The tickets are not bad. $40-50 to for decent seats. The upper level has $10 seats; a steal. Villanova and Temple games at the Wells Fargo center are more expensive and they are like half the price of the Flyers. Just got pretty decent seats for Friday against the Hawks. Last night the place seemed fairly full by sixer standards. Will see how full the game is Friday. They really should have won that game last night

Still playing well...

It's only 3.98% actually plus the state and sales tax is cheaper in PA/Philly

It appears they will be atleast a 2nd round exit this season since they will win their division and get the 2 or 3 seed. The only competition they have in the east is the bulls, Heat, and the Magic.

So that means for $74 I should really get a good seat. But my cousin doesn't want to go because she is a Boston fan and she doesn't want to waste gas money, parking money to go down there and see them get blown out by the sixers in March.

Take the BSL, 10 minutes and cheap; dont worry about parking


Last night I was in the 10th row for $50. They looked as good as any team in the NBA in the second half, the 3rd quarter was awesome and their D in the 4th was amazing.

The only thing i don't like about having good seats at the sixers game is how they may put you up on the BIG SCREEN during timeouts. I could be out creeping with another girl and one of my main girl's family members can have tickets and see me on the screen-lol

I never understood why they do that silly mess during timeouts. When you went to the Spectrum you didn't have to worry about being put on BLAST for the whole arena to see

Nice. I haven't been to an NBA game in over 10 years since leaving Chicago.

However, back in the late 90's in the old Chicago stadium my wife's co-worker had 2nd row center court in a low balcony. $22 a ticket to see jordan etc. in their primes is a cherished memory.

KC has a 1% wage tax, I wouldn't even want to pay that.
