Rangers retail partners Castore announce five-year Saracens RFC kit deal

Rangers retail partners Castore have announced a new deal with Saracens RFC as they prepare for their return to the RFU Premiership.

The rugby union side earned promotion to the top tier of the game in this country last season by winning the RFU Championship title.

They have now signed a five-year deal with Castore ahead of their return to the Premiership and this deal follows promotional contracts with the likes of England rugby captain Owen Farrell.

Starting on the 1st of July, the kit manufacturer will supply the Saracens kits for their men’s and women’s sides as well as their Mavericks netballs team.

The London based RFC’s kits will then be released in late summer, just in time for the new season beginning.

“We are very excited to be entering a new chapter with Castore and look forward to embracing them into the Saracens family,” said Saracens CEO Lucy Wray [Saracens].

“Castore are at the forefront of innovation with their sportswear and our values are very much aligned, so we are thrilled to be at the start of a ground-breaking partnership.

“We look forward to unveiling the kits this summer, which I’m sure will be hugely popular amongst our supporters.”

Castore co-founder Tom Beahon said the retailer was “delighted” to sign the deal and describe Saracens as “an iconic English club known and respected across the globe.”

The deal with Saracens come after Castore have signed high profile deals with the likes of Rangers FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers, McLaren F1, Sydney Roosters and Melbourne Storm, alongside a host of world class athletes.

The sports brand have been taking major strides over the last 18 months with their landmark deal with Rangers proving the catalyst for much interest elsewhere.

One of the brands co-founders claimed that the success of the Rangers deal helped them to convince Wolves to become their first Premier League partner.
