Macron has been voted the third largest technical brand in football within the UEFA rankings for the last four consecutive years.
Macron Senior Sports Marketing Manager Ross Cook, said: “We have already started working hand in hand with the club to develop unique and exclusive collections created for their elite athletes as well as an extended apparel range for fans, all of which are driven by technical innovation, stylistic research, attention to detail and Italian flair alongside adapting to the club’s history and traditions.”
