Newcastle United have released a statement thanking outgoing kit supplier Castore for their hard work throughout its tenure.

The British manufacturer signed a multi-year deal to supply the club with its kit and day-to-day wear from the 2021/22 season replacing Puma.

It's safe to say that despite a few blunders, the supplier released several memorable kits including the most recent home strip that marked the Magpies return to the UEFA Champions League.

However, the deal with Castore is over as Adidas have stepped in to take the reigns and club to new heights in a deal worth £30million a season.

Newcastle's first-class message to outgoing Castore

The club released a statement on their new website last night.

It read: "Over the past three seasons, Castore has been a key partner during a resurgent chapter for Newcastle United.

"The sportswear brand has contributed to the trajectory of the club by providing quality clothing products, for both the men's and women's teams, along with our academy squads, and of course our supporters.

"The Castore logo has embellished bespoke kits proudly worn - both on the pitch and in the stands - during a period that will be fondly remembered by supporters.

"Highlights on the pitch include the long-awaited UEFA Champions League return and evolutionary back-to-back promotions for Newcastle United Women; Castore has walked alongside the club on every step of the journey.

"Thank you, Castore."

The Castore deal is a shell of what Adidas is offering, with the Manchester-based company's deal only worth £5m to the club.
