If you haven’t heard already, there are three sporting events happening in South Philly tonight.
The action begins at 6pm with the Flyers home opener. The Vancouver Canucks will take the ice at the Wells Fargo Center for the early start. The game, which was original scheduled for 7pm, was moved up to stagger the insanity.
At 8p, Mexico and Germany face off on the pitch at Lincoln Financial Field. The Men’s National Team Soccer Friendly is expecting a packed crowd in the 70,000 arena.
Seven minutes after that, Aaron Nola will throw out the first pitch in Game 2 of the NLCS Championship at Citizens Bank Park. The Philadelphia Phillies are one game up on Arizona Diamondbacks after last night’s 5-3 win.
No one is denying that the complex isn’t going to be insane. But they are trying to help. The Philadelphia Parking Authority has stepped up with free parking around the city. SEPTA teamed up with Bud Light and Budweiser to give free subway rides. Hopefully these options provide a little relief to fans who chose to drive down and park in the stadium lots.
If you are driving, it’s worth arriving extra early to get in and parked before the gridlock. The lots open at 3pm. Xfinity Live and Live Casino are two nearby locations to spend time before the stadium opens. The Phillies Postseason Block Party starts at 5pm with free rides on the giant Ferris wheel, bungee jump, mobile hitting station and face painters plus music by Go Go Gadjet and DJ HBK.
With all of this in your future today, here’s a couple hacks for getting down there with ease:
