After signing an expert medical partnership agreement and initiating a study on the Croatian national futsal team, the Croatian Football Federation (CFF) and JGL have continued working together on an expert study on the sports performance of the national teams and Aqua Maris as part of the U-21 team’s preparations for the European Championship.
“High-performance sport is taxing on the body, and often the smallest things make all the difference when it comes to results. The need for an expert and scientific approach to identifying and developing these areas is becoming increasingly important, and we are encouraged by the promising results of the phase I study,” said Mislav Vučić, JGL’s CEO.
The partnership between the CFF and JGL began ahead of the World Cup in Qatar. The study was initiated in April 2023; its first subjects were the Croatian futsal team, and it will now be expanded to include the youth national football team, the “Blazers” (“Vatreni”). The national team’s physician Boban Dangubić, MD and JGL’s representatives relayed the details of the study to the national team, who are currently in the town of Medulin, preparing for the upcoming U-21 European Championship in Romania and Georgia.
“We are fortunate to be able to work with JGL on this study exploring a natural approach to improving performance, and support a well-known, original Croatian product like Aqua Maris together with our players and medical staff,” said Tomislav Vlahović, CFF’s Medical Director.
