HOUSTON, Texas —The Houston Astros and Houston-based energy company Oxy today announced an expansion of their long-standing partnership where Oxy will become the team’s official jersey partner for the next seven seasons. The Oxy logo will be featured on the Astros jersey sleeve throughout the regular season and any postseason games.
The partnership builds on the relationship that both organizations formed in 2013 rooted in shared values, a passion for excellence and a strong commitment to community service throughout the Houston area.
“Oxy and the Astros share a passion for the city that we call home and it’s exciting to deepen our relationship and recognize our strong ties with Oxy’s addition to the World Series Champion’s jerseys,” said Vicki Hollub, President and CEO, Oxy. “We believe this partnership provides an opportunity to reach new audiences that share our commitment to building stronger local communities and who embrace the value of service to others.”
“We are excited to expand our relationship with Oxy as our inaugural jersey patch partners,” said Jeff Stewart, Vice President Corporate Partnerships. “The Astros are proud of our longstanding relationship with Oxy and are grateful for their shared commitment to both community and our fans.”
Oxy is a current sponsor of the Astros Foundation. Oxy also supports the Astros with Operation Military Appreciation, a signature gameday feature where veterans and active-duty military members receive complimentary tickets behind home plate at home games and are recognized during the game.
Through the foundation’s Community Leaders program, which provides young athletes with the environment and resources needed to develop physically and mentally, Oxy has renovated and maintained baseball fields and subsidized youth league registration fees, uniforms, and equipment in Houston’s Denver Harbor neighborhood.
The Astros Foundation and Oxy have also partnered to improve educational opportunities through the Literacy Bus, a mobile interactive unit that encourages family reading in Houston-area communities. In 2022, the program donated approximately 46,000 books to 41,000 children, in addition to school supplies for several districts.
