Oakley the titan of sunglasses industry, is no stranger to sport endorsements, from professional teams to world class athletes. The like of Lance Armstrong, Juan Pablo Montoya, to Shaun White covering a broad range of sports. Now Oakley Thailand will be partnering with the Thai National lacrosse team for 2012, supplying them with the custom sunglasses, and other soft goods. The men’s team will be equipped with Dispatch II, and Jupiter Square sunglasses in Thailand’s Navy, Red, and White color scheme and the word “Thailand” laser on to the bottom left corner of their signature Iridium lens.
The players, and staffer will have a choice between the two glasses, on top of some of the best quality products ever made. Look out for an “O” on the TLA uniform/gears this season. The first bash of the glasses should be delivering to the team prior to their March 10th season opener in Bangkok. Payu the President of Thailand Lacrosse had this to say about it:
“It is great to be given the opportunity to partner with such a global brand like Oakley, they had been outfitting the world class athletes for decades with their high performance products. We are looking forward to work closer with them in the future, and truly appreciate the assistance Oakley had given us. We hope to grow as a team globally, to be on par with Oakley’s other sponsored teams, and athletes”.
