Macron will supply Reading’s new kit and training wear for next season.
The Championship side have announced the deal on their official club website today.
Reading’s kits are currently made by Puma but the Royals have now switched to Macron until 2022 at least.
The Italian brand make kits all over Europe for the likes of Lazio, Sporting Lisbon, 1860 Munich, Nice, Club Brugge, Vitesse Arnhem and Udinese.
In the UK, Macron currently have Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, Bolton Wanderers, Millwall, Bristol Rovers and Morecambe.
Their CEO, Gianluca Pavanello, is delighted with their new deal with Reading: “We are really happy about this new partnership with such a historic club like Reading. The goal we want to achieve with them in the next three years is to create a collection of unique and exclusive products that can be worn with pride by both players and fans.”
The Royals’ chief executive, Nigel Howe, has said: “I am delighted we have been able to agree a new partnership with Macron and we look forward to working together to provide our supporters with some brand new blue-and-white-hooped home kits as well as exciting new away strip, goalkeeper shirt and training wear designs across the next three seasons.”
It has been a tough season for Reading in the Championship this season but it looks Jose Gomes has done enough now to keep them up. Their captain Liam Moore has urged the club’s owners to sign some players this summer, as reported by The72 earlier today.
