When do Rangers Castore and Kindred shirt sponsorship deals end?

Castore didn't get off to the best starts as Rangers' kit suppliers with significant teething problems and fan complaints.

But things got much smoother and more recently supporters have been praising the manufacturer for their recent new kit designs. Just last week, the Ibrox club revealed their new away kit for the 2024/25 season and it was a smash hit with punters.

As has been the case for the past few years, the main sponsor on the shirt is Unibet as part of a deal with parent group Kindred. That started in 2014 and saw their other gambling firm 32Red as the kit sponsor previously. It's been a long-running link-up and has been renewed since, but when does it end?

Here, Football Scotland takes a look at Rangers' sponsorship deals and when they come to a close.


Castore replaced Hummel as Rangers' kit supplier in 2020, signing a five-year agreement. After some early teething issues, with the firm apologising for errors amid criticism from fans, the club's commercial department hinted they could "go to market" to find a replacement.

Despite that, the partnership has endured and is now nearing an end. The deal, with £25million to the Ibrox club, is due to end next year. Castore were a rookie firm at the time of signing with Gers and it was another significant milestone for them after working with Andy Murray. Both parties will now have to review the partnership and decide if they will look to extend it.


Rangers have been in “one of the longest running agreements in British football” with Kindred Group, which is the parent company of current shirt sponsor UniBet and previous one 32 Red. The agreement originates from 2014 and was most recently extended in 2021 with the Ibrox club saying it was the biggest deal in their entire history. At that time Rangers described it as a multi-year partnership so it's not clear exactly when it is due to run out.

Outgoing CEO James Bisgrove, then commercial and marketing director, said: “I am delighted that the club and 32Red have agreed to extend the partnership, which is excellent news for the continued commercial growth of the club and represents the largest sponsorship agreements in our 150-year history. 32Red have supported our club for many years of our journey back to the pinnacle of Scottish football and our historic 55th league title.

“They’ve been part of our journey both on the pitch and in the community and we are grateful for their fantastic support. They are long-term partners and we hope to continue the successful, winning, relationship for many years to come. As we embark on our historic 150th anniversary season and looking forward to UEFA Champions League football at Ibrox, it will be symbolic of the strength of our partnership that 32Red and Unibet will be on the front of our shirts.”
