How StageRight Helped the Wells Fargo Center Upgrade Their Seating

March 3, 2020

The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a multi-purpose arena that has a capacity of around 20,000 people for both hockey and basketball games. There’s a larger capacity for basketball compared to hockey because of the difference in seating requirements, but we’ll talk more about that later.

It originally opened in 1996 and is currently home to the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers, and the NLL’s Philadelphia Wings. Villanova’s Men’s Basketball team also plays at the Wells Fargo Center for games where larger crowds are expected.

As part of their renovations in 2019, the facility wanted to update the seating experience for fans. Over the past 20+ years, fan expectations have increased and technological advances have made this better experience possible.

Being a multi-sport venue puts a premium on conversion. They need to be able to convert the space quickly to meet the demands of all the different events they host. Speaking of the conversion between hockey and basketball specifically, the venue really wanted a dual-rise system to make this switch much easier. The most important thing to them, before deciding to move forward with StageRight, was the proven operation of our TeleMatic 100DX2. Knowing that this product is currently in operation at venues like TD Garden, Pepsi Center, Staples Center, Little Caesars Arena, and T-Mobile Arena, made it an easy decision for the Wells Fargo Center.

In addition to the TeleMatic 100DX2, they also purchased our TeleMatic 100 Riser. The difference is that the TeleMatic 100 isn’t a dual-rise. Click here to see a video about how the dual-rise works.

The installation of this project went extremely well and we were able to replace their outdated systems efficiently. There was a well-developed plan that was executed perfectly. Since the installation, the team at Wells Fargo Center are thrilled with the results. Not only are the conversions faster, but the quality of the fan experience is far superior compared to what their old system provided.

We’d like to thank everyone at the Wells Fargo Center for allowing us to be part of their current and future success!
