BL Ballers Cup
9th June 2021
iPRO Partner with BL Ballers to Provide Healthy Hydration at June Tournament
In 2019, BL Ballers hosted their first tournament in an attempt to bridge the gap between professional and non-professional footballers. The intention behind the event was to give aspiring players the chance to play amongst professionals and showcase their budding talent. In addition to its fun and competitive element, participants had the opportunity to take part in skill lessons and workshops about football careers (both on and off the pitch).
Following the success of their first tournament and postponing their 2020 tournament, BL Ballers are finally returning to Goals Leicester on Sunday 13th June 2021. The tournament will welcome 32 professional and non-professional teams from across the country who will all be under the supervision of EFL referees to ensure a fair game.
For 2021, BL Ballers have teamed up with iPRO to provide teams and their referees with a range of healthy hydration drinks and a prize package for their tournament winners. iPRO is a leading brand in healthy hydration and the official hydration partner for multiple established sporting organisations worldwide. This partnership, with the help of iPRO’s Informed Sport Certified drinks, will ensure players are drinking gold-standard products for optimised hydration during the Tournament.
As a small non-profit entity, BL Ballers will donate all proceeds from the tournament to The Common Goal Movement and invest back into the event for the enjoyment of participants.
On the partnership, BL Ballers founder, Beryly Lubala, said:
“BL Ballers are looking forward to working with a well-established brand such as iPRO. We would like to make sure our players and attendees are taken care of in terms of staying hydrated and refreshed in the hot weather. We are confident iPRO’s products can ensure this.”
iPRO Global Partnerships Manager, Lucy Darrall, adds:
“The BL Ballers tournament is a great event that focuses on development and education. We are delighted to be supporting the event to keep the players and referees hydrated. Hydration is of paramount importance, especially during the hot summer months, and iPRO’s healthy hydration drinks will ensure that participants are refreshed and aid recovery.”
