OFFICIAL: Rangers Confirm Castore Kit Deal - Brand to Sign Up to 5 'Major Clubs Across Europe'

Confirming the previous rumors, Rangers and Castore have this morning officially announced their kit sponsorship deal, which will run for an initial five years.

While no financial details were provided, earlier reports had suggested that the Rangers Castore kit deal would be worth £20 million over the initial five-year period or £4 million per season.

Castore beat out the likes of Puma and Macron, who were also interested. Recently, we've also seen the supposed full Rangers Castore 20-21 collection, including home, away, third and goalkeeper kits, get leaked.

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.”

Phil Beahon, Castore Co-Founder, commented: “We have built this business ourselves, from the ground up, brick by brick. It has taken sacrifice, pain, and an immense amount of hard work to get us here. This is personal for us. We are fully aware of the expectations in partnering with this great club and are relishing the opportunity to make the supporters proud.

“Rangers supporters are in every corner of the United Kingdom and beyond. We are excited about seeing our brand, in royal blue, spread across the globe.”
