Italian Serie A football club Hellas Verona has named sportswear manufacturer Macron as its new kit supplier.
The five-year deal begins on July 1 and runs until the end of the 2022-23 season. Italian firm Macron will replace US sportswear brand Nike as Verona’s kit supplier.
As well as providing kit for the club, Macron will be involved in merchandising and retail initiatives, including the re-establishment of the club’s official store in the centre of Verona.
Club president Maurizio Setti said: “This choice was strongly desired, after considering the most important factors of the kit scene and after an evaluation period that lasted several months. Macron has proven to be close to our values and from this new partnership will be born the shirts, as well as an entire product range, from next season.”
Verona is currently 19th in the Serie A table, three points from safety from relegation with six matches of the 2018-19 season remaining.
