According to Sportcal, Newcastle United will have a new kit supplier for the 2021/22 season – with the emerging UK brand ‘Castore’ set to take the reigns from PUMA.
It’s believed to be a ‘multi-year deal’ worth over £5 million per season.
The Liverpool-based brand are a rather unknown entity, but they do currently supply Rangers’s kits – and fans have given mixed reviews of the new supplier.
Despite the dubious links, Castore insist that Mike Ashley holds no stake in the brand.
That said, it’s already emerged that Rangers fans have been less than impressed with the quality of their replica kits this year, with issues over the printing and stitching being highlighted.
Considering our agreement with PUMA was believed to be one of the club’s most lucrative kit deals, it’ll be interesting to see how this one stacks up in comparison.
