OPRO has had a partnership with England Rugby since 2012 and as part of the new agreement, OPRO has been granted the rights for a further 4 years - taking in the 2019 Rugby World Cup - to produce special England Rugby branded mouthguards, as well as being the official mouthguard of England Rugby and the official supplier to the CBRE All Schools programme.
OPRO will provide mouthguards to the England senior men’s and women’s teams, England senior men’s and women’s 7s teams, England Saxons team, England Under-20s, Under-18s and Under-16s teams.
In addition, OPRO will provide thousands of self-fit mouthguards to the CBRE All Schools programme; a project developed by the RFU with the aim of increasing the number of secondary state schools playing rugby union and to encourage new players to join local clubs.
All products will be available online and through OPRO’s global network of retailers.
With over 20 years’ experience, OPRO is dedicated to bringing leading technology and safety to athletes at all levels of sport and is the official mouthguard partner of over 60 teams, including Australia Rugby, New Zealand Rugby and 11 AVIVA Premiership Rugby teams.
OPRO chairman and founder, Dr Anthony Lovat BDS, said: “We are proud and honoured to be partnered with one of the best sporting organisations out there. At OPRO, providing the most comfortable, best fitting and reliable mouthguards is our passion.
“We are also delighted to be able to show support for the CBRE All Schools programme and to be part of a project that enables more young people to take up rugby.”
