Wells Fargo Center Once Again Opening for Phillies Games, this Time with a Tailgate Option
PHILADELPHIA (October 28, 2022) – For Philly sports fans, there’s only one place to be next week: the Sports Complex in South Philly, and for fans without tickets to the games, the New Wells Fargo Center has you covered. The arena is offering two great options for baseball fans on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday who aren’t going into the games but want to be in the middle of the action in South Philly.
OPTION 1: WATCH THE GAMES WITH FELLOW FANS INSIDE THE NEW WELLS FARGO CENTER:
On Monday, October 31 and Tuesday, November 1, the arena will open its doors to the Philly faithful starting at 7 p.m. on both nights and will play the games on all TV screens in the Main Concourse bars. $5 beers will be served along with select concessions and full bar menus. Last Sunday, fans celebrated inside the New Wells Fargo Center alongside thousands of fellow Philadelphians creating a one-of-a-kind atmosphere just steps from Citizens Bank Park.
Admission to the arena is free but fans must secure a ticket to scan for entry. To secure tickets, click here.
OPTION 2: OUTDOOR TAILGATING PACKAGE:
On Monday, October 31,Tuesday, November 1, and Wednesday, November 2, fans looking to create the ultimate, turnkey tailgating experience for up to 15 people just steps from the stadium can purchase a South Philly Tailgate package, which includes a parking spot in the New Wells Fargo Center’s H Lot north of the arena, additional tailgate space, a 10×10 tent, table, five chairs, access to private, portable restrooms, and a cooler filled with ice. Fans can bring their own food and beverages.
To purchase a South Philly Tailgate package, visit TailgatePhilly.com. Full set up and break down will be included in addition to access to private portable restrooms. The private area will open at 4 p.m. and also have plenty of space to set up tailgating games.
The Tailgate packages are going for $375. I don’t know if that’s a lot or if it’s reasonable. If you had the max of 15 people and divided it up equally, it would come out to $25 apiece. That’s pretty cheap, but then you have to BYOB and food, so tack on whatever that costs.
Either way, it’s gonna be cheaper than buying World Series tickets, which are going for exorbitant prices right now.
