GREENVILLE MAKES OWNERSHIP CHANGE

The ECHL announced that the League’s Board of Governors has approved the Transfer of Controlling Interest in the Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Rapid City Rush Memberships to Spire Sports + Entertainment by unanimous vote.

Based outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, Spire Sports + Entertainment is bolstered by principled employees with decades of collective experience in brand consulting, celebrity representation and career management, business development, sponsorship placement and program management, event activation, hospitality, media relations, social media support and strategic consulting.

Spire Sports had a minority ownership investment with Rapid City during the 2019-20 season, and will now serve as the majority ownership interest with both Greenville and Rapid City.

“For over a year now, Spire Sports + Entertainment has been a welcome part of the ECHL, and their impact and experience have been valuable assets in Rapid City and to the League,” said Ryan Crelin, Commissioner of the ECHL. “On behalf of the ECHL, I’d like to thank Scott Mueller in Rapid City and Doug Heinzer and the existing ownership in Greenville for their commitment to hockey in those respective markets and making this transition possible, as we welcome a larger presence from Spire Sports and their talented team of personnel to further grow the ECHL fanbase in these two markets.”
