Tues. 8:45 pm: Covelli retains naming rights on Youngstown arena

YOUNGSTOWN – The Covelli Centre will keep its name into the next decade.

Covelli Enterprises announced a five-year extension of its agreement to provide naming rights for the downtown Youngstown arena.

According to a statement from Sam Covelli, owner/CEO of Covelli Enterprises, “When our company agreed to put our name on the Centre in 2009, we did it because of our commitment to the community and our belief in Eric Ryan and his team to turn the Centre around. In the past seven years, with the overwhelming support of this community, what has happened at the Centre has exceeded my expectations.”
