Macron in three-year referees kit supply deal with Uefa
By Euan Cunningham
Macron, the Italian sportswear manufacturer, has signed a three-year referee’s kit supply deal with Uefa, European soccer’s governing body
In the process, Macron becomes the first Italian sportswear company to provide kit to Uefa's referees section.
Despite reports that Adidas would be coming to the end of its time as the referees kit supplier in summer 2018 (when its contract was thought to run out), Uefa told Sportcal that “referees have been wearing Adidas-branded kits this (2018/19) season.”
The Adidas deal had also included match balls for Uefa fixtures. However, these rights were separated out earlier this season. Molten, the Japanese ball manufacturer, has now been appointed as the supplier for the Europa League.
