Thermos UK has teamed up with The RFL and the England men’s, women’s and wheelchair Rugby League teams and coaching staff for the up and coming Autumn Internationals and supplied them with the new Icon Series of insulated bottles and tumblers. The Icon Series is a professional and rugged range which has just been launched and is a perfect match for the iconic players pulling on the England shirt over the coming weeks.
Staying hydrated during training and game time is essential for any rugby player – but even more so at a professional and international level. The partnership will see Thermos donate a range of products which will keep drinks hot for 18 hours or cold for up to 24 hours keeping the players refreshed and in tip-top condition.
The Icon Series products will be in use at the various teams’ upcoming matches against Tonga, Wales and France.
Nina Jaynes Head of Marketing at Thermos, said: “We’re delighted to be supplying the England Rugby League teams, who have some of our nation’s most iconic sportspeople, with our Icon Series. We’re on a mission to make sure they are properly hydrated for up and coming test matches. In recent research we conducted, two thirds of people admitted they felt they didn’t drink enough water during the day – and that’s just not an option for athletes at the top of their game who need to stay in control of their hydration. Making sure it’s easy to grab a drink is so important, as are drinks staying at the right temperature. And of course, it’s vital that drink containers are hard-wearing and durable, just like the England Rugby League teams themselves!”
Bobby Bahadori, Head of Partnerships at England Rugby League, added: “We are thrilled to team up with Thermos for the upcoming Autumn tests. These are quality products built to withstand the demands of any rugby league player.”
