The Scarlets have announced a new long-term kit sponsorship deal with Macron that the Llanelli-based region claim will “integrate Italian style with the grit of Welsh rugby”.
The five-year deal sees Macron take over from Kooga, and will ensure the Bologna-based firm kits out the Welsh region until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Macron already have a large presence in rugby in the UK – they’ve outfitted Scotland, Glasgow Warriors and Edinburgh for a while now, and last year added Northampton Saints to their rapidly growing stable.
Said Ross Cook, Sports Marketing Manager for Macron, “Our designers are thrilled to delve into the depth of the Scarlets’ vast rugby history and have worked tirelessly to make sure that the new collection is something for the players and fans to pull on with pride. Our goal in each collection is to encapsulate the style and feeling of the club while bringing some of our own Italian style to both the field and the terraces. We look forward to welcoming the Scarlets and all at Parc y Scarlets to the Macron family.”
Macron have produced some seriously stylish kits in the last few years – with proper collar no less – so we’re very excited to see what Macron and the Scarlets come up with next season!
