OPRO, the manufacturer of the world’s most technically advanced mouthguard, will be the official mouthguard partner for the Barbarians v Fiji match which is taking place at Twickenham Stadium on November 16.
As the official mouthguard partner for the game, players from both squads will be fitted with an OPRO mouthguard, and OPRO branding will be included across match-day marketing materials.
The match, which will see players from all over the world pull on the famous black and white shirt of the Baa-Baas, will offer fans the first chance to see an international game of rugby played in the UK post this autumn’s World Cup.
Eddie Jones has been announced as the Barbarians coach for the fixture, so he’ll be looking to follow up a hopefully successful England World Cup performance with yet more silverware.
The last time the Barbarians and Fiji met at Twickenham back in 2013, more than 68,000 fans watched as the Baa Baas secured a 43-19 win.
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 80 teams, including, England Rugby, Australia Rugby, New Zealand Rugby and 11 Gallagher Premiership Rugby teams.
Steven Berrick, the match organiser, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with OPRO. They set the standard when it comes to athlete protection and we are excited about working with them in the run up to the match.”
Daniel Lovat, OPRO Sports Marketing Director, said: “The Barbarians are one of the world’s most famous rugby teams and we’re excited to partner up with them for what will be a showstopper of a match.
“This will be the first international match at Twickenham post World Cup and a fantastic opportunity for us to show our continued support for the game at the elite level, by providing players with the most comfortable, best fitting and reliable mouthguards out there.”
