The arena’s original name was the Spectrum II, and in even earlier years was also known as the John F. Kennedy Stadium which cost $210 million to build. The arena is at the southwest corner of a sports complex that links a bunch of different sites together. These sites include: the Lincoln Financial Field, Citizens Bank Park, and Xfinity Live. It is clear that this is a very busy area pretty much at all times of the year because all of these sites within the complex are constantly being used. Even some Stanley Cup Finals games have taken place in the Wells Fargo Arena and NBA Finals.

The arena has also hosted two political conventions, the 2000 Reupublican National Convention, and the 2016 Democratic National Convention. The Wells Fargo arena also holds regular concerts and even WWE events. Inside of the arena the normal seating capacity is around 21,000 people but it is possible to have 21,500 people if everyone was standing up. People love to go to this arena because of all the hustle and bustle going on around it. However, if one is not a person who likes that way of life this may not be the arena for them to go to. The arena opened in 1996 and was built soon before that, therefore, the arena is very new and in great shape to hold this many sporting events, concerts, or WWE events. As the city of Philadelphia grows, the tickets for the game will most likely increase in price and it will be harder to obtain a ticket for the games because of the rising demand to go to a game.
