About Surge Pre-Match Gel
The ideal pre-match solution, Surge gel was developed with Manchester United to provide the body with what it needs to prepare for a match.
Why do I need this?
Research has shown that academy footballers are under-fuelled by on average 200g of carbohydrate before each match, meaning they risk running out of energy in the last 20 minutes.
Razor sharp focus helps players to make quick decisions and avoid costly mistakes. Caffeine is used by professional footballers to help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
The Surge pre-match energy gel is designed to top up energy levels and reduce the perception of fatigue before you set foot on the pitch for a match.
What are the benefits?
Winning your first 50-50 tackle or scoring an early goal could set you and your team on the way to victory.
The Surge pre-match energy gel contains carbohydrate, caffeine, and vitamins B6, B9 and B12 which will provide you with a pre-match energy boost and help to reduce the perception of fatigue. So you're switched on and raring to go at kick-off.
The gel also contains Beta Alanine, a commonly used supplement among team sport athletes. It can reduce tiredness in muscles during intense periods of a match.
When do I use it?
Consume the gel 30 minutes before a match to allow the caffeine levels to peak in the blood, and you'll be primed and ready to win that first tackle.
The Surge pre-match energy gel can also be consumed with GO Hydro to provide a combination of energy, caffeine, fluid and electrolytes.

What is Beta Alanine?
Beta Alanine is a naturally occurring, non-essential beta amino acid. Beta Alanine supplementation can help increase muscle carnosine stores in the muscle. Beta Alanine is a commonly used supplement among sports that require periods of high-intensity exercise, strength and power e.g. football. A side effect of Beta Alanine is paraesthesia (a light tingling often in the hands).
What is citrulline malate?
Citrulline is an amino acid which may delay the onset of fatigue during intense exercise.
