Exclusive: No More Macron - Nice to Switch to Le Coq Sportif
We can exclusively reveal that Le Coq Sportif will replace Macron as OGC Nice's kit supplier from the 23-24 season onwards.
Nice to Sign Le Coq Sportif Kit Deal
Nice have been kitted out by Macron since the 16-17 season. The deal was extended in 2019 with a new end date set for June 2023, but will not be renewed beyond next summer. Instead, Le Coq Sportif will become their new technical partner.
The French brand currently only sponsor one team in Ligue 1, ESTAC Troyes, having lost St. Etienne (now Ligue 2) to Hummel this summer, so the addition of Nice to their roster will boost their presence in their home country. Macron will be down to two clubs, Nantes and Auxerre, when their Nice contract runs out.
Some of Macrons best and worst efforts for Nice.
Le Coq Sportif made Nice's kits in the 1970s and early 80s, with one home jersey in particular becoming something of a cult classic, thanks to a certain pop star wearing it for a photoshoot with L'Équipe.
