A relatively new, and diversified brand. It is interesting to get in on the ground level with them, and how this develops, especially as other teams/clubs will continue to join the platform.

Other football clubs fans have had nothing but bad things to say about them, from the quality of the merchandise to the customer service

They're shocking. Have had nothing but bad experiences with them buying Newcastle stuff. They take an age to fulfil orders. When they eventually do it's usually faulty and they have terribe customer service.

You can bet this kit release was pushed back to the 20th because of their shoddy supply chain. Kit being shown two days before the first match, missing St. Patrick's day and the team wearing the kit against France with not a single person in the crowd weraing the new jersey.

Wait until everyone sees the extortionate prices they charge for their tat too. Will be fun!

I think I'll pass on the €86 jerseys that are really poor quality. 

Very few people will be buying

Expensive rubbish seems to be the recurring theme. A real missed opportunity with O Neills imo

I doubt O'Neills would have been able to match the money that Castore are paying.

maybe not the staunch shops, but the not so staunch shops is a real possibility.

The FAI needs money so were always going to go for the most lucrative deal. I am interested to see how it will look with the new crest etc.

Unfortunately this is the reality of the situation. I heard through the grapevine that Puma made an early play with an offer that was more than the expiring umbro deal so it was being seriously considered by the powers that be in Abbotstown.

Castore subsequently came in and basically blew this offer out of the water by almost double. Given the lack of a lead sponsor and the horrific financial situation as a whole, The FAI commercially would have been foolish to turn it down.

I'll reserve judgement until I see the final product but the feedback from fans of their existing clubs isn't exactly positive.  And there is no chance I'll be paying €90 for a jersey

I understand that & financial situation is driving the decision. But sometimes going for the higher initial figure isn’t the best long term decision

Wasn’t funny the first time you posted this.

Fair play on doubling down.

I don’t remember people complaining in the 2000’s when Ireland and rangers both had Umbro as kit supplier or Adidas in the mid 90’s.

I agree, but this is a little different. Castore sponsor a few teams that would be known to us. Rangers were the first to have them that I know and took a lot of sl*gging about the quality etc. Umbro/Addias/Nike practically monopolised the kit manufacturers.
