England Cricket and Castore unveil a fresh take on a classic kit
The long-term partnership between the ECB and premium sportswear brand Castore continues with the latest launch of the England Cricket Test Collection. Castore offers a fresh take on a classic kit which is designed with performance in mind.
Key players and leadership groups across the men’s and women’s teams collaborated with Castore to create a high-performance Test kit that is specific to the needs of an elite-level cricketer. Players across the men’s and women’s sides were an integral part of the design process, helping designers develop a high-quality product that elevates performance on-field.
For the first time ever, England supporters will be able to purchase a replica of the Pro Short Sleeve Test polo shirt that is worn by players on the pitch, with women’s fit also available to purchase.
Instead of the traditional off-white that supporters are used to seeing, the test shirt sports a bright white with blue piping detail. The new kit will add a flash of colour to the movement of players during test matches.
Castore have engineered their innovative technology into the shirts which has previously been seen in their football kit designs. The breathable properties of the jacquard wicking fabric to assist with ventilation which keeps athletes cool and focused throughout their matches.
Key products in the range include the Pro Short Sleeve Polo that is a modern update of a classic shirt and the official England Cricket Test Match Sweatshirt that has been crafted to prioritise movement, comfort and warmth.
