CAVC Sport launch new partnership with Macron

CAVC Sport is gearing up for years of sporting success thanks to a new partnership with internationally renowned sports brand Macron.

Macron will be providing a full new range of playing kit, training kit and leisure wear for CAVC Sport. This will be worn by CAVC sports academies and teams and will also be available to all students and staff at the College, as well as the general public, via a dedicated website.

Over recent years Cardiff and Vale College has developed a leading reputation for Sport – offering excellent sports facilities, expertise and a wide range of opportunities for students and the wider community.

This includes a unique base at Cardiff International Sports Campus in Leckwith in additional to specialist facilities across CAVC sites. It also includes now well-established sports academies in Rugby, Football and Netball with more in development – many of whom progressed to represent regional or national teams.

James Young, Head of Sport at Cardiff and Vale College said “CAVC is committed to developing the right environment and support for current and future elite athletes to balance learning alongside sporting commitments. Alongside this our strong partnerships with universities and sporting bodies are helping us to ensure our students have the expertise and opportunities to develop and progress.

“We are also passionate about growing participation in sport, developing the range of opportunities available to all and encouraging everyone to become a part of ‘TeamCAVC’. We are delighted to start a new partnership with Macron to work with across CAVC Sport and who are so keen to support us to continue this work into the future.”

Jamie Sylvester, Manager of Macron Store Cardiff, said: “We are very excited that Cardiff and Vale College have agreed to join our fast-expanding Macron Store Cardiff team. We can’t wait to supply students with top quality sportswear to service all their needs to compete at all levels in all sports.”

The new kit deal has come at a time when the College has also launched a dedicated CAVC Sport twitter account, @CAVCSport, which will support the College to profile all of the latest CAVC sports news, highlights, live match coverage and much more.
