SportBU has secured a new long-term sponsorship deal with iPro Sport, leading isotonic sport drinks provider, as their Official Hydration Partner.
The partnership will see iPro Sport exclusively hydrating the Bournemouth University ‘TeamBU’ sports performance squads in addition to supporting the University’s Campus Sport Leagues and wider participation events.
Barry Squires, Business & Partnership Manager at SportBU said,
“It’s great to have a leading, gold standard provider hydrating so many of our performance teams as well as supporting us year round on many other student participation events and activities. We pride ourselves in providing the best physical and nutritional support to our student athletes so iPro Sport was the perfect partner for us”.
SportBU is the latest partner to join the iPro Sport family of sporting partners, whose already impressive partnership portfolio includes a host of professional football and rugby clubs, world class sporting organisations including Football Association of Ireland, Gloucester Rugby, England Netball, and British Basketball Federation just to name a few.
iPro Sport is Informed Sport, Halal Certified, trusted by the British Army and the only hydration sports drink naturally sweetened with Stevia, a Paraguayan sweet leaf plant – an all-natural product which has no calorific value.
Speaking about the partnership and iPro Sport’s commitment to further support university sport, Sophie Christy, Commercial Director for iPro Sport, said:
“We take our commitment to physical activity very seriously ensuring that student athletes at all levels have the opportunity to access the healthiest hydration products available during training, match preparation, competition and recovery.
This is a very exciting time for the iPro Sport brand and we are delighted to be working with such an innovative and complimentary partner – ‘SportBU’, who from the get go have been proactive in creating the ideal platform for us to engage with the broader student population and communicate the mental and physical benefits of our product not only surrounding physical activity but in those all important study periods throughout the academic year.”
Having already attended Fresher’s Week, engaging students in product education and sampling activities, iPro Sport will be teaming up with SportBU this week in the launch of #TEAMTAKEOVER on BUCS Wednesday’s! The campaign will launch on Wednesday 11th October with Volleyball set to be the first ever club to experience #TEAMTAKEOVER, proudly hydrated by iPro Sport.
