South Philadelphia Activities
South Philadelphia Sports Complex
South 7th St., South Philadelphia
Philly fans have earned a reputation—take, for instance, the oft-cited incident of upset Eagles fans booing Santa Claus en masse in 1968, or that the former Veterans Stadium housed an (unprecedented) makeshift court in the '90s to handle an overflow of unruly fans—for being especially passionate. If you want to experience a part of that, the South Philadelphia Sports Complex houses pretty much all of it: The Eagles play at Lincoln Financial Field, which was built just over a decade ago, around the same time as Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies play; at the Wells Fargo Center, you can catch both the Flyers and the 76ers.
