Macron and PAOK Thessaloniki to remain together: eyes on the Centenary
The partnership between Macron and PAOK Thessaloniki is being consolidated and is destined to reach ‘double figures’ in terms of years together. The agreement that was first signed in the 2015-16 season has just been renewed and the Macron Hero will continue to appear on the Greek club's black and white shirts until 2027, taking the years of partnership to over 10 in total. Alongside PAOK, one of the top clubs in Souper Ligka Ellada – the country's premier division – Macron has celebrated a national league championship title and four Greek Cups over this period.
Over the years, this close partnership has given rise to a series of unique collections featuring innovative designs, and high-performance, ecologically sustainable fabrics. The team's history and symbols have been enhanced by innovative styling to convey the sense of belonging felt by players and fans. The club, whose logo is a two-headed eagle, will enter its centenary year in 2026. Celebrating this important event together is one of the aims of the renewed partnership, which will lead to the production of a teamwear line worthy of a hundred years of footballing history.
“We are delighted to announce the extension of our agreement with PAOK Thessaloniki,” declared Gianluca Pavanello, CEO of Macron. “When a partnership lasts over 10 years, it means that the ties that bind the parties go far beyond technical support alone. In these years we have worked closely together to create teamwear that has always been highly successful and that has been able to blend the club's traditions with the latest styles and designs. We are happy to continue our partnership and to develop new match kits that combine top performance with the values, history and traditions of PAOK.”
“We are delighted to be renewing our contract with one of our most important collaborators in recent years. We have built a strong relationship with Macron from 2015, and we will continue on our common path together until 2027. We are completely satisfied with the results from the partnership that we have had to date, and we are looking forward to working together to create new kits for PAOK in the coming years.” said Chrysostomos Gagatsis, CEO of PAOK FC.
