As part of the merger, all logos and naming rights of Matelica were given away to Prima Categoria club G.S. Corrado Fabiani Matelica, formally owned by chairman Mauro Canil's wife and which is now to be legally considered the heir of Matelica itself, whereas, as part of the merger, Anconitana brought the original footballing logo, as well as the rights to use the Stadio del Conero in the city of Ancona. The new club's board will be the same as Matelica's, with Mauro Canil as majority shareholder and chairman, whereas Anconitana's original owner Stefano Marconi will be linked to Ancona-Matelica as the club's official main sponsor for the following five years. The club board stated their aim to have the official name changed to just "Ancona" by 2022, pending approval by the Italian Football Federation.
On 30 March 2022, Malaysian billionaire entrepreneur Tony Tiong, nephew of Tiong Hiew King, was announced as the new majority shareholder, after having acquired 95% of the club's shares. By the end of the season, the club changed its denomination to Unione Sportiva Ancona, thus severing its association with Matelica altogether.
