Comcast Spectacor entered the esports space in 2018 with the launch of the Philadelphia Fusion, which competed in the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. Spectacor Gaming is building the esports hub of the East Coast with their first-ever purpose-built, ground-up esports facility coined Fusion Arena.
The Philadelphia Fusion are the city’s first professional esports franchise and compete in the global Overwatch League. The team reflects the makeup of the City of Brotherly Love and delivers on the brand’s promise – a ‘Fusion’ of players and coaches from around the world.
Fusion Arena is a $50 million, next-generation esports and entertainment venue in the heart of the Philadelphia Sports Complex. Set to open its doors in 2021, the first-of-its-kind venue will seat up to 3,500 guests and stand as the largest new-construction, purpose-built esports arena in the Western Hemisphere.
