Best Deal For Non Top Clubs? Macron Does Not Have Such A Thing As A "Strict Pyramid"

Fans of smaller clubs often criticize that they get standard teamwear kits from the biggest brand's. This is also because the big brands have strict guidelines of which teams receive which stuff and treatment. We defined it as a "pyramid of football kit sponsorships" - however, there are some brands that do not classify teams "just of how much money they can make with them".

Macron is possibly the prime example of the brands that give the teams the best deal, at least in order of customization and personal treatment.

Macron's aim is to provide every club with custom designsMacron S.p.A. is an Italian sporting apparel company, based in Crespellano, Bologna. They were founded in 1971 and had a revenue of €79m million in 2015.

Macron does not say that only bigger clubs should get custom products - their aim is to provide every club with custom bespoke looks. Therefore, there is not such thing as a pyramid that defines which clubs are worth to receive custom products.

In fact, all clubs directly sponsored by Macron receive bespoke designs and no standard teamwear shirts. Macron even invites the representative of smaller clubs to their headquarters in order to design and show off the kits that have designed for them and other teams.
