Preston North End began a new technical partnership at the 2023/24 season, with Castore replacing Nike. The club’s first-ever home shirt from the British brand maintained the traditional colours-white for the body and sleeves, and navy for the collar and sleeve cuffs. Offset yellow trim adorned the latter, while subtle vertical stripes designed the pristine base of the former. The overall design paid tribute to the classic Preston home shirts of the ’80s.
