British sportswear brand Castore has announced a 3-year partnership with former Manchester United and England player, Gary Neville.
Neville, who now operates as a pundit and commentator for Sky Sports, will see Castore become his technical, performance and lifestyle sportswear partner.
Castore has generated a number of athletes to become brand ambassadors, having recently announced cricketer Jos Buttler and England rugby star Owen Farrell. Former tennis number one Sir Andy Murray has also held a long-term deal with Castore.
The brand has also obtained a kit manufacturing deal with Rangers and reports have suggested a possible deal could be agreed with Premier League side Newcastle United.
“Gary is an icon," started Pascal Lafitte, head of team partnerships at Castore. "A respected and integral part of football, knowledgeable and analytical, his expertise brings the game to life. His attitude is inspirational, and his passion is unquestionable. An ethos that perfectly fits the Castore brand."
Gary Neville added: “I'm delighted to work with Castore, a truly innovative and exciting British brand, created by athletes, to make athletes better.
"They're on a mission to make the highest quality sportswear in the world, and they're challenging the market like no other, so I'm proud to join them and be part of their mission."
In a statement, Castore have confirmed they will be working with Footprint Sports & Entertainment "to bring this partnership to life".
