Bolton Wanderers and Macron have agreed a landmark partnership extension that will see the sportswear brand continue as the Club’s Official Technical Kit Partner to the end of the 2030/31 season.
Long-time partners of Bolton Wanderers, the Italian sportswear brand initially forged a relationship with the Whites in 2014, becoming not only the Club’s kit manufacturers but also acquiring the stadium naming rights for what would become the Macron Stadium from 2014 – 2018.
Founded in Bologna in 1971, Macron is a leader in the production of sportswear apparel and now supplies bespoke Italian-designed kits to sports teams across the world. With a presence in the world of football, rugby and cricket, partner clubs alongside Bolton Wanderers include Real Sociedad, Bologna FC, Udinese Calcio, UC Sampdoria, FC Nantes, Crystal Palace, Stoke and UEFA’s referees.
Following the signing of this historic deal in recent weeks, the renewed partnership will see Macron continue to manufacturer Wanderers’ home, away and third kits as well as provide training wear for the first team and Club staff. The team will also deliver a new branded leisurewear range to Wanderers supporters from next season.
In addition, Macron will work with in-house Club staff to modernise and refurbish Wanderers’ retail store, on site at the Toughsheet Community Stadium, with the aim of providing an interactive and exciting shopping experience to supporters.
