Tue 02 August 2022, 10:00|Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur is pleased to announce Science in Sport (SiS) as the Club’s first Official Performance Solutions Partner, working closely with the Nutrition and Sports Science teams for the next four seasons.
SiS have already played a part in shaping the Men’s First Team’s preparation for the upcoming campaign, with its range of nutritional products available to players throughout the pre-season period.
Through the partnership, the Club will have access to a bespoke Performance Solutions Framework, custom designed from leading professionals at SiS to shape the Club’s Nutrition strategy. This includes frequent dialogue with a High-Performance Advisory Board with exclusive access to specific performance knowledge and external quality assurance.
Included on the Board is Prof. James Morton, Director of Performance Solutions at SiS, who said: “Science in Sport are committed to fuelling the world’s best athletes and sports teams with world leading science and innovation. With our Performance Solutions programme, we tailor our research, innovation, and world class knowledge to deliver a true competitive advantage. We are delighted to partner with Tottenham Hotspur, a sports team who share the same pioneering values and vision.”
The Club will also employ dedicated staff to work exclusively with SiS, including a PHD student to examine, input and help develop the programme. Led by the Club’s Lead Nutritionist, Emma Tester, this will involve frequent performance research trials and early-stage innovation studies.
Speaking about the partnership, Emma said: “At Tottenham Hotspur we aspire to be the world’s best in performance nutrition. Since the start of pre-season, we have been working closely with James Morton and the team at SiS to get the products implemented across the squad and begin planning our wider nutritional strategy. Having access and support from industry-leading experts is of huge benefit to us. We have had great feedback from the players on the range of products available to them and we look forward to developing bespoke products to truly personalise their nutrition programme.”
Exclusive content about the partnership will be available on SPURSPLAY, the Club’s new home of live and on-demand video content, including interviews and behind the scenes access to the Performance Framework being implemented. SiS-branded coolers and bottles will also regularly be seen pitchside on matchdays and during training sessions.
