Cult Hero

Cult Hero (6/12)



  1. The Ticketing website for the club is an actual joke and is currently not fit for purpose in my view. The club could possibly be missing out on revenue due to the issues the fans are experiencing during ticketing for events. Bisgrove and his team should really be looking into that aspect and trying to improve the overall experience for the fans
  2. Still find it odd that Castore did not have the so called Pro version able to go from day one! Castore has very "Quietly" recently put an option on the Rangers store for personalisation your own name and players names with numbers on the strips.(Seems like Free Personalisation too, well when you look at your cart all the additional letters and number are showing as free - might be temporary though!)
  3. Bisgrove did state in a recent interview that Castore themselves have made changes in their business approach to ready themselves for another huge kit launch. They are now aligned with new manufacturers to produce much better quality produce for Rangers, the same manufacturers used by top clubs like Man City. Seems odd to me they now have the Seko and Tomket Tires on the strips this season, but no The energy check sponsor. i remember initially asking Castore awhile back regarding this and it basically was stated due to the lateness of the deals being announced was the reason for not being on the tops last season, even the pro tops. But now i am thinking maybe Bisgrove has gotten an improved deal from both companies who are wanting brand exposure on the clubs kits. I also remember asking Castore about the quality control checks on Rangers items compared to their own product ranges, my specific question was when during production are checks made and if the person doing the control checks worked directly within Castore. This was the generic line from Castore "We can confirm that all our products are quality control checked before they go onto general sale. If we have a known about an issue with a certain product then further spot checks and testing is carried out." - This was the line they came away with, no mention if someone within Castore checks the items during a production run. So with that said, it would be interesting to know how many actually shipped items have defects and you are correct that some of the stuff you see floating around on twitter seems highly suspect, i would imagine if Rangers sell over 100k of product and only around 3% have issues, i would presume Castore would say it's been successful.
  4. Hopefully Castore have learned mistakes from the first season with Rangers. Seems like they are at least trying, I am sure i remember hearing that Castore was taking some advice from other manufacturer's to improve things. I also recently read that Bisgrove and Castore are looking at opening retail units within the Stadium when fans are allowed to return to the ground.
  5. Christ taking manufacturing advice from Castore,for your own in-house manufacturing!, Does not soundlike it will be temporary.
  6. The Wolves Castore deal seems slightly odd to me Castore doing the Pro ranges they know how ro do well, obviously the pricing of these products will be high! Whilst Wolves will do the replica range in-house it seems under licence from Castore
  7. Just wondering has anyone actually asked Castore. what quality control checks are done in the manufacturing process of Rangers items. It does not look like Castore own any manufacturing facilities, just seems everything is outsourced from that point of view hence why i asked the above question. You would think someone from Castore would inspect the items at different stages of the manufacturing process. If the above was done, then i would expect you would not see as much irregularity between the same items. Basically Castore should put the same effort into its own products as they do in the Rangers items that are under the Castore Branding.
  8. Personally i think this a fantastic idea. Interesting line here Profits from the Rangers Champions Wall will be reinvested in the wider Ibrox footprint to assist in the club’s plans to truly enhance our historic stadium and the matchday experience. The company doing the Champions Wall has worked with the likes of Aresnal,Leicester City and our club partner HSV Hamburg just to name a few.
  9. I was under the impression only certain parts of the pitch was hybrid e.g penalty boxes and the rest was grass.
  10. Yes, Rangers currently lay a new pitch at the beginning of every season. I would imagine the club at this moment in time would be looking to install some-kind of hybrid pitch. (was a Hybird pitch not meant to be installed a few years ago!) I think a hybrid pitch can last for approximately 8 years. could be longer if properly maintained, Whilst i understand the initial investment would be significant, surely it would save some money in the long run.
  11. Castore seems to have linked up with our Logistics Partner Seko Logistics, well the delivery packaging of the Champions top has Seko Logistics name on it. I don't remember seeing any other item i have ordered from Rangers Store in the past have the address of Seko Logistics on it.
  12. Surely it was just to give an idea and the club will know it is incorrect. Personally i think this is a fantastic idea and good to see they are using the profits generated from this in improving the wider Ibrox footprint to assist in the club’s plans to truly enhance our historic stadium and the matchday experience.
  13. We have been with the Kindred Group since 2014, although since Bisgrove came-in it has evolved slightly Unibet on the training wear and now Unibet on our Third Domestic Strip and whilst in europe competitions too. Which is another brand under the above company who also own 32Red. I would imagine 32Red would be paying a decent amount considering they are now with the Champions and will potentially have more exposure due to being in the Champions League.
  14. Seems to be official now - https://www.Rangers.co.uk/article/Rangers-announce-multi-year-partnership-extension-with-32red/3e96tycaFQDJBQJGziSoj5 From Championship to Champions - Such a good slogan from Rangers for the 32Red deal, someone from our marketing team done well
