Lazio’s kit manufacturer deal with Italian sporting apparel company Macron runs through 2022, and the Biancocelesti will need to decide whether they want to extend their deal or venture with a new company.
For Macron, Lazio is one of their high profile clients aside from Club Brugge, Sporting CP and Real Sociedad. Nonetheless, with their current contract expiring in 2022, the Rome-based wants to sell this contract to the highest bidder.
The 2021-22 season marks the 10th season of Macron and Lazio’s partnership. Macron’s CEO, Gianluca Pavanello, hopes that there can be an agreement extension that benefits both sides, as he stated during an interview with RadioSei (via Lazio News).
We have technical sponsorship contracts in football with 80 clubs, including 5 in Italy.
Our relationship with Lazio has been going on happily for nine years; next year will be the tenth year we are making kits for them. We are talking about moving forward; it is our desire, and I am sure it is also that of the club. It is clear that in a negotiation phase, a club will try do look for a deal that benefits them most from an economic point of view.
We are very focused on quality, on beauty, without forgetting the traditional needs of the fans.
In February, Calcio e Finanza reported that Lazio had struck a deal with Castore kits. The Italian media outlet added that the English company was willing to offer €4 million per season starting in the 2022-23 campaign.
Lazio will either sign with Castore or look to use this offer to squeeze out a better deal with Macron.
