Sealy UK is kicking off its second year of sponsorship with the Wigan Warriors with a state-of-the-art sleep aid that will help the Rugby League club’s players achieve restful sleep whilst travelling to Australia on their upcoming three-match New South Wales tour.

The Sealy TravelPro is a unique joint creation between the bed manufacturer’s New Product Innovation (NPI) team and Wigan Warriors' director of performance, Mark Bitcon.

As the Wigan Warriors' official sleep partner since 2017, Sealy UK has ensured the TravelPro features the latest sleep technology and design, including unique Intense fibres, which remove negative static charges from personal electronic device, and a detachable extra lumbar support pad to offer the best lower spine support.

Holly Housby, Marketing controller at Sealy UK, says: “This is a truly fantastic joint creation from the Wigan Warriors and Sealy. We’re absolutely delighted with the result and we’ve been able to incorporate some of the most advanced sleep technology into a portable, made-to-measure seat cover that can be used again and again. It truly is a unique piece of kit that will hopefully give the players an advantage on the pitch.”

Mark Bitcon adds: “With rest and recovery being such an important factor when it comes to player performance, the TravelPro is going to be invaluable on the upcoming long-haul flight. History is set to be created as this is the first Super League game to be played outside of Europe, so we need the players in peak physical condition to make this a game to remember. The Sealy team really has created something which has exceeded our expectations.”
