Burnley FC Leave Umbro, Sign Kit Deal With Castore

No matter which league they’re playing in next season, Burnley FC will have a new kit supplier.

The Lancashire club announced on Wednesday, May 8, that they would be leaving kit supplier Umbro and signing a multi-year contract with British sportswear company Castore starting with the 2024-25 season.

“I’m thrilled to team up with Castore as our new Official Technical Partner in a multi-year deal,” said Burnley chairman Alan Pace. “As organisations, we have similar values, the desire to push boundaries, a passion for innovation and a mission to make athletes better. Castore’s philosophy of ‘Better Never Stops’ is perfectly aligned with our vision as a forever forward-thinking football club.

“With an esteemed portfolio of world-class athletes and brands from across the world of sport, I look forward to together, developing a powerful partnership to build our brand globally and one that our fans can enjoy.”

Burnley currently sit in 19th place in the Premier League standings with two games remaining in the 2023-24 season. As it stands, they would be one of three teams relegated to the EFL Championship next season; they are five points behind Nottingham Forest, who sit in 17th place.

Should they stay up, Burnley would be one of only two teams outfitted by Castore in the Premier League in 2024-25 — the other being Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Both Newcastle United and Aston Villa had deals with Castore for 2023-24. Newcastle confirmed in September 2023 that they’d be switching to Adidas next season, while Aston Villa are heavily rumored to be making the same switch after players raised concerns about the Castore kits absorbing too much water during matches.
