Castore, the premium UK sportswear producer and retailer, is experiencing great success in Europe and has ambitious plans for further expansion in the region. The company has achieved this through securing major kit deals in football and motor racing, solidifying its presence in the European market.

To support its growth in Europe, Castore has strategically expanded its physical retail portfolio in key cities such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, and Dublin. In the next 12 months, the brand aims to open more mainline stores across Europe, ensuring that their premium sportswear is accessible to a wider customer base.

The company’s success in securing major kit deals with prestigious European teams, including Feyenoord Rotterdam, Athletic Club Bilbao, FC Utrecht, FC Twente, and the Football Association of Ireland, has played a significant role in establishing Castore in the European market. Additionally, Castore’s partnership with Oracle Red Bull Racing in the world of motor racing has further contributed to brand recognition in the Netherlands.

To facilitate its expansion in Europe, Castore has opened a distribution center in Rotterdam. Strategically located near two strong industrial clusters, this facility is equipped to handle the company’s logistics needs for various sales channels, including wholesale, retail, e-commerce, and gift-of-kit.

In addition to its own stores, Castore has established key wholesale partnerships with popular retailers such as Zalando, Intersport, Sprinter, Voetbalshop, Voetbal direct, and 11Teamsport. These partnerships have significantly increased Castore’s presence and availability throughout Europe.

Co-founder of Castore, Tom Beahon, expressed his pride in the company’s European expansion and its achievements thus far. He emphasized the brand’s ambition to become the leading premium sports brand globally and its determination to establish itself as a key player in the European market.

With its early success and ambitious plans for expansion, Castore is quickly becoming a dominant force in the European sportswear industry. The brand’s commitment to quality, premium products, and strategic partnerships has already caught the attention of consumers, and with continued growth, Castore is poised to make an even greater impact in the coming years.
