Rangers retailers Castore have announced a new deal with historic English Championship side Preston North End as they continue to expand.
The Lilywhites are one of English football’s most historic clubs and the deal follows on from retail contracts signed with Rangers, Newcastle Utd, Wolves, Aston Villa and Salford City in the British game.
Castore also have a range of contracts across Europe, with Preston being added to their ranks alongside the likes of Sevilla in Spain, Bayer Leverkusen in Germany and Genoa in Spain.
Founded in 1880, Preston North End were a founding member of the English Football League in 1888 and actually won the inaugural championship, as well as the FA Cup, and retained the title the following year.
“We are delighted to be able to announce our partnership with Castore, who are one of the fastest-growing sportswear brands in the market,” said Preston North End director Peter Ridsdale.
“We look forward to working with Castore throughout this partnership and we are excited to reveal our bespoke kits for the 2023/24 season in the coming months, which we feel will prove extremely popular with supporters.”
Rangers partners Castore strike Preston deal
Castore have their sights set on global domination and the deal with Preston North End comes amid interesting reports surrounding additional funding for the Manchester-based retailer.
Back in February there were reports that Castore were readying £166m of fresh investment as they look to topple sporting giants Adidas and Nike.
The company is also hoping to be valued at over £1bn by the end of the financial year and insiders claim Castore are already looking at around £30m in profits.
Whilst the Rangers deal with Castore has been a major success for the club after years of retail complications alongside Sports Direct, it’s not all been plain sailing as the company looks to expand its reach.
Preston are the latest football club to be added to their roster and it’ll be interesting to see who signs up with Castore next as they continue to expand in football and sport.
