The decade is coming to an end shortly, if you can believe it.
As such, the Wells Fargo Center folks shared some data about the past 10 years via press release, plus an infographic that exposes us for the gluttonous and insatiable sports and entertainment fans that we are.
Since 2009, Wells Fargo Center has sold nearly 6.3 million tickets to over 600 non-sporting events including concerts, WWE events, and family shows like Disney on Ice, the Original Harlem Globetrotters and Marvel Universe Live!.
Over the past 10 years, guests at Wells Fargo Center have worked up quite the appetite. As a matter of fact, in the last decade, Philly fans coming through the arena have helped to consume over 18 million buckets of crab fries and much, much more.
18 million buckets? That’s a lot of sodium, though it’s definitely worth it:
That’s a lot of crab fries. If we eat any more crab fries, we might turn into crab fries.
The Wells Fargo Center people say the arena hosts more than 250 events every year, which brings in more than 2.6 million fans. Going back a full decade then, that’s about 2,500 events and 26 million people. Crazy.
