Here is a list of directions to the Philadelphia Sports Stadiums at the South Philly Sports complex from multiple different starting points inside Philadelphia and New Jersey.
From Center City:
If you are headed to a sporting event or concert, the Broad Street Line (aka the Subway or the Orange Line) is a fast, easy and cheap way to get from Center City to the Stadium Complex (Citizens Bank Park, Lincoln Financial Field, and the Wells Fargo Center). You can enter the Subway at Broad & Locust St, near the Doubletree Hotel. Take the Broad Street line southbound to AT&T Station (Formerly Pattison Station) – the last stop. Purchase tokens for your trip before you ride; it’ll save nearly $1 over the cash fare. It’s a good idea to buy your tokens for the return trip in advance. If you are using a pass, then you won’t need tokens.

The madness is over for the Wildcats. Villanova’s march towards their first NCAA Title since 1985 came to an abrupt halt on Saturday night, as the NC State Wolfpack stunned Jay Wright’s squad 71-68. The Wildcats’ season comes to an end, well short of what was expected. Finishing at 34-3 on the season, Villanova still has plenty to take pride in. This team finished with the best record in not only Villanova history, but in Big East history too. In the midst of this, they secured only the second #1 seed in team history. Despite it’s disappointing end, this season was one of the most magical in NCAA history.
‘Nova didn’t necessarily “hit the ground running” last night, as they opened the contest going 2-12 from the field, including a trio of missed layups in the first 8 minutes of the game. If not for Darrun Hilliard II, the game would’ve gotten well out of hand quickly. The senior tallied 12 of Villanova’s 28 first-half points. Junior forward Daniel Ochefu had a horrendous night from the field going 1-7, including a pair of gimme layups that were botched.
The Wildcats as usual, lived by the 3-pointer last night, knocking down 32% of their shots from beyond the arc. Darrun Hilliard nailed 60% of his 3’s, including three clutch shots late in the game to keep the ‘Cats in the game. Perhaps Villanova’s biggest detriment was their shooting % from the field. A team that averages 47% from the field, shot an abysmal 31% last night, including a 16% performance from Dylan Ennis.
On the flip-side, NC State practically outplayed Villanova all game. Led by 4 players in double-digits (including two with double-doubles), the Wolfpack dominated the paint. Anthony Barber and Abdul-Malik Abu killed Villanova, as they combined for 26 points, 15 rebounds, and 4 assists. The Wolfpack as a whole, shot 45% from the field. As time expired in the first half, Trevor Lacey made a 3-pt jumper that would turn out to be the deciding factor in this game. Despite their best efforts, the Wolfpack were unable to put the Wildcats down in the second-half, and instead allowed them to put themselves down.
Just a few weeks ago the annual Flyers Wives Carnival was held at the Wells Fargo Center and TSP was on hand for first time coverage of the event. The Flyers Wives Carnival benefits the Flyers Charities which consists of over 200 organizations throughout the Philadelphia region. This year was special as they added a 65 foot ferris wheel and a host of new attractions for the fans to enjoy.
It was a dreary, cold and ice filled day heading over to the event and I was concerned that the weather would greatly affect the event. To my surprise it seemed like a ton of fans came anyway to enjoy the attractions and get a chance to mingle with current Flyers and alumni alike. I inquired to several people if this was the usual crowd for the event, they stated it was about half the turnout they normally get, which showed me how big the event is cause the floor was packed and both concourses were crowded and a lot of fans in the seats waiting for their opportunity to meet and get autographs and pictures from the Flyers.
There were big name players such as Giroux, Simmonds, Voracek, Lecavalier, the Flyers coach Berube and Alumni such as Brian Propp and Bernie Parent interacting with the fans all over the complex. There was plenty of free attractions like the Hardest Shot, Face painting, and Jeopardy for the kids and adults to enjoy and other activities to help raise money for the Flyers Charities.
All and all if you have never gone to the Flyers Wives Carnival before I would highly recommend attending the event next year because it is a really unique opportunity to meet and interact with the Flyers and their organizations while supporting great causes.
