As the city of Philadelphia has evolved, the Wells Fargo Center has transformed with it. As the city’s millennial population has grown, the premier destination for sports and entertainment has experienced a rebirth. As concepts like ‘premium seating,’ ‘luxury boxes,’ and ‘VIP club’ become outdated, they are replaced with innovations that revolve around a more festival-oriented, social fan experience.
In the midst of a $250 million renovation, every aspect of the Wells Fargo Center will be transformed. Home to the Philadelphia Flyers, 76ers, Wings, Villanova Men’s Basketball and more than 250 events each year, the arena is set to be the most technologically advanced venue in the country. Powered by Comcast, the Wells Fargo Center offers unparalleled WiFi connectivity, which provides countless opportunities for fans to connect with the event, each other and the outside world.
Multiple sections will open to provide direct views of the event floor. Massive HD screens line widened corridors – ensuring fans never miss a moment of the action. A new state-of-the-art sound system and LED lighting will transform acoustics and visuals for the millions of guests that come through the venue each year.
New social spaces as well as meet-and-eat areas that appeal to millennials feature expanded food and beverage options with local tie-ins, many from Philadelphia’s booming restaurant and craft beer scene. The newly created Skyline Bar includes panoramic glass windows along the building’s north wall, offering stunning views of the city’s expanding skyline.
