Best Seats at the Wells Fargo Center

Wells Fargo Center Seats

The Wells Fargo Center is Philadelphia’s home to the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers and the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers. The arena opened its doors in 1996, and with a capacity crowd of well over 20,000 seats, fans have plenty of options on where to sit. The Wells Fargo Center sits on the southern edge of downtown Philadelphia just off the banks of the Delaware River.

When not hosting sporting events, the Wells Fargo Center is one of the country’s top show and concert venues. Acts like Ray Charles, Oasis, Bruce Springsteen, and Ariana Grande have played shows to thousands of fans over the years. Other shows and events like Cirque Du Soleil visit the arena keeping it busy year-round.

For Sporting Events: As with any ticket purchase, where to sit boils down to budget vs. want. Everyone wants to sit courtside and yell at the players, but few people get that opportunity. Let’s be more realistic.

If you’re ready to spend some big bucks and impress your company, sections 1-4 are some of the best in the house. A combination of great views along the sideline and exclusive club amenities makes these tickets worth the steep costs.

For a great view of the action with a substantially cheaper price tag, check out sections 101-102 in the lower bowl across from the benches. The views are best for the avid fan, and the price tag is much more realistic. The lower you go in the bowl, the more expensive you’ll find the tickets.

Family outings are have always been an integral part of sports, so if you’re ready to bring the family, we recommend sections 202-204. These upper deck seats tend to go for lower costs and are located right next to some of the best concessions in the area.

Sometimes, you want to go to the game, but the only focus is the price. That’s fine too! You can find inexpensive tickets when you look in the right places and search for the right times. We recommend sections 218-220. These upper-level seats are in the corner providing an impressive view of the action.

For Concerts: Almost everyone agrees that the best place to enjoy a concert is on the floor right in front of the stage. If being too close to the stage is not your cup of tea, you can stay on the floor and find a head-on view of the stage from sections F4-F6. Just like with the sports seats, keep your budget in mind when looking at the head-on tickets.

In the Wells Fargo Center, the best options for a mix of price and views of the stage are sections 101 and 124. You get a blend of good proximity to the stage, excellent sound quality, and of course, much easier access in and out of your seats.

Pushing further back to sections 206-208 you’ll find some of the cheapest tickets without sacrificing the great views. If the price is your biggest concern, we suggest starting there and working your way around the upper deck to find the seats you want.

What To Expect When You Arrive:

Security and Bag Policy:  All attendees are subject to metal detector screening, visual inspection, and a thorough bag inspection at the entrance. Bags over 14”x14”x6” are not allowed. For a full list of policies and what to expect, see the Arena Policies on the arena’s website.

Parking: Wells Fargo Center features eight parking lots around the arena with ample parking for almost any event. If you’re not looking to drive with all the traffic, the Arena teamed up with SpotHero to help you find the “closest to the exit” spots, so you’ll be out the door on the way home in no time.

Wells Fargo Center Experience

If you’re ready for a meal before or after the show, we recommend checking out Victory Beer Hall, which is almost directly across from the arena. The craft beer-centric venue features plenty of TVs for fans to keep up with the day’s action as well as a stunning view from the deck.

The Wells Fargo Center sits close to incredible food and lodging choices, so you’re taken care of before, during, and after the show. Don’t miss out on your chance to live the experience too.
