Rangers claim they are thrilled to announce a new partnership with “global” electrical brand Socomec, who will provide shirt sponsorship next season.
The electric, engineering and manufacturing group will sponsor part of the back of the men’s shirt for season 22/23 in what is their centenary year.
Founded in France in 1922, the family-owned business has grown into a global force in their industry and now employ 3600 people across five continents.
Socomec specialise in low voltage energy performance and the deal is the latest struck by marketing director James Bisgrove as Rangers look to increase their commercial revenues.
Thanks to the run to the Europa League final, the Ibrox side have already surpassed their commercial targets for this year.
Rangers “thrilled” to sign Socomec deal
Speaking to the official Rangers website upon signing the deal, Bisgrove claimed the Ibrox side were “thrilled” to have Socomec on board.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Socomec onboard as Official Partner ahead of the upcoming 22/23 campaign,” said Bisgrove.
“Socomec is a leading international organisation with over 100 years of rich heritage in manufacturing and developing electrical technologies worldwide.
“We look forward to working closely with the Socomec team to further develop their brand presence across the UK.
“In recent years, we’ve developed an excellent relationship with Socomec’s UK partner, MACD Electrical, who will remain as valued hospitality and corporate clients at the club.”
The Gers have also announced that supporters purchasing this season’s 22/23 kit will be able to have the Socomec logo added at the Ibrox store at no extra cost.
Alternatively, Rangers fans can also add a special Charity Foundation logo which recognises Castore donations to the cause over the last few seasons.
On top of this, a special bespoke Castore x Rangers Charity Foundation product is planned for release as the Foundation turns 20.
Meanwhile, an ex-Rangers kid who left the club this summer has just scored the winner in a bizarre friendly against Qatar.
