Indoor football should boost Chevrolet Centre
YOUNGSTOWN — Officials with the Chevrolet Centre and the city see the Mahoning Valley Thunder indoor football team as a key component in moving the facility’s finances in the right direction.
A successful season of af2 (areanfootball2) games at the center would help the Chevrolet Centre, a facility that continues to struggle financially, they say.
Because football is tremendously popular in the Mahoning Valley, Kyle L. Miasek, the city’s deputy finance director and its point-man on the center, expects the Thunder to do well.
“There is a great football heritage here, and you’ve got a great facility with every seat being excellent,” he said. “I can’t imagine it not working.”
“The buzz around the community is great,” said Adam Tokash, the team’s general manager. “We have no doubt it will be a success.”
