Macron, despite its youth, is one of the fastest-growing sportswear brands in Europe. Expansion is engrained in its history -- starting as a distributor of American sporting equipment, Macron has quickly grown to be a major manufacturer for professional and recreational sportswear and provides kit for hundreds of teams across all kinds of play. Macron’s commitment to growth extends to the players it supports, both on and off the field.
