End in sight for Wells Fargo Center renovations announced as club level overhaul announced

Fans of Sixers and Flyers can rejoice as the end is nearing for the $300 million reconstruction of the Wells Fargo Center, a project five years in the making.

The arena announced in a release on Wednesday that work will begin on a revamped club level, the venue’s premium skybox seating area, after the Flyers and Sixers finish their seasons.

The new club level, which will debut in the fall of 2022, is the final spectator-facing segment of the construction project.

“We have spared no expense and studied every detail to ensure that the new club level is not only an ideal place for companies to host their top clients, but also a great option for bringing friends, families and groups together,” says Mike Shane, the arena’s chief operating officer.

New features include a reworked entrance with premium seating, a 13,000-square-foot open floor plan, and a revamped high-end culinary offering.

Through a new celebrity chef program, the arena offers gourmet menu options curated by food and beverage experts from the Philly area. That’s on top of several club-level bars where fans can wet their whistles.

In addition, the premium parking lot will be relocated to be directly adjacent to the redesigned premium seating entrance, which should make it easier for club-level cardholders to enter and exit the venue.

Once the new club level is completed, work will be focused on the event level. New team changing rooms and facilities for artists will be built and the area will make improvements to the exterior of the building.

Renovations at the Wells Fargo Center started in 2016 as it prepared to host the Democratic National Convention.

Work on the mezzanine floor, which houses 40% of the venue’s spectators, was completed in 2018 and included new food options, 150 LED screens and a redesigned hall layout overlooking the skyline.

The arena installed the first-ever center-hung 4K kinetic scoreboard in 2019. The £90,000 behemoth is bigger than any other scoreboard in the NBA or the NHL.

Plans to refurbish the club level were first announced in March 2020, just days before the COVID-19 shutdown began.
