Lancashire sports nutrition brand in Blackburn Rovers tie-up
Blackburn Rovers have struck a new deal with sports nutrition firm Science in Sport (SiS).
The firm, which develops, manufactures and markets products for professional athletes and sports enthusiasts, is now the League One side’s official nutrition partner.
Science in Sport was founded in 1992 near Rovers’ Brockhall Village training centre.
Since then, the company has worked with a number of the world’s top athletes, including Olympic cyclist turned racing driver Sir Chris Hoy.
Andrew Ashworth, SiS’ head of football, said: “Science in Sport are delighted to have signed with Rovers as official nutrition partner.
“We understand the time and dedication that an athlete must give and we aim to facilitate that by providing world class knowledge, superior sports nutrition and helping the team become the best they can be.”
He continued: “Science in Sport and Blackburn Rovers have worked closely together since the early days of our business and there is a real historical relationship there. We’re excited about this official relationship and look forward helping the club achieve their potential.”
Blackburn Rovers’ head of athletic performance, Chris Rush, commented: “We’re pleased to do the deal as SiS are a local company who have supplied nutritional products to us for a long time now.
“It’s a favourable agreement for all parties - the club and SiS - and we’re all delighted to set up this partnership.”
