Cardiff Blues have confirmed that Macron will be their new kit supplier from next season until 2022. The Bologna-based sporting apparel company replace Canterbury, who have been the Welsh region's kit supplier for more than 10 years.

This new partnership will see all Cardiff Blues age-grades, the ladies set-up and the senior men all supplied with bespoke kits.

The majority of both the teamwear and leisurewear ranges have been designed specifically for Cardiff Blues, combining traditional styles with unique fine details.

Cardiff Blues chief executive Richard Holland said: "We're delighted to sign this new sponsorship with Macron and are really excited about what the future holds working together.

"We are very grateful to Canterbury for all the years we have worked together but see this as an exciting opportunity for change and have been impressed with all of our dealings with Macron so far.

"They have made huge strides in recent years and are now firmly established as a top quality rugby supplier.

"The deal sees a substantial uplift in commercial value and the opportunity to kit out not only our first team but also all of our age-grades and the women was too good to turn down.”

Cardiff Blues are the fourth Guinness PRO14 team to be supplied by Macron, following on from Edinburgh Rugby, Glasgow Warriors and the Scarlets.

The Italian firm also supply their own national team and Scotland plus the likes of Northampton Saints, Pau, Lyon and Biarritz Olympique.
