It is believed to be the largest Esports facility in the Western hemisphere. Once Fusion Arena is built, it’ll seat up to 3,500 people.

The Arena will be home to the Philadelphia Fusion team. Populous, an architecture firm, said construction will begin this summer.

“We’re thrilled to introduce a venue like no other as we move forward with the next phase of development within the Philadelphia Sports Complex,” Dave Scott, chairman and CEO of Comcast Spectacor, said. “Fusion Arena gives Esports fans a best-in-class venue to call home and be proud of. Beyond competitive gaming, it’s a stunning facility that will host a wide array of events.”

Events at Fusion Arena will help promote the gaming world. Today, people are receiving full-time jobs from playing video games.

“Fusion Arena will set the gold standard for competitive gaming and debut on one of the country’s most exciting platforms of sports and entertainment amid Philadelphia’s professional sports teams,” Blake Cordish, principal of The Cordish Companies, said.

Fusion Arena, once built, will showcase the history of Philadelphia.

There will be two balcony bars in the Arena with club seats, which will also have USB ports, with suites, as well. In addition, there will be a training facility, a broadcast studio, and team offices.

“This project places Esports alongside all the major traditional sports that call South Philadelphia home,” Joe Marsh, chief business officer of Spectator Gaming and the Philadelphia Fusion, said. 

This is the latest news involving the Sports Complex. The Wells Fargo Center is going through “Transofmration 2020” initiative, which will include many enhacements for $250 million.
