The defense company, which has been the title sponsor of the event since the 2014 game, will be on board through at least 2025.
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Lockheed Martin will continue to serve as our title sponsor for six more years,” said Brant Ringler, executive director of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. “Lockheed Martin’s commitment to our game, the city of Fort Worth and our nation’s armed forces is second to none. Their leadership and dedication has allowed us to elevate the event to greater national prominence each year, and we look forward to continuing to work with Lockheed Martin to honor our armed forces members through a fantastic football event.”
Lockheed Martin has more than 15,000 employees in North Texas, primarily at its Aeronautics business headquarters in Fort Worth and its Missiles and Fire Control business headquarters in Grand Prairie. Support for military members and veterans is a core component of Lockheed Martin’s philanthropy and volunteerism efforts.
“We are proud to continue our title sponsorship for the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl through 2025 and look forward to our continuing partnership with ESPN to honor and recognize our armed forces, veterans and their families,” said Frank St. John, executive vice president, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
