The Wells Fargo Center Will Return to Full Capacity June 2nd According to Recent Statement!
Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations for Wells Fargo Center, released the following statement after Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced that Wells Fargo Center will be able to host fans at full capacity beginning Wednesday, June 2, in time for a potential Game 5 in the 76ers-Wizards playoff series. Masks will still be required for guests.
“Opening our doors to more than 20,000 fans is an important moment for our entire city. At the beginning of the pandemic, the Wells Fargo Center was one of the first and most significant buildings in Philadelphia to close its doors, so our full re-opening sends a clear message that our city is back.”
Over the last year, Wells Fargo Center has undergone a comprehensive health and safety transformation. Earlier this year, the venue was awarded the WELL Health-Safety Rating for Facility Operations and Management, a widely-respected, evidence-based, third-party-verified rating of the venue’s health and safety protocols. The arena also recently completed an $11 million renovation of its HVAC systems, installing a new, state-of-the-art air filtration system that replaces all the air in the arena’s seating bowl every 30 minutes.
