Commercial Update

Post by Mark » Sun May 03, 2020 12:31 pm

RANGERS are delighted to be moving forward into the new 2020/21 football season with a committed and valued family of club partners.

The continued support for our football club, especially in this challenging time is greatly appreciated. We are indebted to their loyalty.

As the world’s most successful football club, we firmly believe in setting the standard within Scottish sport, both on and off the field.

32Red, part of the Kindred group, will continue as the Principal Partner for a seventh consecutive season. As of next season, 32Red’s sister brand Unibet will be introduced into the partnership. We are proud that this partnership stands as one of the most successful within UK football.

Rangers continue to forge strong relationships with both domestic and international brands, with top tier ‘Official Partners’, Utilita, Konami (Pro Evolution Soccer 2020), Carrick and DCP.

The partner family will be completed by Coca Cola, Molton Brown, Tennent’s, Sporting Pay, CTM, Clarity Sports, Turnberry, Fan Logic, A Friend and Rangers Protect. The width and depth of our commercial partnerships continues to grow in anticipation of our 150th anniversary year, with a number of new partners to be introduced over the summer months.

Furthermore, Rangers will begin the 2020/21 football season with a new kit and retail operations partner, following the conclusion of all existing contracts.

James Bisgrove, Director of Commercial and Marketing said: “The club is incredibly excited to introduce its new kit & retail partner to Rangers supporters world-wide imminently. This represents a clean slate and marks the start of a new era in the club’s commercial retail operations. The partnership will be a significant step forward in Rangers’ recent history.”

The Megastore at Ibrox will undergo a significant renovation over the summer, once the appropriate Government guidelines allow.

A further update and announcement will be shared with supporters in the coming weeks.

Rangers Football Club and its partners wish to extend our continued thanks and appreciation to all key workers. We trust that our supporters and their families continue to stay safe and healthy throughout this difficult time.

So looks like our next kit manufacturer is going to be announced imminently with Castore the rumoured choice.

The best news is that Mike Ashley looks to have finally been ousted and we can finally start benefitting fully from control of our kits.

So Castone are now confirmed. Given we are their first club I look forward to seeing the design of the kits. No generic template and they’ll be keen to make an impression.

Also announced they’ll be a significant redevelopment of the club shop at Ibrox.

Don’t expect the finer details to be released but the announcement makes reference to the club seeing a return on every top sold which is a big thing after recent years of Ashley leaching money from the club.

Castore could end up being an excellent deal for us by the sounds of it. Having the megastore at Ibrox back in our control is a massive plus more so on match days

Definite progress in this side of the business getting rid of SDI / Ashley.

In the fight vs the SPFL we've done reasonably well too, pulling the pin and rolling a hand grenade into the room. I think that has a long way to go before it plays out in full.

If we can get it right on the pitch as we are doing in the board room and off it, we're going places.
