CITIZENS BANK PARK, LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD, WELLS FARGO CENTER & SPECTRUM

PA-638

SOUTH PHILADELPHIA SPORTS COMPLEX

CITIZENS BAK PARK: Home of the Philadelphia Phillies since 2004. From its open outfield providing fans with a fantastic view of the Philadelphia skyline to Ashburn Alley, a festive outfield entertainment area open to all, to the ringing of the Liberty Bell in center field Citizen Bank Park is "not your typical ballpark".

LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD: Philadelphia Eagles (NFL) (2003-present) Temple Owls (MAC) (2003-present) Philadelphia Union (MLS) (2010)

Lincoln Financial Field, familiarly known as "The Linc", is the home stadium of the National Football League's Philadelphia Eagles. Temple University's Division I FBS college football team also plays their home games at Lincoln Financial Field, paying the Eagles $1 million a year to do so.

The Army–Navy football game is also played at the stadium.

Like the old Vet, Lincoln Financial Field had a jail inside the stadium, that contained four cells. However, this jail was done away within two years as the level of unruly behavior had dropped considerably from the worst days of the Vet.

The Linc also plays host to several soccer games each year, and in the past two years it has played host to the NCAA lacrosse national championship.

WELLS FARGO CENTER: Philadelphia Flyers (NHL) (1996–present), Philadelphia 76ers (NBA) (1996–present), Philadelphia Wings (NLL) (1997–present), Philadelphia Soul (AFL) (2004–2008, 2011–present), Villanova Wildcats (NCAA) (Part time, 1996-present)

The Wells Fargo Center (Spectrum II (prior to construction), formerly the CoreStates Center, First Union Center and Wachovia Center) is an indoor arena located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

It is the home arena of the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League, the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association, the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League, and the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League. The Center was completed in 1996 to replace the Spectrum as the home arena of the Flyers, 76ers and Wings, on what was once the site of John F. Kennedy Stadium (originally Philadelphia Municipal Stadium) at a cost of $206 million, largely privately financed (though the city and state helped to pay for the local infrastructure).

The Center lies at the southwest corner of the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, which includes Lincoln Financial Field and Citizens Bank Park.

WACHOVIA SPECTRUM: The Spectrum, formerly known as the CoreStates Spectrum (1994–1998), First Union Spectrum (1998–2003), and Wachovia Spectrum (2003–2009) was an indoor arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Opened in the fall of 1967 as part of what is now known as the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, after several expansions of its seating capacity it eventually accommodated 18,136 for basketball and 17,380 for ice hockey, arena football, indoor soccer, and indoor lacrosse.

The Spectrum was demolished between November 2010 and May 2011, a little more than a year after the arena's final event (a concert) took place on October 31, 2009.
