Australian A-League side Perth Glory and their official apparel partner Macron have signed a new four-year sponsorship deal. The new contract sees Europe’s fourth-largest apparel brand committed to Perth Glory until the end of the 2020/21 A-League season.
Perth Glory Chief Executive Officer Peter Filopoulos has declared it a coup for the club. “We are really pleased to have renewed our association with Macron with another four years, which will bring the relationship to eight years strong.” said Filopoulos. “We’re proud to be associated with a global football brand like Macron.”
Macron is rapidly becoming one of the top football apparel brands in the world, supporting the likes of European clubs like Sporting Lisbon, OGC Nice, PAOK Saloniki, Hajduk Split, Lazio Roma, Vitesse Arnhem, Crystal Palace FC as well as Audax Italiano, Miami FC.
The Bologna-based company also is the apparel sponsor of Glory’s A-League rivals Adelaide United. Macron Australia and New Zealand Chief Executive Officer David King spoke highly of the club and the positive impact the relationship had brought to the brand. “We have grown significantly in grassroots and now have 30 National Premier League clubs Australia-wide. Perth Glory have played a very big part in that”, stated King.
King and Filopoulos remained tight-lipped on any specific details of the new jersey but praised the 2017/18 design. “My favourite Glory kit will be next years,” King said. “I’ve seen it and it looks very fresh. Fans can continue to expect another great range of good-looking and high quality product which has become synonymous with Macron,” Filopoulos stated.
