FAIRFIELD, NJ – Liberty Sport is excited to announce a sponsorship with South Bronx United to supply sports protective eyewear to the students and athletes while providing opportunities to educate them on the importance of eye protection. Striving to make a difference by engaging at-risk and immigrant youth through their passion for soccer, South Bronx United serves over 800 boys and girls aged 4-19 with a variety of programs from academic and leadership to recreational and competitive youth soccer.

As part of the sponsorship, Liberty Sport will provide custom ‘South Bronx United’ frames, with a complete Rx to the athletes and they will also be available for purchase. Liberty Sport will have a display at the Annual Health and Wellness fair to help grow awareness on the need for sports protective eyewear and provide educational materials to the students and parents. In addition, South Bronx United student-athletes will also have the opportunity to provide direct product feedback to the Liberty Sport Product Development Team.

 “It’s great to partner with an organization like the South Bronx United, in generating awareness and providing a service to the local community. We enjoy having the opportunity to support our advocates and athletes, and we are looking forward to a long-lasting partnership,” says Daniel Chang, Manager of Sports Organizations Outreach at Liberty Sport.

 The My Spex Collection from Liberty Sport provides ASTM F803 certified impact protection for several sports. Patented eye rim assembly and 6-base lens curve design allows for a wide range of prescription lens powers and the sculpted temple design has color coordinated inside padding. The customization program allows for the placement of a specific team name and number and is available in Matte Black, Matte Crimson, Matte Electric Blue, Matte Hunter Green and Matte Navy.
