DR.VEGAN has announced a new deal with vegan football club Forest Green Rovers (FRG) through which it has become the Official Supplement Partner of the men’s, women’s and academy teams for the 2023/24 season.

FGR players will receive DR.VEGAN Informed Sport-certified supplements as well as nutrition expertise and advice from the brand’s nutritionists on everything from pre-game nutrition to post-match recovery to support performance, health and wellbeing.

The partnership will include pitch-side advertising and DR.VEGAN will also execute brand-to-hand activations for fans at matches and in and around the wider local community.

Commenting on the partnership, DR.VEGAN co-founder, Gordon Lott, says: “We are delighted to have partnered with Forest Green Rovers to support the Men’s and Women’s teams of all ages. FGR’s commitment to high performance, innovating and breaking new ground in running a professional sports team whilst remaining in harmony with the environment is something to be admired.

DR.VEGAN is the most natural supplement partner for Forest Green Rovers and vice versa

“This is an exciting time for DR.VEGAN, having recently achieved the prestigious Informed-Sport accreditation for our Bone & Muscle Support supplement, with other products following shortly. Further strengthening our nationwide presence, we are excited to continue to build out our partnerships portfolio across professional sport to support other prestigious sports teams and bodies like FGR.”

Adds FGR’s CEO, Marcus Reynolds: “As the leading ethical nutrition and supplement brand, with formulas that work and can make a real difference to our players’ performance and wellbeing, DR.VEGAN is the most natural supplement partner for Forest Green Rovers and vice versa. We are looking forward to working with DR.VEGAN’s expert nutritionists and educating our players on how best to fuel themselves to achieve their potential both on and off the pitch.”
