The Bulgarian Football Union signed a long-term contract with the Italian sporting apparel company Macron. One of the leading worldwide brands will provide equipment for the Bulgarian national teams starting from the beginning of this year.
“I am extremely pleased that we are now partnering with such a renowned brand. This shows not only trust in the quality of Bulgarian football but in the future of our national teams. Both parties are aware of the great potential that Bulgaria has and the massive interest of our fan base and will therefore produce a special merchandise collection for our supporters. I am thankful to our previous partners for their professional behaviour and I am certain that Bulgaria will reach new levels with the Macron equipment”, said BFU president Borislav Mihaylov.
As part of the agreement between the Bulgarian Football Union and the Italian sportswear company three different match day shirts will be produced in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the BFU and the upcoming centennial of the Bulgarian national teams. The custom-made kits, featuring elements from the Bulgarian history, will make their debut in the June national team games.
The Bologna-based company is one of the fastest-growing brands in the industry and is currently in the Top 3 worldwide in terms of both volume and number of partner clubs and teams. The brand is an official partner of UEFA providing refereeing equipment for all European competitions and has been doing the same for Bulgarian referees since the start of the 2022/23 season.
