The New York Yankees and Starr Insurance today announced that Starr Insurance has become the Signature Partner of the New York Yankees. Building on the successful partnership that the two organizations have had since 2018, this exclusive agreement extends through the 2031 season.
As part of the expanded relationship, Starr will continue as the Official Commercial Insurance Company of the New York Yankees and become the team’s first jersey patch partner, with the Starr Insurance logo debuting on Yankees uniforms on July 21. Additionally, Starr signage will be placed on the Yankee Stadium outfield wall in front of both the home and visiting team bullpens, complementing Starr’s existing billboard signage above the right-field bleachers. Starr will also become the Official Presenting Sponsor of the Yankees’ game-day lineup post on social media and will work closely with the New York Yankees Foundation on upcoming community initiatives in the New York metropolitan area.
Starr is a preeminent global insurance and investment organization that has a presence on six continents and maintains its largest office in New York City. Through its operating insurance companies, Starr provides commercial property, casualty, and accident & health insurance products, as well as a range of specialty coverages including aviation, marine, energy and excess casualty insurance. Starr is led by Chairman and CEO Maurice R. Greenberg, who also serves as Chairman of The Starr Foundation, one of the largest philanthropic organizations in the United States.
“We are extremely proud to welcome Starr Insurance as the Yankees’ first-ever Signature Partner,” said New York Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. “Having had Starr as an insurance carrier of ours for the last decade and having worked closely with their leadership team as part of our preestablished partnership, it is clear that Starr is the right company to embark with on this landmark relationship. There were many aspects of Starr that aligned with our organization, including their century-plus history, significant New York presence, worldwide reach and unparalleled commitment to the community. My father was also well-acquainted with Mr. Greenberg, whose devotion to philanthropy I deeply respect.”
“Starr and the Yankees, one of the world’s most widely recognized professional sports teams, share important values — including a commitment not just to teamwork and winning, but to excellence in how we do business and serve a broad range of constituencies,” said Maurice R. Greenberg, Starr Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re proud of the unique partnership we have forged over the past five years and have now deepened for many years to come.”
