The Wells Fargo Center's new 4K kinetic scoreboard is 65% larger than the previous display and is the first center-hung LED screen of its kind in the world. The scoreboard is part of a $250 million renovation of the Flyers and 76ers' home in South Philadelphia.

The world's first center-hung 4K kinetic scoreboard (a lot of words for a gargantuan scoreboard) is finally up and working at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia. 

The Philadelphia Flyers unveiled the 90,000 pound scoreboard on Wednesday, demonstrating just how enormous it appears in context with the rest of the arena and the playing surface below. 

The scoreboard was designed by New York-based ANC Sports and manufactured by Lancaster County's TAIT Kinetix. Transporting it to Philadelphia alone required 19 trucks. 

The massive LED screen is 65% larger than the previous display and will transform into multiple configurations during the course of each game. A pair of crown trusses enable the screen's multi-directional movement.

Adding the new scoreboard is the latest step in the Wells Fargo Center's multi-year renovation plan, a $250 million investment in the stadium's concourse, facilities and technology.

The Wells Fargo Center also announced the opening of the new and improved Center City Club, a fan venue decked out with two 50-foot bars and 700 square feet of LED screen. 

The new scoreboard will make its official debut on Sept. 16 for the Flyers preseason game against the New York Islanders.
