Comcast-Spectacor will run new soccer stadium

When Philadelphia Union opens for business in the Spring of 2010, the expansion Major League Soccer (MLS) club will kick off with an experienced and proven partner.

Keystone Sports and Entertainment LLC, the ownership group of Philadelphia Union, today announced the formation of a comprehensive partnership with Comcast-Spectacor, the Philadelphia-based sports and entertainment company.

“Comcast-Spectacor is well known for creating the type of memorable guest experiences that we are determined to provide for our dedicated supporters,” said Keystone Sports and Entertainment and Philadelphia Union CEO and Operating Partner Nick Sakiewicz. “There are many synergies between our two organizations, but this long-term relationship is founded upon a mutual commitment to producing world-class events. We can’t imagine a better partner to help us service our fans and carry out our vision along the Delaware River waterfront.”

In conjunction with Philadelphia Union, Comcast-Spectacor will utilize the expertise of three separate entities to manage the new 18,500-seat stadium, provide food and beverage concessions and catering, and support Union ticket sales.
