Wigan Warriors are delighted to announce a new partnership with friendly bacteria brand, Yakult for the 2024 & 2025 Seasons.

The two-year partnership will see the Club provide both their Men’s and Women’s first team with a daily Yakult to help their preparations for their respective 2024 Betfred Super League seasons.

Yakult has been investigating gut bacteria for over 85 years. They believe that happiness and wellbeing start in the gut and that physical, emotional and mental wellbeing are interconnected. Simply enjoying a daily bottle of Yakult is an easy and delicious way to support a balanced lifestyle.

“We’re thrilled to support the Wigan Warrior teams in their pursuit of success this season through the power of gut health. Here’s to a great run for the Men’s and Women’s teams!”

Warriors’ Head of Nutrition, Darren Marsh said: ”Having Yakult on board is fantastic. We’re keen to get our players thinking more about how they can support their gut health and immunity. The focus on gut health is key for athletic performance, and Yakult’s expertise in this area will surely elevate our players’ wellbeing, fostering success on and off the field.

Rugby Operations Manager, Tom Fitzpatrick added: “It is always great to grow the family of companies that support our athletes through nutrition. Gut health, in particular, is an area that we have been keen to understand more about for a while. There is no better partner to have on board with this than Yakult.”
