As we navigate our lives and businesses during this time of the COVID-19 outbreak we provide these updates on behalf of the Philadelphia Freedoms:
- Presently our home season is on schedule for July 16 – 30 at Drexel University. We will, of course, adhere to all government guidelines as well as those of Drexel University, but remain hopeful that the crisis will ease in time for a bright summer ahead. Won’t it be great to finally MAKE plans after cancelling so many!
- Freedoms individual tickets will go on sale sometime next month – stay tuned. Season tickets remain on sale and are available through our website. We will be excited to bring the world’s best tennis and fun nightly dining and entertainment to the beautiful Daskalakis Center at Drexel University in the vibrant neighborhood of University City.
Finally, a shout-out to the amazing efforts of those in all walks of life – healthcare, transit, restaurants, retail, delivery, janitors and first responders, to name some – who are working at risk to keep us provided for and safe. And a special note of thanks to our Freedoms’ sponsors, most notably AmerisourceBergen Corporation and Penn Medicine, on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.
- AmerisourceBergen’s sourcing teams are closely monitoring the supply chain for potential impacts to ensure support for patients in need of treatment. They are proactively increasing inventory on items related to COVID-19 treatment and supportive care like IV fluids, generic injectables and related products for acute care providers, as well as essential medicines in other classes.
- The Perelman School of Medicine at Penn has established a new center to help expand and accelerate research related to the novel coronavirus. Penn is hopeful the research will ultimately support the development of potential vaccines, diagnostic tools and effective therapies for COVID-19.
This July, the Philadelphia Freedoms will be honored to do our part to give back and contribute our resources to this wonderful community we call home…
“cause we live and breathe this Philadelphia Freedom.”
Shine the light everyone…and stay safe.
