Comcast Spectacor to Commemorate Iconic Moment in Flyers History

Comcast-Spectacor will unveil a new seven-foot tall bronze statue commemorating one of the most iconic moments in Philadelphia Flyers history during a free, open-to-the-public ceremony at XFINITY Live! on Saturday, March 30 beginning at 11 a.m. The unveiling of the new statue also marks the one-year anniversary of Philly's newest and most exciting dining and entertainment complex, XFINITY Live!

This new 400-pound statue represents the Flyers greatest achievement in their history – winning back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships on May 19, 1974 and May 27, 1975. The new statue features then team captain Bob Clarke and goaltender Bernie Parent hoisting the Stanley Cup.

Fans are encouraged to attend a ceremony to unveil the statue in front of the Broad Street Bullies Pub at XFINITY Live! on Saturday, March 30 at 11 a.m.

The name of the statue, chosen by Flyers fans, will be announced at this ceremony. Names that are among the finalists are: Victory, The Cup, Broad Street Bullies, Flyers Champions or Walk Together Forever.

Clarke and Parent will attend the ceremony, as will team Chairman Ed Snider and Team President Peter Luukko.

Designed by STATUES.COM, the statue was custom created and built by a talented sculpting and fabrication team who specializes in statue manufacturing. The team included Lead Production Manager Vasilios Karpos, Lead Foundry Manager Ken Donnelly, artisan foundry refining by Miguel Cardoso and Yanni Trastsis, silicone mold construction by Karpos and Trastis and clay sculpting construction by Virgil Oirtle and Karpos. Sculpting began from scratch using fine artistic clays based off of the famed photo as a direct reference to create detailed accuracy of not only that moment in time but of both players portraiture, uniforms and the Stanley Cup itself.

After the seven-foot tall model was completed and approved, a silicone mold was constructed followed by highly skilled bronze foundry work, finishing the over 400 lbs. bronze monument. The entire process took almost nine months to complete and all work was proudly produced, created and constructed in the United States.

The studio that the statue was created in is located in Salt Lake City, Utah and is a Certified Made in USA company operating since 1995.
