26 Jun MACRON ANNOUNCED AS BRIDGEND RAVENS’ NEW KIT PARTNER
Bridgend Ravens are pleased to announce that the club has signed a deal with Macron, which will see the manufacturer become the club’s official kit partner for the next three seasons.
The Bologna based apparel company have joined forces with Bridgend Ravens ahead of the 2020/21 Indigo Premiership campaign, replacing KIT Sportwear who supplied the club’s jerseys and leisurewear last season. Despite having Italian origins, Macron’s Cardiff team will be responsible for supplying and dealing with all things Bridgend Ravens.
Work on preparing for the new season is already underway, with Macron’s designers formulating designs for a range of on and off the field leisurewear, alongside the all important home and change jerseys in conjunction with the Bridgend Ravens design team.
Macron currently provides kit services to over 50 professional sports teams – including Welsh regional sides Cardiff Blues and the Scarlets. Their client base also includes the Scottish and Italian international sides as they continue their rapid expansion which has accelerated in recent years. Macron’s Cardiff division also work in partnership with Penybont FC, Bridgend’s Premier football side based in Bryntirion.
Bridgend Ravens plan to have some items stocked at the club shop at the Morganstone Brewery Field which will be open during all Bridgend Ravens home match days (and other dates/times TBC), while Macron Cardiff will operate an online club shop, selling a range of Bridgend Ravens items available to be shipped worldwide.
Macron’s Jamie Sylvester commented on adding Bridgend Ravens to their rugby family ‘We are delighted to have signed such an iconic Welsh rugby club in Bridgend Ravens, thus increasing the Macron portfolio in the rugby world, in Wales and beyond.
We can’t wait to provide the elite athletes and supporters with top quality kit and merchandise for the next three years and hopefully beyond. We’ve launched a club shop, with a full range of leisurewear on our website https://macronstorecardiff.co.uk/bridgend-ravens-rfc.’
Bridgend Ravens Club Secretary, Tony Williams, said ‘We’re really pleased that such a prestigious brand is keen to link up with Bridgend Ravens. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to review everything at the club and in this particular area, we were looking for a partner for the next three years to provide continuity, reliability and good customer service. We held detailed discussions with the team at Macron Cardiff and we’re certain that they’re able to deliver a range of products for our team, members and ever growing supporter base that we’ll all be delighted with. We look forward to releasing a good quality, expansive range of supporters merchandise in due course.’
