Flyers to face Maple Leafs in London, Ont. on Sept. 22
Flyers make 10th trip to home away from home in preseason action

Global Spectrum Facility Management is pleased to announce its tenth NHL preseason game at Budweiser Gardens featuring the Philadelphia Flyers versus Toronto Maple Leafs.

Presented by Scotiabank, this decade-long tradition will return on September 22, 2014, and is the second consecutive year the two teams have played in London, Ontario during the NHL preseason. An annual ‘Hockey Day in London’ block party on Talbot Street will precede the puck drop at 7:00pm.

For ten seasons, the Flyers have considered Budweiser Gardens their ‘home away from home.’ Now in its 12th year of operation, the venue reputably hosts major sporting events including the recent 2013 World Figure Skating Championships and 2014 MasterCard Memorial Cup, all under the subsidiary of the Flyers’ owners and parent company Comcast-Spectacor.

This season will mark the fourth time the Maple Leafs have played in London, earning each of the previous victories versus the Flyers in 2013, 2010, and 2009.

“Budweiser Gardens is one of our most important accounts," said Global Spectrum President John Page. "It is the hub of our Canadian business. Bringing the Flyers to Budweiser Gardens is an opportunity to bring all of the Comcast-Spectacor entities together to showcase our family of products."

“As always, we are very excited about playing a preseason game at Budweiser Gardens. The fan support in London, Ontario has always been great and we look forward to the game,” said Philadelphia Flyers President Paul Holmgren.

This game will also be the tenth presented by Scotiabank. As part of its Community Hockey Sponsorship program, Scotiabank continues to demonstrate its commitment to both professional and local levels of hockey, reaching more than 4,500 minor teams across Canada. “Scotiabank’s support is integral to making this a yearly event as we will celebrate the Flyers’ return for the tenth season,” said Global Spectrum’s Brian Ohl, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Budweiser Gardens. “London is a great hockey town with enthusiastic and passionate fans. Scotiabank has always enhanced this fan experience, making it very special for our community.”

Talbot Street will be closed before the game starting at 4:00 p.m. for an annual ‘Hockey Day in London’ block party. Details regarding outdoor entertainment prior to puck drop as well as charitable benefactors for the game will be released at a later date in summer 2014.

The Flyers hold a 4-3-2 record in London, following a loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2013. Other NHL teams that have previously been through the facility doors over ten seasons include the Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, Atlanta Thrashers, and New York Islanders.

Global Spectrum is able to unveil its synergies and diverse resources with a yearly preseason game as part of its parent company. Founded in 1974, Comcast-Spectacor is a Philadelphia-based sports and entertainment company which owns the Flyers, their home arena – the Wells Fargo Center – and four Flyers Skate Zone community ice skating and hockey rinks. Global Spectrum is the fastest growing facility management firm with more than 110 client venues worldwide. Ovations Food Services, Paciolan ticketing software, and Front Row Marketing are also subsidiary partners of Comcast-Spectacor.
