The worst kept secret at St James’ Park is finally out in the open – Castore have been officially confirmed as the club’s new kit suppliers.
A ‘multi-year partnership’ has been announced this morning, seeing the up and coming sportswear brand finally replace PUMA at Newcastle United.
The brand will be creating a ‘bespoke kit’ for the club ahead of the 2021/22 season – due to be released across July and August – and will also take control of the club shop, as well as opening additional retail stores across the city.
See Castore’s announcement video below, which briefly shows Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron in Castore’s official training kits, along with reactions to the news from MD Lee Charnley and co-founder Tom Beahon:
