USA Rugby is proud to announce a renewed partnership with Wintergreen® as the continued Official Topical Analgesic Supplier to USA Rugby Members and National Teams. Wintergreen® has been used and trusted by the USA Eagles since first partnering in 2019.

Wintergreen® provides a line of products developed for athletes in consultation with sports therapy professionals. Unlike almost every other topical analgesic, Wintergreen® offers a comprehensive range of products including gels, creams, sprays and soaks that are formulated with therapeutic natural active ingredients to prepare the body for all stages of training.

In addition to its partnership with USA Rugby, Wintergreen® has been the brand of choice for massage therapists, athletic trainers and physiotherapists who work with other elite rugby programs worldwide, including: South African National Rugby Union, New Zealand National Rugby Union and Australian National Rugby Union.

USA Rugby and Wintergreen® are also excited to launch the Wintergreen® Recovery Challenge, an opportunity for a select group of USA Rugby Members across all levels to trial the newest Wintergreen® recovery products and compare the improvements with their current recovery methods.

USA Rugby General Manager of Commercial and Events, Brandy Medran said of the renewed collaboration, “We are incredibly excited to continue our great partnership with Wintergreen® and take it to another level with new opportunities. As a membership organization of nearly 100,000 registered players, coaches and administrators, it is our goal to collaborate with partners such as Wintergreen® to better the experience on the rugby pitch. Wintergreen® has been a great performance and player welfare resource with our USA National Teams, so we are thrilled to share that value with the USA Rugby Members, through both exclusive offers and The Wintergreen® Recovery Challenge. Through this challenge, we have a chance to show the great benefits of Wintergreen® with the storytelling of members themselves.”

“Wintergreen® is proud to be associated with USA Rugby,” said Founder and Managing Director of Wintergreen® Sport Justin Clohessy. “Helping rugby players stay on the playing field is an important mission for Wintergreen®. With USA Rugby’s help, we hope to demonstrate the efficacy of our recovery product line through the Wintergreen® Recovery Challenge,” said Clohessy.

As part of the Wintergreen® Recovery Challenge, selected participants will be supplied free Wintergreen recovery products to use as instructed during their rugby training and competition. Following a 14-day period, participants will have the opportunity to share their experience and improved outcomes.

Similar to previous years, registered USA Rugby Members will continue receiving exclusive access to discounted Wintergreen products throughout the entire rugby season. To learn more about Wintergreen® and their latest product offerings, visit
