Hydration Experts iPRO Sport join forces with the RNRU

With just 3 days to go until the 101st Match between the Army and Navy Rugby Unions at a sold-out Twickenham Stadium, the home of England Rugby, the Royal Navy Rugby Union have joined forces with hydration experts, iPro Sport.

The annual showdown marks the culmination of the Inter Service Championship, a battle between the Army and Navy for the prestigious Babcock Trophy and as Official Hydration Partners, iPro Sport will be on hand to keep the teams rehydrated!
iPro Sport will continue to work closely with the Royal Navy Rugby Union to ensure that their players are receiving the very best in hydration to aid optimum performance during competitions, in their all-important training sessions and off the field in their day to day roles within the military.

Sophie Christy, Commercial Director of iPro Sport, said

“We are thrilled to be working in close partnership with the Royal Navy Rugby Union. Our shared values of integrity, commitment, respect and loyalty will underpin our declaration of long-term support to the players and training team. We wish the team the very best of luck in their match against the Army on Saturday!”

Mike Burningham, Director of Marketing for the Royal Navy Rugby Union, said

“Everyone involved in Navy Rugby is working hard to achieve the best outcome for the team. The partnership we have forged with iPro Sport will ensure the representative teams of the Royal Navy Rugby Union have the best possible hydration product on the market to optimise their preparations.”

The annual matches between the Army and the Royal Navy will take place this Saturday 5th May, starting with the Veterans, the Army Masters and the Royal Navy Mariners, and the Army and Royal Navy Women's matches both kicking off at 1030 at Kneller Hall.  The first match of the day at Twickenham is the UK Armed Forces U23 team v the combined Oxford and Cambridge Universities team before the highlight of the day, when the Army and Royal Navy Senior teams step onto the pitch at 1500.  Tickets for the stadium have sold out but you can see the action live on Forces TV and also on Sky (channel to be announced).
