OPROGROUP to protect AFL England



AFL England have today teamed up with The OPROGROUP as their official mouthguard provider for the next 3 years. 2017 will see the GB sides fly out to Melbourne for 18 days while they compete with the World’s best amateur Australian Rules footballers and protecting the GB teams will be OPRO, widely considered the best mouthguards in the world.

AFL England Head of Performance and GB Team Manager, Jason Hill, had this to say on the partnership “We are over the moon to bring the OPROGROUP into the AFL England Family. We all know that Australian Rules Football is a rough sport and the benefits of wearing a proper fitting mouthguard are huge. We worked with OPROGROUP at the European Championships in 2016 and we extremely impressed with the quality, fit and overall service we received from OPRO therefore when the opportunity arose to work with their team going forward we jumped at the chance. I would urge all teams across England to get in touch with OPRO as they truly are the experts in mouthguard protection. Thank you to Charlie Eales and Daniel Lovat for all their hard work bringing this to fruition”

Founder of the OPROGROUP, Dr Anthony Lovat BDS., also commented, “We are absolutely delighted to partner with Great Britain’s Aussie Rules Football teams. As a dental surgeon, my team and I are passionate in our commitment to developing and providing the very best fitting mouthguards available. With over 20 years’ experience in the development of mouthguard technology, the continued professional recognition of the quality of our mouthguards is a fantastic achievement for the OPROGROUP.”

We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship for both AFL England and The OPROGROUP.
