Whalers arena undergoes name change

Effective today, Compuware Sports Arena will now be known simply as Compuware Arena.

"Compuware Arena has always hosted a wide range of events: drive-in movies, tradeshows, concerts, graduation ceremonies, and corporate meetings,” said Compuware Arena president and Plymouth Whalers GM Michael Vellucci. “Even though the Whalers, youth hockey, figure skating and professional indoor soccer are very important to our business, we feel that the new name more accurately reflects what we bring to our community and the over 1.2 million guests we serve each year.”

Compuware Arena, located on Beck Road just north of M-14 in Plymouth Township, was originally built in 1996 as a venue for the Ontario Hockey League’s Whalers and the Compuware youth hockey program.

Along with the name change, Compuware Arena is adopting a new logo (see above), updated signage around the arena and a new website that can be found at The changes are effective immediately, with all future business to be undertaken with the new name.
