There was a press event on Thursday providing a first look at the transformation of the Wells Fargo Center’s event level.

Here’s the accompanying release:

Earlier today, the New Wells Fargo Center opened its doors to provide media a behind-the-scenes look at the major, ongoing transformation of the arena’s Event Level, which includes the construction of new, state-of-the-art locker rooms for hockey and basketball and other world-class amenities for players, their families, and fans.  The Event Level overhaul is one of the critical, final phases of the New Wells Fargo Center’s $400 million Transformation project.  

The Event Level project will completely re-imagine 46,000 square feet inside the arena, with over 16,000 square feet dedicated to new facilities for both the 76ers and the Flyers, including upgraded weight and cardio rooms, state-of-the-art medical facilities including a trauma center, and top-of-the-line family spaces for both teams. The New Wells Fargo Center has already invested $16 million into the Event Level, including construction of the Shift4 Club, one of the country’s top courtside/ice-side clubs.  This summer’s project will mark an additional $30 million investment.

The New Wells Fargo’s Center $400+ million Transformation project is fully privately funded by Comcast Spectacor and slated to be completed in the fall of 2023. The Transformation project, which supports hundreds of jobs in South Philadelphia, will ensure that the New Wells Fargo Center remains a world-class venue for hockey, basketball, and more for decades to come. The New Wells Fargo Center is also a key anchor of South Philadelphia’s revitalization and the city’s unique Sports Complex. 

Fans likely have not seen this area before. The bowels of the Wells Fargo Center were pretty beat up and saw a lot of use over the past three decades, so the event floor definitely needed some love. Comcast has poured a ton of money into renovating the rest of the arena so far, which looks great, and so now they’re working on the player areas and assorted stuff on the ground floor.

This should look really nice when done. Upgrades for the players, etc. Honestly, the WFC is a good place to watch a game now. It’s really been modernized over the past few seasons.
