Rangers’ partners Castore have struck a multi-year deal with Cricket South Africa.
When the Gers announced that they had chosen Castore as their official kit and retail supplier in May 2020, the British brand was virtually unknown.
However, they have grown rapidly since then, bringing on board a host of high-profile brand ambassadors like Gary Neville and England rugby union captain Owen Farrell, as well as signing a series of lucrative team deals.
Castore are now providing kits for Premier League clubs Wolves and Newcastle United, while they have a deal with McLaren F1 which will kick in for the 2022 Championship.
Cricket is also an area of focus, and on Thursday, Cricket South Africa confirmed Castore’s appointment as their ‘official apparel partner’ for at least the next three years.
‘The agreement grants Castore exclusivity as the official apparel partner of Team Kit and products to CSA, its Teams, Staff and Players and as CSA’s official merchandising partner,’ read the brief announcement.
We welcome Castore as our official apparel partner for the next three years.

With Castore already supplying kits for the West Indies and recently sealing a deal with England Cricket, they are now working with three of the world’s twelve Test-playing nations.
The Beahon brothers did promise that they and their investors had big plans for the future and it’s remarkable how much their operation has expanded in a relatively short space of time.
