Hull FC have today announced a multi-year deal with Castore ahead of the 2024 season.
In a statement posted to the clubs website, the Black and Whites suggest the new deal with the British sportswear company, who already provide kit to NRL sides Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters, is “likely to become Super League’s biggest ever merchandise partnership”.
Speaking to the clubs website, Hull FC’s Chief Executive, James Clark, said: “This is the club’s most lucrative commercial partnership of the modern day era and arguably our most high-profile, partnering with an organisation that shares our values and ambition.
“Castore deliver products of the highest quality and are building an impressive network of international partners that we are proud to now be part of, aligned to some of the biggest teams in professional sport.
“We have been impressed with their ambition and attitude, and specifically their desire to be a homegrown success story, based in the north of England and with proud British routes, which can challenge the big players in the international sportswear market; an ethos not too dissimilar to our own.”
The deal is also the largest commercial partnership in the club’s history.
As part of the deal with Castore, Hull FC will unveil a brand-new retail store in Hull City Centre, which will open on Friday 20th October.
As part of the event, the club will also launch their new principal and alternate jerseys, alongside some of their accompanying training ranges.
The event will take place in St Stephen’s Shopping Centre from 6.00pm on Friday 20th October, and will also give fans the chance to meet new signings Jack Ashworth and Morgan Smith for the first-time, as well as club captain Carlos Tuimavave.
