Chesterfield FC have announced a link-up with iPro Sport, who have become the official supplier of isotonic drinks to the club.
The partnership has been agreed with distribution firm Deckers, who are the main distributors for iPro Sport in Great Britain & Ireland.
Andy Waller, Deckers’ managing director - trading, explained the benefits of using iPro Sport. He said: “iPro is a 21st century isotonic sports drink and it’s got two main ingredients that are massively important to people. It’s got a sweetener in it called stevia, which is actually an extract from a Paraguayan plant that has no calorific value. It lowers blood sugar level and it aids the formation of calcium.
“The other thing that is unique about iPro is the vitamin C content. No other hydration drink has vitamin C in it, and iPro has 200% of a person’s requirement in every bottle, meaning iPro fits the bill for athletes.
“The first team are currently using the product, and were using it before we even sat down to do a formal sponsorship deal. The nutrition team here looked at the product, it ticked all the right boxes and they’ve been using it here for several weeks now.”
Chesterfield’s sales & marketing manager Kevin Fitzgerald said: “It is testament to the hard work everyone is doing off the field at Chesterfield Football Club that we have again attracted a high-profile commercial partner like iPro Sport. I look forward to working closely with Andy and his team over the coming months."
