Philadelphia’s football, baseball, basketball and hockey teams all play in stadiums located just a short ride away from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and Center City. This district of the city, called the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, stands out when compared to many other cities because all venues are situated in one place within easy reach of each other. Public transportation runs right to the complex and extra lines can be added and discounted passes can be offered for groups.

The staff in each of the three arenas and the multi-faceted entertainment complex is knowledgeable on how to manipulate and transform the spaces to create seamless event experiences that can together accommodate more than 130,000 people.
