Macron as our new official supplier of Sports Material
APOEL FOOTBALL (PUBLIC) LTD proudly announces the beginning of the cooperation with Macron, the athletic clothing company that stands out for its fast growth and presence in the international field.
Our collaboration with Macron begins in the period 2019-2020, a time when we as APOEL FC are champions for the seventh consecutive season. We welcome our new partner and we are looking forward to working closely together in order to break our boundaries and write new golden pages in our history.
Our relationship with our new partner will be immediate and multifaceted.
"The agreement with APOEL Football represents an extra piece of mosaic of top European Clubs that have selected Macron as an official supplier of Sports Material," said Gianluca Pavanello, Macron's CEO. "APOEL is a club with a great tradition and multiple successes, which we want to highlight and emphasize as we do. For this reason, in collaboration with the Cypriot team members, we created the official appearances by which we celebrate the history of the club in combination with the quality and technical characteristics of our products, as well as a series of exclusive products dedicated to the blue-yellow fans.
The Macron designers and the personnel of the Cypriot club are already working together to design next season’s new jerseys, which will be distinguished, as all the technical apparel will, by the new icon of the Italian brand: the Macron Hero. The logo features the human body and takes inspiration from the tip of the spear, by definition a representation of dynamism and speed. The Macron Hero effectively symbolizes the joy at the end of a challenge, the achievement of a goal, effort, passion and determination. The Macron philosophy: “Work hard. Play harder”.
From APOEL's point of view, General Manager Efthymios Agathokleous said: "It is with great pleasure that we begin our collaboration with Macron. At the moment, Macron is the fastest growing supplier of sports equipment. The trust in the quality of its products shown by very large Clubs is reflected in Macron’s advance in the market as it is already ranked among the top suppliers of the world. We look forward to a close and successful cooperation that will be full of great and historic achievements."
