The National Hockey League’s (NHL) Philadelphia Flyers and the Philadelphia Fusion Overwatch League (OWL) team are working on putting together a joint ticket package, according to Sports Business Daily.
The US-based industry outlet reports that the first of its kind offer will include tickets to both the Flyers’ ice hockey games and the Fusion’s esports events.
The move would be made possible because both the Flyers and the Fusion are owned by sports and entertainment company Comcast Spectator.
The plans were confirmed to Sports Business Daily by Fusion chief business officer Joe Marsh, who attributed the idea to the OWL franchise’s president Tucker Roberts.
Marsh told Sports Business Daily that Roberts “sees ownership of big-four sport and esports as symbiotic… so he’s really been pushing to have that cross pollination with Comcast owning both teams.”
Marsh added that further details of the partnership are not yet ready to be released.
