The Wells Fargo Center will allow fans at limited capacity for Philadelphia Flyers games during the month of March, according to an official announcement Tuesday afternoon.
Approximately 3,100 masked fans, 15% of the capacity that reaches nearly 21,000, will be permitted to attend the eight Flyers home games during the month of March. The policies will begin when the Flyers face the Washington Capitals on Sunday, March 7th, just two days shy of a calendar year since the last Flyers home game played in front of fans.
Flyers fans luckily have some good news to focus on outside of the drubbing at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins Tuesday night.
The Excitement- Let’s Go Flyers!
The Flyers will be playing in front of a crowd! Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier’s next goals will be followed by more than just a goal horn ringing through empty seats covered in tarps. James van Riemsdyk has already expressed the team’s optimism in looking forward to the roar of the crowd.
Flyers fans will soon hear public address announcer Lou Nolan’s voice exclaim, “Are you ready for some hockey!?” moments before an opening faceoff. They should look forward to some bubble hockey matchups in the concourse.
They should even welcome the opportunity to see that crazy dancing guy in the nosebleed sections again.
However, proper expectations need to be set given the limitations of this progressive and optimistic time in the city of Philadelphia.
Back to Broad Street
The Wells Fargo Center has launched its “Back to Broad Street” plan with essential public information.
The South Philadelphia arena hopes to increase the number of fans permitted in the building after the month of March based on health protocols yet to be determined.
Flyers season ticket holders are receiving high priority access as part of a pre-sale, and purchasing plans for the 2021-22 Flyers season also offers incentives for accessibility to tickets for March home games.
Tickets were made available to season ticket holders on Wednesday in four-game packages, splitting the eight home games into one Orange Plan and one Black Plan. The packages, with seats available in “pod” style allowing only groups of two or four, starting at about $58.25 per seat in the upper level and $108 in the lower level.
Single-game tickets are now on sale exclusively for season ticket holders, and individual seat prices have increased from Wednesday’s multi-game package rates. StubHub lists premium seats for various prices.
Any remaining Flyers tickets will be released to a priority waitlist for fans in the general public Friday at noon, but even ticket sales representatives from the Wells Fargo Center have been tempering expectations for prospective buyers in anticipation of limited if any, tickets to be available at that point.
