Australia’s own sports compression company, 2XU, will help North Melbourne players gain a competitive edge in performance and recovery following the AFL clubs latest deal.
As the global leader in sports compression and high-performance sports apparel, 2XU will now supply compression garments for players until at least the end of 2020.
North Melbourne players will train and recover in the world’s most advanced sports compression gear, with 2XU partnering with the club.
The Australian brand has grown on a global scale since its inception in 2005 and North head of high-performance, Alex Moore, said the club is excited to be using 2XU technology.
“In the AFL, players need to be performing at an optimum level and that means having the best available recovery protocols and resources available,” Moore said.
“That’s why we are excited to have 2XU to assist us and help us reach our potential on a daily basis.
“Not only will our players use 2XU to recover, particularly on flights to and from interstate after games, but they will also train in 2XU gear.”
2XU compression is independently proven by the Australian Institute of Sport and other world-leading research teams to deliver physiological benefits including 5% increased power, 18% increased blood flow, 19% reduced muscle movement and 47% reduced muscle soreness.
2XU’s General Manager of Global Custom & ANZ Wholesale, Ben Smith, is delighted to see North Melbourne join 2XU’s extensive list of high-performance sports teams who wear and trust the Australian premium sports compression brand.
“2XU has a long and proud history providing the globe’s most advanced compression garments to the best teams in world sport.
“To have the North Melbourne Football Club join the 2XU family is another great milestone for us and we look forward to supporting the players and greater Kangaroos community throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons,” he said.
