Stoke ink Macron kit deal, part ways with New Balance
Stoke City have announced a new kit deal with Macron that will see the latter replace New Balance as the club’s uniform partners beginning the 2016/17 season. The Italian firm have inked a five year contract with the Potters, and the deal is the biggest ever in the club’s history.
In the 2015/16 Premier League season, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa were the only teams to wear Macron designed uniforms. On the continent, the likes of Lazio, Napoli, Sporting Lisbon and Real Betis are all outfitted by Macron. The Italian firm will also provide kits to the Albanian national team at Euro 2016.
Stoke’s deal with Warrior/New Balance dates back to 2014, following the end of their previous four year deal with Adidas.
We are really excited about this new partnership with a top 10 club in what is renowned to be the most watched football league in the world. Our designers have been working round the clock in close collaboration with the Club to develop the new collection that we hope the players and fans will wear with pride
