In 2008, Allstate launched the “Protection is Our Game” (in Spanish, Protección es la jugada) campaign through a partnership with the Mexican federation to reinforce the company’s commitment to protecting its customers.

One of Allstate’s promotional plans includes support of Sueno MLS, a free tryout program in search of the best undiscovered Hispanic talent, and other grassroots Hispanic programs.
