The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has confirmed a new multi-million pound seven-year partnership with Macron.
The WRU will not reveal how much the deal is worth but it is believed to be in the region of £30m.
The governing body has stated Macron will also make investment into the community game by providing £6m worth of kit to the 300 clubs.
Wales’ matchday kit will be worn for the first time against France in a warm-up match in Paris on 24 October.
The new Wales home and alternate jerseys will continue to carry front-of-shirt sponsor Isuzu and will be unveiled in early October ahead of the rearranged Six Nations match against Scotland and new-look Autumn Nations Cup.
Macron has long since become a leader in the world of international rugby. As regarding Federations and national teams, Macron is the technical sponsor of Italy, Scotland, Portugal, Canada and German.
At club level in UK the list includes: Newcastle Falcons, Northampton Saints, Glasgow Warriors, Edinburgh Rugby, and of course the Welsh teams Scarlets and Cardiff Blues.
In France: Section Paloise, LOU Rugby, Biarritz Olympique Pays Basque. Macron is also the technical sponsor of the Guinness Pro14 referees.
