Kit supplier and sponsor from 21/22


Recommended Posts

Probably linked to why the squad's never quite ready for the first game of each season either and why revenue is down. Bad planning, bad foresight and an inability to get things done throughout the club. We seem to have a kit released when there's no choice other than to release a kit i.e. the season is starting. Right now a shirt isn't absolutely necessary so we don't have one. A bit like a squad of permanent players, we will scrape one together on deadline day if allowed to do so.

Rumoured third kit inspired by ToMo's vision  

It's unbelievable how low the standard of basic literacy and proof-reading has dropped in our local rag. It really does say 'shits' in the published version of the article. And some arseholes on here

If this was unusual territory for us then I might believe that it was down to Covid supply delays or issues with switching to a new manufacturer.

But given we are always among the last to release new kits, even when we've been stuck with Umbro for years, that we often turn up for pre season games wearing kits from the year before, given we are late with everything else including ticket sales then I'll file it in the tray with self inflicted issues

Maybe not something that causes concern to most, after all whats a new kit and a few weeks of delay?

Well its pounds through the tills so quite important actually.

Also says something about the setup and image of the club, which you can't put a price on.

It’s clearly not our decision, it’s the manufacturers.

I assume our shirt release dates correlate quite closely with sales. Why would Umbro/Macron get ours out ahead of other clubs if we’ll only shift a couple of thousand at best. Most prem clubs have theirs out in May and I doubt that’s a coincidence.

It’s weird I went to the ewood concourse sale a couple of weeks back and when I was paying heard a chap (who I believe to be Warren Lucy going off his voice) talking to the retail manager saying he’d seen something in the flesh and it was majestic.

I assumed he was referring to the kit and a teaser or reveal was imminent but nothing since

Might not be our decision but if we waited until the last minute to confirm everything we'll have been punted to the back of the queue behind everyone else with actual organisation behind the scenes.

It's all speculation though so who know?

Talking about Madam D's arse perhaps??

I wonder if the kit is still on the roof from Umbro’s genius reveal campaign last season

What is it about Rovers that means that no matter the provider, we don’t have a kit to unveil until weeks after every else?

Don't worry, the final sign-off paper is almost at the top of Barry's inbox.

My daughter is down at Ewood this week.

All the Umbro advertising etc is still in situ. No hurry eh lads?...

They have probably been told to look after their own timescale for delivery of the kit.

The Millwall Macron kit has been revealed. Interestingly for a release date of 23rd July 2021, so I wouldn't expect the Rovers kit to be released by then (next Friday).

I have to say its another attractive effort (IMHO)

Sheffield Wednesday are in the same position as Rovers, having just joined the Macron group. They too are playing in pre-season strips for their friendlies...enabled I'm sure by a more traditional striped design, and therefore using a Macron Teamwear design.

Expect to see the Rovers/Wednesday strips be revealed and released at the same time.

Looking for clues from this, Wednesday do flip-flop between their shorts colours, blue/black. Interesting to see the preseason kit has black shorts....maybe a nod to their official design?

As for Rovers, I think the blue shorts are a nod to contrast with the white shirt, rather than using blue shorts with the home kit (last seen in 04/05) although..maybe the choice of sock colour...could mean a return to white rather than blue?

Could be way off the mark.

Looks like the away kits leaked

Clean lines and even stripes and that could’ve been good. Looks like they’ve gone for the confused barcode look though.

There's a few things that make me think it isn't real.

The Macron logo on the sleeve is too low down compared to every other Macron made shirt. Plus it only appears to be on one sleeve as opposed to both.

The Macron logo on the front seems too small compared to the other shirts they have made.

The little box in the bottom right corner isn't a Macron thing. They usually use a line of text saying 'MPerformanceSystem'.

The away kit is red & black halves unless a certain member of the Rovers squad is telling porkies. Which I highly doubt

Which player has said that?

Southend announce Macron as kit supplier. Pre orders from August 2nd, collection August 15th

Therefore not ready for August 7th, League 2 kick off

 

Southend are now in the Conference not League Two. Not sure if that makes any difference to their kick off.

As much as fans loved that kit I'm sure it was said to have 'cannibalised' sales of the home shirt, ultimately reducing revenue. I'd therefore be (happily) surprised if they went back to it.
