Allstate Insurance Company, the largest publicly held personal insurer in the US, has extended its sponsorship with the United States Olympic Committee. The agreement maintains Allstate's designation as the official home and auto insurance sponsor for US Olympic and Paralympic teams through to 2008.

In addition to the extension, Allstate has renewed its sponsorship of the US Pan American Team that will compete in the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Supporting the United States Olympic Committee and America’s dedicated athletes provides the Allstate family a unique opportunity to be a part of the Olympic Games experience, said Joseph Tripodi, Allstate’s chief marketing officer.

The Allstate sponsorship entitles the company to continue the use of the official home and auto insurance designations, and the US Olympic and Paralympic marks in its advertising and marketing efforts.
