Goalkeeping specialist, Reusch are pleased to announce that they have agreed a sponsorship deal with Robert Green of Queens Park Rangers and England to exclusively wear their gloves for the next two years. Green will wear the CF Pro M1 Special gloves part of the Core Function Range.
Reusch who produced the World’s first ever goalkeeper glove with a latex palm back in 1973 have worked closely with top International goalkeepers over the last 39 years to develop a range of specialist products designed to meet the needs of goalkeepers playing at all levels. Rob Green joins a list of famous keepers who have worn Reusch gloves in the English Premiership in recent years such as David Seaman, Peter Schmeichel and Petr Cech and a current group of International goalkeepers including Julio Cesar of Brazil, Fernando Muslera of Uruguay and Salvatore Sirigu of Italy.
Robert Green, 32 years old, has made 442 Senior Appearances for two clubs – Norwich City and West Ham United, and has been capped 12 times for England. Rob made his league debut for Norwich City in April 1999, keeping a clean sheet and in the Summer of 2012, Rob moved across London to join Premiership club Queens Park Rangers and is likely to make his home debut against Swansea City in the first game of the new Premiership season this Saturday 18th August 2012.
Bob Fidler, Reusch UK Country Manager, said of the deal: We at Reusch are delighted to welcome Rob to the group of goalkeepers we sponsor across the world and in particular those in the U.K. who are playing across all the divisions in England, Scotland and Wales. Rob has proved throughout his career to be a consistent performer at the top level of the game and will no doubt prove to be a great inspiration to some of the younger keepers we sponsor who are just starting out in their careers.
Robert Green, said of the deal: I am very pleased to be joining a brand with the heritage of Reusch and very much look forward to working with the brand and wearing their gloves over the course of the forthcoming season and beyond. I have already worn the gloves in pre-season games and found the quality to be excellent.
As well as sponsoring Professional players, Reusch have recently sponsored a number of other events/organisations which they hope will put something back in to goalkeeping and help keepers of all ages playing at all levels of the game. The Goalkeeper Coaches Association set up to help coach goalkeeper coaches, The Goalkeeping Conference aimed at getting goalkeeper coaches together to share ideas and The Non League Paper Goalkeeper of the Year Awards. The latest deal was to become the goalkeeping partner of the North West Counties Football League and sponsor their monthly and annual goalkeeper awards.
