Equipped by Nike until the end of the 2021-2022 season, Sevilla FC should not renew their contract in order to join the Castore brand, which continues to be aggressive on the European football market.
After his sensational entry into professional sport by sponsoring tennis player Andy Murray, the British equipment manufacturer took on football, in particular trying to approach Lazio Rome or Naples before officially announcing a historic partnership with Wolverhampton last May. This time, the Mersey brand is targeting Spain and more specifically Andalusia according to sources from the Spanish newspaper 2PlayBook.
After signing a contract with Nike in 2018 to replace New Balance, Sevilla FC have agreed with the comma mark to extend last season by one year, thus binding the two entities until the end of the season. 2021-2022. So that Jules Koundé and his partners put forward the famous comma on their tunics, the American equipment manufacturer offers 2.3 million euros per year to the Andalusian club, all accompanied by performance bonuses.
Regarding Castore, the details and the duration of the contract are still unknown for the moment but according to the first reports, it is not astronomical figures which would have convinced the Sevillians but rather of the commercial strategy which would approach that already presented to the Wolves. Castore would like to expand the product range of the club that won the C3 6 times by offering tailor-made items that go beyond the scope of football. Many lifestyle-oriented collections could thus emerge.
Even if everything suggests that Castore will make his debut in La Liga for the 2022-2023 season, Sevilla FC will have to be patient and will still be equipped by Nike at the start of the school year. The comma mark should also soon unveil the jerseys that the residents of the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium will wear for the 2021-2022 campaign.
