West Valley City – Centennial Management Group, along with West Valley City, announced today a new partnership and naming rights for the building formerly known as the E Center, one of Utah’s premier entertainment venues and home to the Utah Grizzlies ECHL hockey team and Utah Blaze Arena Football League football team. In an agreement with Maverik, the region’s leading convenience and gas retailer headquartered in Utah, the arena will be renamed Maverik Center.
“This is a big win for our City – it’s been a long time coming,” says Mayor Mike Winder. “Maverik is a local company with a strong presence not only in the region, but in our City. Everyone involved in the partnership will benefit, including consumers.”
Along with the Grizzlies and Blaze, the venue has been host to the 2002 Winter Olympic Hockey events, as well as some of the biggest names in entertainment and pop and rock music, including Elton John, Metallica, Linkin Park, Gwen Stefani, Pearl Jam, AC/DC, Michael Bublé and many others.
