Fans who attend Flyers and Sixers games at the Wells Fargo Center will find new food and beverage options.
The Wells Fargo Center is welcoming back fans at 100% capacity after COVID-19 restrictions kept the game-day experience limited for more than a year. Fans will need to wear masks inside the arena, but they'll be allowed to take them off while eating and drinking.
The Wells Fargo Center will feature several new vendors this season. Additionally, Aramark, the arena's concessionaire, and existing vendors will offer new menu items.
"We want every single part of the fan experience at Wells Fargo Center to be top-notch, and that definitely includes great food and beverages," said Valerie Camillo, president of business operations for the Wells Fargo Center. "In partnership with Aramark, we've got a fantastic list of offerings for our fans this season, so no matter what your taste is, you can eat and drink well at Wells Fargo Center this season."
Fans will find new branded concepts at stands throughout the arena's main concourse and mezzanine levels, with rotating menus at several of these locations to keep options fresh.
Below are some of the highlights of the new offerings:

The Wells Fargo Center also is introducing several new features to simplify and expedite food and beverage sales at the arena this season.
Armrests throughout the arena will have QR codes that enable fans to order their food and drinks directly from their phones. Fans seated on the Club Level can have food and drinks delivered straight to their seats.
All food and beverage purchases at the Wells Fargo Center will be cashless, meaning fans only will be able to purchase items using a card or a mobile payment platform such as Apple Pay or Google Pay.
