Tucker Roberts was named President of the Philadelphia Fusion in January 2018. In this role, Roberts is responsible for driving the sustained success of the organization, as well as Comcast Spectacor’s strategic growth in the esports space. Reporting directly to Chairman and CEO Dave Scott, Roberts leads the day-to-day management of the team, secures key marketing agreements, and serves as the primary contact with Overwatch League officials.
Roberts joined the Fusion as a strategic advisor in September 2017, shortly after Comcast Spectacor announced the establishment of its Philadelphia-based esports franchise in the new Overwatch League. Since that time, he has played an instrumental role in formulating the Fusion’s international roster of players and coaches, as well as the creation and launch of the team’s brand.
Prior to joining Comcast Spectacor, Roberts acquired several years of experience working in esports with industry leaders Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts. Roberts first developed his interest in the rapidly growing space during a summer internship while studying at The Wharton School.
Roberts earned a B.S. in Marketing and Management from The University of Pennsylvania in 2013, and currently lives in Los Angeles, where all 12 Overwatch League teams are playing their matches during this inaugural season.
