WELCOME BACK FLYERS!
Good news for hockey fans and good news for the City Treasury – the NHL is back!
Our Flyers are home on Saturday 01/19 vs the Penguins.
Except for the 76’ers, the sports complex has been quiet since the Eagles last game in December. The Flyers generate substantial tax revenue for the City and provide part-time employment to many in the City and the region so PIDC welcomes them back. Sports Bars and restaurants in the area can also look forward to big boost in business as the region gets ‘Flyered-up’
According to Forbes, the Flyers are one of the NHL’s strongest brands, selling out every game and attracting a loyal and enthusiastic audience on TV.
This season will be shorter than usual but who knows – maybe a deep run in the playoffs and a Stanley Cup final can make up for the games lost in 2012.
