QPR players have already been wearing the product for training and during recovery, as have the Academy, QPR‘s next generation of footballers.
The QPR ladies team will also be sponsored by the Supacore brand when the women’s range is released later this month.

Supacore is all about injury prevention and recovery. How can we reduce the risk of injury for a player and how can we get them back on the pitch as quickly as possible” Michel Abeysekera.
