DR.VEGAN® Official Supplement Partner of Forest Green Rovers

17 August 2023.

We are proud to announce that we are Official Supplement Partner of Forest Green Rovers (FGR), described by FIFA as 'the world's greenest football club'.

As the world's most sustainable supplement brand, DR.VEGAN® will become the Official Supplement Partner of the Men’s, Women’s and academy teams for the 2023/24 season. The partnership will see FGR’s players receive DR.VEGAN’s Informed-Sport certified supplements, including Bone & Muscle Support, to support their performance, health and wellbeing both on and off the pitch.

Who are Forest Green Rovers

Based in Gloucestershire, Forest Green Rovers is a professional football club in EFL League Two. Aligning seamlessly with DR.VEGAN’s commitment to sustainability and the environment, FGR was recognised by the United Nations as the world’s first carbon-neutral football club, and named by Sky Sports as the English Football League's 'Most Environmentally Friendly' club

Forest Green Rovers Men's 1st Team 

A proud vegan club, FGR are leaders in promoting the health benefits of a plant-based diet to athletes and fans alike, whilst also remaining welcoming and inclusive of players and fans of all diets. This aligns with DR.VEGAN’s emphasis on inclusivity, looking to inspire and educate people of all diets to achieve their health goals. DR.VEGAN® provides award-winning and exclusively vegan, plant-based supplements, yet 90% of DR.VEGAN® customers are not vegan - customers choose DR.VEGAN® supplements because they work, and they're better for them and the planet. 

How is DR.VEGAN® helping FGR?

DR.VEGAN® will be providing its Informed Sport certified supplements to the FGR Mens, Womens and academy teams. Initially this will be the DR.VEGAN® Bone & Muscle Support formula that will support the recovery of FGR players, and soon followed by UltraEnergy to enhance focus and performance naturally.  

Professional athletes in any sport are not allowed to take any food supplements unless they have been independently batch tested by Informed Sport. Informed Sport is a global certification programme that assures athletes, clubs, authorities and fans that products carrying the Informed Sport mark have been tested for prohibited substances and are manufactured to the highest quality. 

In addition, the DR.VEGAN® will work with the club to bring nutrition expertise and advice from the brand’s nutritionists on everything from pre-game nutrition to post-match recovery. The partnership will include pitch-side advertising of DR.VEGAN® who will also execute brand-to-hand activations for FGR and visiting fans at games, and in and around the wider local community.

Commenting on the partnership, Graham Eastgate, First Team Strength & Conditioning Coach at FGR, says: "From experience, we know that DR.VEGAN® is a company that produces the highest quality plant-based supplements. Together, we decided that UltraEnergy and Bone & Muscle Support are two products we wanted to provide to the players at FGR".

Forest Green Rovers CEO, Marcus Reynolds, commented: “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.”

Gordon Lott, DR.VEGAN® CEO, 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 whilst remaining in harmony with the environment matches our own values. This is a really exciting time for DR.VEGAN®, having recently achieved the prestigious Informed Sport accreditation for our Bone & Muscle Support supplement, with other products following shortly. We are excited to continue to build out our partnerships portfolio across professional sport to support other prestigious sports teams and bodies like FGR.”
