DALLAS (June 19, 2019) – The five-time world champion Dallas Cowboys and Ryan, the world’s largest Firm dedicated exclusively to business taxes, have announced a five-year partnership, making the North Texas-based Firm the “Official Tax Partner of the Dallas Cowboys.”
“The Dallas Cowboys are much more than a football team. We are a respected and thriving global organization that pursues partners who are the best at their craft and share our vision of winning and giving back to the community,” said Dallas Cowboys Chief Operating Officer Stephen Jones. “Ryan is an ideal partner for us. We share the same passion for excellence, winning, and generosity, and are thrilled to join forces with the leading global tax services firm.”
The exclusive partnership includes the opening of the Ryan Club at AT&T Stadium as well as Ryan becoming the presenting sponsor of the Dallas Cowboys Community Quarterback Challenge, which invites North Texas high school football teams to develop, present for grants, and execute community outreach projects that directly impact their campus, feeder schools, or neighboring communities. In 2019, the Challenge saw approximately 1,000 student athletes team up with their communities and implement 16 “Huddle” events.
