Pleased to see that the potential away kit has got people very exercised on the forum and mailing list.
A couple of points about this.
We are very close to signing a major kit supplier deal – the best one (the first one?) in the Club’s history worth a significant sum over 3 years.
This will see first team kit supplied by an emerging high quality company, Macron, who have (ironically given Jermaine) recently agreed a deal to become exclusive supplier of Leeds United FC. So we are in good company. Macron are an Italian company who produce very high quality sportswear, and these deals are part of their trying to become more established in the UK market.
We are tying up the final details at present but I was keen that we were able to offer some supporter input into the away kit at least. So please feel free to vote, and thanks to Alan Hill for helping to get this up on the website. I wonder how many clubs give their fans the opportunity to have a say in these matters?
We will make an official announcement as soon as the deal is signed and the home kit will then be revealed.
I appreciate that kits can be pretty emotive subjects and you will never get everyone to agree – even the five of us on the board can’t agree – but when we are able to reveal full details of this deal I think most people will understand what a fantastic deal this is for the Club and I hope they will embrace the new kit.
In the last week we have made two important internal appointments and being able to announce the new kit in the coming days will be more fantastic news.
