Western Direct Insurance extends multi-year sponsorship of Calgary Stampeders

CALGARY (AB), November 15, 2013 – Western Direct Insurance announced today that it has extended its multi-year partnership with the Calgary Stampeders CFL team. Western Direct Insurance first announced its sponsorship of the Stampeders earlier this year in June.

“We’re very excited to be continuing our relationship with the Calgary Stampeders,” said Jeff Burke, president of Western Financial Group, which offers Western Direct Insurance. “Our partnership during this memorable 2013 season has enabled us to team up together to demonstrate our mutual commitment to our community through our shared values. We’re proud to show our continued support to the Stampeders, their fans and to the Alberta community.”

“The Stampeder Football Club is thrilled to renew our partnership with Western Direct Insurance,” said Gordon Norrie, president of the Calgary Stampeders.  “The fit with both organizations in respect to community involvement is perfectly aligned. The Club very much appreciates the partnership.”

As part of the sponsorship Western Direct, an Alberta-based insurance company, will continue to have its logo appear directly on the game jerseys, scoreboard signage, in-game advertising and representation at charitable and community events.
