Confirmed: Rangers agree multi-year kit deal with Castore

Rangers have announced Castore as their official kit manufacturer for the 2020/21 campaign. 

The club made the reveal via a statement on Sunday morning.

The Liverpudlian-based company are described by the Gers as the “fastest growing premium British sportswear brand”, and claim that they have “deliberately” selected Rangers as the flagship club for their move into the world of football.

It is understood that a multi-year partnership has been struck between the brand and Rangers, with Castore looking to supply kit for three to five other major clubs across Europe over the next 18 months.

The Gers also point out that brand are backed by an international consortium of investors with a combined wealth of around £5 billion.

Speaking in response to the deal, Castore co-founder Tom Beahon said:“In our search for our first elite club, nobody came close to matching Rangers.

We cannot wait to be part of the next chapter of success for this prestigious football club. Rangers is an institution and the world’s most successful football club.

“Our business has grown rapidly since we started and we now have a group of very strong investors backing us, with very high expectations.

“Partnering with Rangers is a seminal milestone for us on our journey of building Castore into the brand we want it to be and we have absolutely no intention of stopping in our pursuit of our goals.’’

Is this a good deal for Rangers?

Castore may not be a household name on par with the likes of Adidas or Nike just yet, but everybody has to start somewhere, and it sounds as if they have every intention of making a real success of their foray into the world of football.

Having previously supplied kit for tennis icon Andy Murray, it is clear that they are able mix it with some of the biggest names in professional sport, and if they can translate that into their deal at Ibrox then this could be a real positive for the Gers.

A report from SportCal recently suggested that an agreement could be worth around £20 million, and while that may not quite be on par with the £30 million that Celtic are supposedly getting from their deal with Adidas, it will still represent a significant boost for the club, as pointed out to Ibrox News by Alex Bruce.
