OXFORD United will have a new kit supplier next season after agreeing a deal with Macron.

The sportswear company will provide the official kit and training wear to the U’s first-team, women’s and academy sides until summer 2026.

It ends United’s four-year partnership with Puma, who replaced Starter in 2018.

U’s managing director Niall McWilliams told the club’s official website: “I am delighted we have launched our new partnership with Macron having worked alongside them in preparation for the 2022/23 season.

“We have been impressed with the innovation demonstrated to date, and we hope our supporters will be very satisfied with the new kit offerings when they are revealed later this summer.”

In a statement, United said the partnership would be a ‘big step forward’ in ‘elevating the level of quality and character in the official kits’.

Macron, based in the Italian city of Bologna, is in partnership with several Serie A clubs including Lazio, Sampdoria and Udinese.

The company is also the kit supplier for Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest and Sky Bet Championship sides Blackburn Rovers, Stoke City, Millwall and Reading.
