WGPA OPRO Mouthguard Launch

The WGPA today announced the launch of a new licensed mouthguard, in the latest extension of a partnership with world-leading manufacturer OPRO. The OPRO Power-Fit model, which is the pinnacle of Self-Fit technology, will carry WGPA branding and be available online and instore through Intersport Elverys.

Each one is handmade and the combination of the patented Power-Cage and Power-Fit mouthguard create the best-fitting, most highly retentive mouthguard. Years of research and development have gone into the creation of this innovative product which provides unparalleled fit and comes with an 12 Month Dental Warranty worth €20,000.

OPRO has been a partner of the WGPA since the start of 2017, when it became mandatory for all Ladies Football players to wear a mouthguard at training and in games. OPRO supply all members of the WGPA who play Ladies Football with a mouthguard, ensuring enhanced player welfare and a safer playing environment, reducing the incidence and severity of sports-related dental injuries.

Ladies Football stars Saoirse Noonan (Cork) and Neamh Woods (Tyrone) were present at the launch of the new mouthguard in Intersport Elverys flagship store on Henry Street in Dublin. Tyrone captain Woods commented “It’s great there is now a premium mouthguard product available to purchase which directly supports female players and it’s further recognition of their commitment. They are really comfortable and feel like they’re providing maximum protection.”

David Allen, CEO of the OPRO GROUP, added “We’re delighted to launch the WGPA licensed Power-Fit mouthguard, which further extends our commitment to helping Ladies Football and Gaelic Football across all levels. OPRO as a business is founded on a desire to protect athletes and encourage people to participate and this collaboration with WGPA, we believe, will inspire Women and Girls at all levels to increase participation in the sport whilst wearing the best fitting mouthguard.”

Anne-Marie Hanley, Senior Marketing Manager at Intersport Elverys added “As retail partner to the WGPA, we’re delighted to support key supplier OPRO on this initiative to distribute their new OPRO Power-Fit model mouthguard. All gaelic players must wear a mouthguard and this new concept from OPRO and the WGPA will result in more female players feeling comfortable in the fact that their dental health is protected. This will hopefully have a positive knock-on effect of more younger girls playing football. “

The OPRO Power-Fit model will carry WGPA branding and is available in selected stores and from Elverys.ie. OPRO is a well-established supporter of Gaelic Games as an official partner of GAA / GPA. Buy your WGPA mouthguard in-store at Intersport Elverys on online HERE.
