Castore and Harlequins are delighted to begin their Technical and Retail partnership ahead of the 2022/23 season.
With the new Men’s and Women’s Home playing kits and Travel & Training Wear ranges set to be revealed in the coming weeks, Harlequins and Castore are delighted to announce their new, multi-year partnership.
Seeing unparalleled growth since their inception in 2015, Castore will supply all training and playing wear for the Club, covering the Men’s, Women’s and Youth teams, as well as take over the running of Harlequins’ retail operations at The Stoop.
Castore’s partnership portfolio boasts an impressive line up from England Cricket, Rangers FC, Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sevilla FC, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, McLaren F1 and Auto, and athletes such as Matt Fitzpatrick, Sir Andy Murray and Adam Peaty.
Harlequins CEO Laurie Dalrymple said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Castore as the Club’s Official Technical & Retail partner.
“After 8 very successful seasons partnering with adidas, we have undertaken an extremely thorough process of reviewing our Club Technical & Retail partner, talking to many of the leading global brands in this space. Castore were a clear standout as a best-in-class business that has seen huge growth since its founding in 2015. Their dual approach of supporting our retail operation as well as high quality products for our players and supporters stood head and shoulders above their competition.
“One of the key requirements we identified for our new Technical & Retail partner was the ability to supply high performance clothing for our playing groups, both Men & Women. Castore has a strong record of supplying high-quality women’s-fit clothing and we are excited to see Harlequins Women take to the field in Castore products next season.
“Over the last two years we have seen huge support and engagement for the Club within our loyal supporter base and we are looking forward to seeing this new partnership help to supply our supporters with the latest official Harlequins merchandise – we can’t wait to see their reaction to the new kit.”
Tom Beahon, Castore Co-founder, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Harlequins. As a founding member of the RFU, Harlequins is a truly iconic brand within the world of rugby that is leading the way when it comes to growing the game.
“Harlequins’ annual Big Game, Big Summer Kick-Off and The Game Changer campaigns are sport-leading events within rugby union and perfectly embody Castore’s Better Never Stops ethos. We feel this partnership is an ideal fit for two premium brands that focus on innovation and quality.”
Castore and Harlequins are set to unveil their 2022/23 season kits in the coming months.
