PHILADELPHIA (April 10, 2023) – The New Wells Fargo Center today announced a partnership with Evolv Technology, the leader in hands-off security technology, to streamline and speed up the fan security screening process at the arena. The New Wells Fargo Center now features Evolv’s state-of-the-art Evolv Express® screening solution for Flyers games as well as concerts and other touring events at the arena, allowing fans to pass through security in a faster and easier way than ever before. Evolv is the fan screening provider for dozens of sports teams around the country from the NFL, MLB, NHL and MLS, including the Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies.


Evolv Express uses powerful sensor technology with artificial intelligence (AI) to provide safer, more accurate threat detection at unprecedented volume and speed. It instantly distinguishes between threats and the everyday items, so people do not need to always empty pockets and bags. As a result, the majority of fans make their way directly into the arena without having to stop at security. Wells Fargo Center began using Evolv at Flyers hockey games in mid-February.  This past season, Wells Fargo Center began permitting bags during Flyers and 76ers games that are larger than 4.5” x 6.5” but smaller than 14”x14”x6,” subject to an x-ray screening. The arena is hopeful that bags of this size will soon no longer need to be individually screened, thanks to the Evolv technology.

It’s the same shit the Phillies just added. Eagles, too. If you were down at the ballpark for the Reds series, you saw the Evolv stuff as you were walking in:

Are you gonna be me? The dipshit who continues to empty his pockets even though he doesn’t have to anymore? It’s gonna be embarrassing. Can’t wait for the security people to look at me like I’m a complete idiot.
