By Community | October 16, 2020

Rugby World Cup Winning South African captain Siya Kolisi has signed two partnership deals, globally with Oakley and a five-year deal with Freedom Of Movement.

“To stand side-by-side with some of the world’s greatest athletes within the Oakley family is  really exciting,” says Siya Kolisi. “I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve with  this partnership and with the Global platform that Oakley offers.” 

With its rich heritage in sports performance across the globe, it was an easy decision for  Oakley to align with Rugby World Magazine’s Most Influential Person. “Siya’s pioneering  spirit and passion for excellence is awe-inspiring,” says Ben Goss, Oakley Global Marketing  Director. “On and off the field, his ground-breaking impact is undeniable. We are so excited  to have this force of nature as part of Team Oakley.”  

Kolisi’s extension with Freedom Of Movement follows the successful socially-driven product collaboration ‘FOMxKolisi’, where proceeds were donated to the development of the Mbekweni sports field located in the Western Cape.

The new deal positions Kolisi as a partner, allowing for involvement and input across all areas of the business, including creative design, product development and social initiatives.

The partnership aims to develop and design authentic product ranges dedicated to various upliftment and awareness projects and promises to make a meaningful positive impact in South Africa. 

“The journey that FOM and I have embarked on has already made such significant change and I’m looking forward to seeing what more we can achieve together and the impact we can make on lives around South Africa, as well as delivering the highest quality product” says Siya Kolisi.
