Armadillo Sports Design Limited, which recently announced the launch of its breakthrough calf and achilles protector, has confirmed it has signed a commercial agreement with the Professional Footballers Association. As a result of the deal, Armadillo and the PFA will be working closely together on promoting this exciting product.
Says Mark Sims, managing director of Armadillo: “We are delighted to have signed an agreement with the PFA. They are the body that represents the players’ interests and since we are dedicated to reducing the risk of injury on the football pitch through the provision of scientifically tested and proven protection equipment, we believe that we can work together to really help footballers of all ages and at every level.”
“We were impressed with the product from the first time we saw it,” explains Gordon Taylor OBE, chief executive of the PFA. “There is no doubt that it will help to reduce injuries to the back of the leg and enable players to protect themselves, protect their skills and stay in the game for longer. We look forward to working with the team at Armadillo to make this product a part of every footballer’s kit.”
