Castore and Glasgow Rangers have unveiled the 2020/21 Home kit to Rangers supporters around the world and enter an exciting new era in the club’s recent history.
Inspired by the iconic Rangers jerseys of the past – which have been worn by so many illustrious captains as they have lifted countless trophies, the jersey celebrates this history while adding modern performance features demonstrating the best of Castore’s technical engineering expertise.
Director of Commercial & Marketing, James Bisgrove, commented, “The 20/21 Home kit is a significant milestone moment and first step in our exciting new journey with Castore, as the clubs new kit and retail partner.”
“We firmly believe the Castore partnership will enable the club to reach our full commercial potential and, in turn, allow us to provide maximum support to Ross, Steven and the first team squad.”
Castore creates products that make athletes better, developing fabrics that are lighter, more flexible and more durable than anything else in the market. Sport at the very highest level often comes down to the smallest margins and next season’s jersey is designed to give Rangers players an edge.
The jersey maintains the famous royal blue colourway of so many great title winning teams throughout history and combines this with a unique new wave pattern, designed to symbolise the Blue Sea of Ibrox and represent a new era for the club.
The ultra-technical fabric further exemplifies the fusion of traditional and modern and the white and red trims represent the iconic Rangers colours with a mesh panelling design to enhance sweat wicking.
A highly technical constructed collar design is a contemporary take on a classic silhouette and is specifically cut to enhance ease of movement and comfort.
