Microban 24 is Named Official Sanitizing Spray of the NFL
After helping to protect the locker room surfaces last season, Microban 24 has now been named the Official Sanitizing Spray of the NFL to bring surface protection to locker room surfaces across the country. This season, Microban 24 is supplying NFL teams with sanitizing products, which keep killing bacteria on high-touch, hard surfaces for up to 24 hours, touch after touch. The brand is also teaming up with NFL protectors on and off the field to extend that protection to local youth football teams.

To kick off the second year of the Most Valuable Protectors program, Microban 24 has named former Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis Sr. the Most Valuable Protector, as he helps bring long-lasting bacteria defense to the Mecklenburg County (Charlotte, NC) Challenger Flag Football League, which serves children and young adults with disabilities.
