"Working with Gatorade fulfills a childhood dream of mine," said Newton. "I have used Gatorade since I started playing football and Gatorade products have been an important part of my training and competition regimen for as long as I can remember. As I look to improve my game, what I put in my body is extremely important. Gatorade provides me the opportunity to work with the world's leading scientists who can help me gain a competitive edge and play at my best."

"Gatorade is focused on elevating the importance of proper athletic fueling, so it's important for us to partner with athletes who believe sports nutrition improves performance. Gatorade has been an essential piece of Cam's football equipment since an early age which makes this partnership a natural fit," said Sarah Robb O'Hagan, president of North America and global CMO, Gatorade. "Cam has proven himself as a naturally gifted athlete with a promising NFL career. We look forward to helping him achieve his football goals by providing him with customized testing and research and a fueling plan to help him elevate his game."

Newton's Gatorade partnership kicks off by testing with scientists from the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) who will work one-on-one with him to identify ways in which he can improve his on-field performance through proper sports fueling and training. Newton will also be featured in upcoming Gatorade brand campaigns including television, print and digital advertising.
