Stirling Albion announce Macron deal
Scottish Third Division club Stirling Albion have announced that they have reached a deal with Italian brand Macron to supply the club’s kits. The initial deal is set to run for three years.
The club also revealed the kit design for the 2013/14 season, also noting that the shirt will last for one season as the club has ambitious plans for 2014/15 and 2015/16 when it will be celebrating its 70th anniversary and thus a special commemorative return of an iconic strip from the past is due.
Stirling Albion also announced that Trust Members will be invited to vote for the design of the club’s away / change shirt for the next two seasons.
Operations Director, Stuart Brown, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have secured this deal with Macron. Over the past month, I’ve worked closely with Ray Pennock of Macron and I’m confident that we have a contract in place that provides excellent value for Stirling Albion. For our part, we will be doing everything we can to promote the Macron brand and I very much look forward to working with Ray and his Macron colleagues as we move forward in partnership.”
On behalf of Macron, Ray Pennock said: “We here at Macron Store Neath are proud and delighted that Stirling Albion FC have joined us in a three-year technical kit sponsorship deal, and in addition join the ever-growing list of professional football clubs in the UK.
“We are looking forward to working closely with Stuart and all connected with the Club to provide Stirling Albion FC with the image to match their ambition over the next three years, particularly in view of the club’s 70th Anniversary in the not too distant future. Following our discussions over recent weeks and months, Stirling Albion FC have been a real pleasure to deal with and the Club has shown me a great passion and desire for success and I am sure that we will build a very successful future together.”
