BRADFORD (Park Avenue) will be donning their traditional green and white strip at Horsfall next season after announcing that they have signed an agreement with Macron until 2023.

In a debate that often divides the Avenue faithful, the club wore black, amber and red as their home shirt last term with branding of the ground following suit.

Despite using green and white for their away kit, Bradford have decided to revert back to the colours, that are synonymous with the success they enjoyed in their football league days back in the sixties, for their primary jersey in the 2020/21 campaign.

Macron S.p.A. is an Italian sporting apparel company, based in Crespellano, Bologna, which create kits for sports such as football, basketball, rugby, volleyball and running.

Currently, they are suppliers for the likes of Lazio, Sporting Lisbon, Real Sociedad and the Italian Rugby Union team, and have been in the past for Leeds and West Ham United.

After speaking to Macron's UK & Ireland, Scandinavia and Australia country manager Andrea Palilla, Avenue believe that their values of hard work and constant improvement align with the Italian manufacturer.

The return to green and white will streamline throughout the club for all their academy and ladies teams.

Avenue's director of football Martin Knight believes after weighing up all the options, the club have ended up with the best supplier.

He said: "This has been a tricky process, trying to balance the financial needs of the business, the traditions of the club and the desires of the fans.

"After speaking with three major brands during the process, it became clear that Macron offered us the best solution to try and meet the majority of those key drivers.

"Neil (Holroyd) and Andrea (Palilla), have been incredibly patient and professional with us. We are really pleased that we have a long term agreement in place with them, that stability will allow us to plan better for the future."

Macron Wakefield owner Neil Holroyd added: "Macron are very pleased to have signed a multi-year deal with Bradford park Avenue and are very excited for the future of the club.

"Having met Martin (Knight) and visited the ground, there is a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes and with the facilities.

"A club with a lot of history and loyal fans, we are looking forward to help fill their ambitions and plans."
