Covelli Centre naming rights retained

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Covelli Centre has announced that it will continue its partnership with Covelli Enterprises, including retaining the naming rights.

According to a news release from the Covelli Centre, the venue has agreed to a three-year extension with the corporation. The extension includes a $200,000 commitment per year from Covelli Enterprises from May 2013 - April 2016.

"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," said Sam Covelli, Owner and CEO of Covelli Enterprises. "In the past four years, with the overwhelming support of this community what has happened at the Centre has exceeded my expectations."

Eric Ryan, President of JAC Management Group, shares similar feelings on the success of the partnership."It is such an honor that the Covelli family trust us with their name and we work hard to make them proud," said Ryan.

During its tenure under the Covelli name, the Centre has been home to acts including Barry Manilow, Bob Dylan, and Motley Crue, as well as more than 10 sell-out shows in the past year including Monster Trucks, Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, Carrie Underwood, Kid Rock, Rascal Flatts, and Eric Church.

Covelli said he is excited about the future of the Covelli Centre and its impact on the Youngstown community.
