Harlequins has renewed its longstanding partnership with OPRO, which sees the Hertfordshire based company continue as the Official Mouthguard for the club for a further three years.
This deal ensures Harlequins continue to enjoy the assurance of wearing OPRO’s internationally renowned, custom-made mouthguards for all players. This includes continued support of Harlequins Women through the next phase of the RFU’s top tier Premier 15’s competition.
The partnership brings with it the introduction of the next generation of smart mouthguards, OPRO+, embedded with PROTECHT’s state of the art sensor technology, which accurately identifies and reports all head impacts received by players in training or competitive matches. This ground-breaking initiative will tailor training in a progressive way to slowly move towards match demands, enabling players to safely simulate the loads and intensity of collisions.
OPRO are dedicated to bringing leading technology and safety to athletes at all levels of sport and are the official mouthguard partner of over 85 sporting teams and associations, including England Rugby, Rugby Australia, New Zealand Rugby, and 11 Gallagher Premiership clubs. They have twice received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, in recognition of their ground-breaking work in improving children’s’ and athletes’ protection.
OPRO Sports Marketing Director, Daniel Lovat, said: “Harlequins is an iconic team and we are proud to have supported the club for the last 15 years. We are delighted to have renewed our partnership and are really looking forward to supporting the Women’s team in the Premier 15s competition. Innovation and protection are at the forefront of what we do and it’s fantastic we’ll also be able to support the club and the welfare of the players through the PROTECHT and OPRO+ program.”
