Saints have partnered with iPro Sport which will see them become our official 'Hydration Partner’ until the end of the 2021 season.
iPro Sport utilises Stevia – a natural sweetener with ZERO calories – providing you with a healthy hydration drink containing absolutely no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners. With its special formula of added vitamins, electrolytes and minerals available in four great flavours, iPro Sport hits the mark to help you go the distance.
iPro Sport is made using natural spring water which is free of most contaminants typically found in drinking water. The complex carbohydrates used in iPro Sport are sourced from maltrodextrin and stevia. Maltrodextrin is a good quality carbohydrate sourced from potato starch. Stevia is a natural herb native to South America and has been used as a natural sweetener for centuries. This means you can replenish energy stores and essential minerals without the added sugar.
Saints Supporters will notice iPro Sport on the LED & advertising boards at the Totally Wicked Stadium as well as our team’s cooler boxes which will be on display around the dugout area at every game. Saints TV will also feature their branding during all match highlights packages.
And IPro’s hydration products were used for the first time in Saints’ Coral Challenge Cup semi-final victory over Halifax last weekend and Head of Strength & Conditioning, Matt Daniels is delighted with the product.
‘This is a deal I’ve been keen to do for some time as they are the best in the marketplace. iPro Sport will provide us with a range of quality hydration products that will help our players recover quickly during games and training. The product includes vital vitamins, electrolytes and minerals and is a healthier alternative to other drinks on the market. We always want to find an edge to our performance and this can only drive our work towards that goal.”
Dave Hutchinson, Saints General Manager is equally pleased to welcome iPro Sport to the Club.
“Our priority within the commercial department is to help team performance and this agreement will help us achieve that until the end of 2021. Supporters can also benefit from their product range as we plan to stock it in our Stadium kiosks.
“With the increases in sugar tax on some soft drinks, we are delighted to be able to provide this low sugar alternative for our supporters in four different flavours and alongside our recycling initiatives here at Saints, we are looking forward to supporting iPro Sport with their own push to utilise a high-percentage of recycled plastic when manufacturing their own bottles.”
iPro Sport Commercial Director, Sophie Christy said: “Our involvement in sport worldwide is centred around collaborating with partners to develop the sporting pathway from grassroots participation to elite competition. We are passionate about promoting healthier choices when it comes to hydration and this exciting new partnership with St.Helens R.F.C. will enable us to work together and further promote the health benefits of the iPro range of drinks to fans on a match day.
“St.Helens R.F.C. is a prestigious club with renowned heritage who share our own core values with their forward-thinking approach to health, wellbeing, community engagement and sustainability – which makes this a perfect partnership. iPro Sport are extremely proud to be teaming up with Saints for the remainder of the 2019 season and beyond and we wish the club all the success on and off the pitch!”
