The Flyers are still in search of a new place to play hockey, but they’re not going to stop trying.
The Flyers are in search for a new facility to play games at and the latest report has them in talks with a team in the United Kingdom.
The news broke on Monday and now the Flyers have confirmed it, according to an article on Sportsnet.ca.
It appears the Flyers were interested in a new venue.
According to the article, Flyers General Manager Ron Hextall was in the UK recently to speak to the City of Newcastle about a possible site for a hockey facility.
The team has also been in contact with several clubs in Europe and the Netherlands about possible locations.
It is unclear if the Flyers and the club will have to move in order for the deal to be finalized.
The article says there are two potential locations that would fit into the Flyers’ current hockey operation.
The first location is a proposed arena in the heart of Newcastle’s CBD.
The other location is in the U.K. capital, London.
Both would provide more space and could attract more fans to the Flyers, the article says.
The deal could be finalized in the next few weeks, the story says.
“The Philadelphia Flyers are a family,” Hextalls wife, Ashley, said in a statement.
“I want to thank everyone who has supported us over the years.
I’m excited to see the new facility and all the wonderful fans who come to the games.
It will be a special place to be.”
