HistoryEdit

 
Persepolis' first kit in 2014-15

Macron was founded in 1971 as a distributor of American sportswear brands in Italy.[2] A major expansion of the organization took place in 1994, coincident with relocation and consolidation to Crespellano.[2]

Macron began providing teamwear to professional football in 2001, its first contract being with Bologna.[2] Expansion beyond the domestic Italian market began in 2005.[2]

In 2014, Macron secured a four-year agreement with Bolton Wanderers for naming rights to their home stadium, resulting in renaming in July 2014 to Macron Stadium.[3] Macron supplanted Reebok as the stadium namesake, and will provide the club's kit.[3]

Corporate governanceEdit

As of 2014, Macron's chief executive officer (CEO) was Gianluca Pavanello.[4] and the company's president was Francesco Bromioli.[5]

Sponsorships and customersEdit

Macron sponsors or make a variety of organizations, teams and, events. In many cases, the wording of published accounts does not make a clear demarcation between a case where a team has purchased kit (aka uniforms or strip) versus those whose kit has been provided as a matter of sponsorship. The following is a partial list of these sponsorship/customer relationships.

NotesEdit

a. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008. Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo is currently recognized as an independent state by 98 out of the 193 United Nations member states. In total, 113 UN member states recognized Kosovo at some point, of which 15 later withdrew their recognition.
