Castore Announce Latest Partnership With MK Dons
Premium sportswear brand, Castore, and Milton Keynes Dons are delighted to announce their latest partnership, with Castore becoming the club’s Official Technical and Retail Partner and Official Kit Supplier.
As part of the partnership, Castore will control the club’s retail operations, which will include a new store at Stadium MK and an updated online site. Castore will supply MK Dons first-team with both match and training kit for the 2022/23 season.
The Stadium MK store is set to open in August, while the online shop will be launched in time for supporters to get their hands on the new kit prior to the start of the season.
Next season, MK Dons players will wear a Castore pro shirt, crafted from ultra-lightweight performance fabric that’s been engineered to offer superior breathability and moisture-wicking, with enhanced ventilation. The high-stretch properties also allow for complete ease of movement and comfort of fit during play.
MK Dons joins Castore’s growing list of sporting partners including, Sir Andy Murray, Rangers F.C., Newcastle United F.C., McLaren F1 and England Cricket.
Pete Winkelman, MK Dons Chairman, said: “We are grateful to Errea for all their help and support over the past seven years but we felt now was the right time to move in a different direction when it comes to our retailing and kit manufacture.
“Castore are an exciting young company who are establishing themselves as one of the top sportswear providers in the country and that is why this partnership makes real sense and is why we are so enthused and energised by this opportunity to work with them.”
Simon Crampton, Performance Director at MK Dons, said: “We wanted a kit that would utilise the latest scientific and technological know-how, as well as one that would help optimise our athletic performance on the pitch - Castore absolutely met our brief across all areas.
“Castore have a philosophy of ‘Better Never Stops’ and that completely resonates with our journey at Milton Keynes Dons and we are all very excited about this partnership and are looking forward to the 2022/23 season, and beyond, wearing a Castore kit.”
Tom Beahon, Co-founder of Castore, said: “We’re incredibly excited to announce Castore’s latest partnership with MK Dons and to be expanding further in to the world of English football.
“MK Dons have a spirit from the players to the backroom staff and fans that embodies the ‘Better Never Stops’ philosophy that is in the DNA of everything we do at Castore.”
Castore and MK Dons are set to unveil their kits for the 2022/23 season within the coming weeks.
