Procter & Gamble’s (P&G) Microban 24 has been named the Official Sanitising Spray of the NFL to bring surface protection to locker rooms across the US.
Microban 24 is supplying NFL teams with sanitising products, which keep killing bacteria on high-touch hard surfaces for up to 24 hours. The brand is also teaming up with ‘NFL protectors’ on and off the field to extend that protection to local youth football teams
The product, also approved by Health Canada in February 2021, is available in three different forms: a sanitising spray, a multi-purpose cleaner, and a bathroom cleaner in both Fresh Scent and Citrus Scent.
“With players, coaches, staff and family members coming and going from both NFL and youth football team events and locker rooms, it’s important to shield those places from the growth and spread of bacteria,” said Martin Hettich, senior vice-president of North America Home Care at P&G.
“Microban 24 is excited to team up with the NFL, Thomas [Davis Sr, former Carolina Panthers linebacker] and the Carolina Panthers Challenger Flag Football league to provide 24-hour bacteria protection wherever they need it.”
Riley Fields, director of community relations for the Carolina Panthers, commented: “We are grateful for Microban 24’s generous support of both the Panthers Challenger Flag Football League and Mecklenburg County recreation centres.
“The Challenger programme makes an amazing impact on the development of physical mobility, social skills and confidence levels for kids and young adults with special needs. These donations help continue those efforts while also helping create sanitised environments for the participants.”
Thomas Davis Sr and Microban 24 surprised the team with a guest appearance at practice, which included Davis spending time with the players and announcing a $10,000 donation (€8,800) to the programme. Additionally, Microban 24 has donated a year’s worth of product to the local Challenger Flag Football Programme.
