If you’re looking to enjoy an exciting sports game, just head to the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. This area features three large sports arenas/stadiums that see more than 8 million visitors each year. Here’s a little more about each arena, via our Philadelphia International Airport parking company:
Wells Fargo Center
The Wells Fargo Center is home to a variety of Philadelphia sports teams. These include the Philadelphia Flyers (NHL), the Philadelphia 76ers (NBA), The Philadelphia Soul (AFL), and the Philadelphia Wings (NLL). First known as the Spectrum II, the Wells Fargo Center was built in 1996 and depending on the sport being played, it can seat between 19,500 and 21,000 visitors. You’ll also find club box seats, suites, and VIP packages for a more private experience. The arena is also a regular venue for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) events and concerts, and visitors can enjoy a variety of dining and drink options inside the center.
Citizens Bank Park
If you’re interested in a baseball game, our Philadelphia International Airport parking company suggests Citizens Bank Park. This baseball park was built to replace the old Veterans Stadium (a multipurpose baseball/football facility) and opened in 2004. It’s home to the Philadelphia Phillies (MLB) and can seat more than 43,000 people. Once inside, visitors can enjoy a variety of Philadelphia-style food stands that feature cheesesteaks, hoagies, crab fries, and more. After the game, take a walk down Ashburn Alley (named for Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn) to discover a bronze statue, memorabilia, city and state flags, games, historical facts, and more.
Lincoln Financial Field
Like Citizens Bank Park, Lincoln Financial Field was built to replace Veterans Stadium. Affectionately known as “The Linc,” it opened in 2003 and is home to the Philadelphia Eagles (NFL) as well as the Division I football team of Temple University. It’s also the site where the Army-Navy football game is often played. The stadium can seat more than 69,000 visitors and also offers private suites and club lounges. In 2013, The Linc became the “greenest” NFL stadium. It launched an installation of 11,000 solar panels and 14 wind turbines. These alternative energy features make up around 30% of the electricity the stadium uses.
