    The Importance of Protective Football Gear

    Football is a very physical sport that involves a lot of tackles and collisions. This means that you can injure yourself if you do not take the proper safety precautions. Having the correct protective football equipment and always using it during gameplay and training is extremely important for keeping yourself and other players safe.

    Make sure that you and your football team are properly outfitted with all the recommended safety gear, including helmets, pads, guards, and cleats. You can find everything that you need in MVP’s online football shop. We carry a wide range of products designed to provide protection to football players of all kinds. 

    The Right Protective Football Gear for Me

    Looking for the right protective football gear for you and your team? Make sure you have everything on the checklist below. Ensure that all protective gear is properly fitted to you for the best results.


    A helmet is the single most essential piece of protective equipment a football player can have. Since football is a contact sport, players need to be very cautious about head injuries caused by tackling and making contact with the ground. Helmets significantly reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury, brain tissue bruising, and skull fractures.


    Mouthguards help protect you by absorbing the shock when you are hit in the mouth. This prevents shockwaves from the hit being sent through your teeth, jaw, and neck as well as keeps you from biting down on your tongue. 


    Protective pads are extremely important for football players. Shoulder pads are the biggest piece of protective equipment that football players wear. Football shoulder pads are made of a shock-absorbing foam that is covered in hard plastic. There are different types with varying levels of weight and coverage designed for different positions, including linebackers, quarterbacks, and defensive ends.

    Other protective pads include hip, thigh, and knee pads. These are worn underneath a player’s pants in order to protect them from collisions by softening the impact on vulnerable areas.


    Football cleats keep players safer and playing their best. Cleats provide traction, which makes football players able to run quickly, turn on a dime, and maintain stability. Cleats are an essential safety precaution for football players, as well as important for optimal performance.
