Allen, Texas – Two local staples, the Allen Americans Professional Hockey Club & Globe Life and Accident Insurance Company (Globe Life), have partnered together to feature the iconic Globe Life brand on the front of game jerseys during the 2017 & 2018 seasons.
With McKinney and Allen as neighboring suburbs, Globe Life’s Senior Vice President of Digital Marketing and Branding, Corey Jones sees it as a great for the McKinney headquartered Globe Life to show support of the community. “We look forward to this relationship with the four-time champion Allen Americans. While many people in the DFW area may have heard of Globe Life,
some may not be aware we have more than 1,500 employees at our McKinney headquarters. We’re always looking for great talent to join our organization and are thrilled for the brand awareness opportunities for the Allen-Plano-Frisco-McKinney areas throughout Allen Americans Partnership.”
The Allen Americans will continue to wear both the traditional all Red Jersey and the Red, White, and Blue jerseys throughout the season, adorned with a Globe Life patch on the front of the jerseys. “Any company’s logo that is going to share space on a jersey with the Americans crest has to share our organization’s value of investment in our community,” says Robert Ciccotelli, Allen Americans Director of Corporate Partnerships. “Globe Life, with its rich history of involvement in North Texas, is the perfect fit. We are excited to partner with Globe Life to continue to give back to our fans and community, and we look forward to working with Globe Life for years to come.”
Globe Life, most widely known for holding the naming right to Globe Life Park in Arlington of the Texas Rangers, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Torchmark Corporation (NYSE: TMK) and headquartered in McKinney, Texas. Torchmark’s other insurance subsidiaries include American Income Life, Liberty National, United American, and Family Heritage Life.
