Disney’s ESPN unit has been facing dropping subscriber counts together with increased costs for purchasing the rights to air sporting events. This tie in certainly won’t solve those bigger problems, but anything that Disney can do to shore up its sports business will likely get a thumbs up internally.

The new facility is slated to open in the summer of 2019.
