OPRO chairman and founder, Dr Anthony Lovat BDS, said: “As Canada’s representative in the world governing body for Canadian Football, Football Canada works alongside the biggest organizations in the sport, including the NFL and the Canadian Football League, so it’s a really exciting partnership for us.”
Shannon Donovan, Executive Director of Football Canada commented: “At Football Canada we are always looking for ways to protect our athletes and improve the game of football. This partnership with OPRO mouth guards is another opportunity for us to give access to protection not only for our national teams’ players; but to all of our members across the country.”
