Macron S.p.A. is an Italian sporting apparel company, based in Crespellano, Bologna.

Macron operates in three main business areas:

History[edit]

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 governance[edit]

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


Sponsorships and customers[edit]

Macron sponsors or co-sponsors 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. Following is a partial list of these sponsorship/customer relationships.
