FOOTHILL RANCH, California—Oakley has announced a partnership with MVP quarterback, Patrick Mahomes II, making him the first-ever football player to join Team Oakley. Mahomes will support the brand’s iconic Prizm technology as a part of the partnership. “I am honored to join the Oakley family as the first ever football athlete,” said Mahomes. “After spending time at Oakley HQ and meeting with the brand’s innovators, designers and scientists, I know that together we can push the boundaries of what is possible in sport performance and beyond.”

Additionally, Mahomes will be featured in the brand’s SEE IT IN PRIZM campaign and off-the-field, Mahomes will wear a range of lifestyle eyewear, including Sutro, available now, and the all-new Ahyris Collection, launching in May.

“Patrick Mahomes II is one of the most electrifying young athletes in all of sports, not just football,” said Gwen Van Lingen Oakley’s SVP of Sports Marketing. “With an unmatched combination of character, athleticism, precision, vision and football IQ, we’re excited to welcome Patrick to Team Oakley and continue to support him with the equipment to perform at an MVP level.”

At 23 years-old, Mahomes came onto the professional scene in 2018. He capped his first season as starting quarterback with several of the league’s most prestigious honors: Most Valuable Player, First-Team All-Pro, Offensive Player of the Year, Pro Bowler and led the league with 50 touchdown passes.

“Oakley has produced football shields for helmets for over 20 years, bringing the brand’s leading optical innovations to athletes of all levels. The brand is excited to sign their first football athlete and continue to expand within the sport,” Oakley stated.

Oakley develops products and technologies designed to meet the performance demands of the world’s best athletes, including Patrick Mahomes II, Aaron Judge, Bubba Watson, Chloe Kim, Ryan Sheckler and more, and then makes those same innovations available for athletes of all levels.
