There will be a new payment system at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, making all transactions easier and faster for consumers.
Wells Fargo Center has selected Shift4 to process payments for all online and in‐person ticketing, food and beverage concessions, and retail sales. Home to the Philadelphia Flyers and Philadelphia 76ers, Wells Fargo Center was ranked No. 2 in the U.S. and No. 6 in the world for number of tickets sold at a venue of its size in 2019. The venue hosts more than 250 events and millions of fans each year.
“We are always striving to implement new ways to improve our fans’ experience, and Shift4’s technology will make transactions in Wells Fargo Center easier than ever,” said Dan Wise, senior vice president of corporate partnerships, Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. “Shift4 has built a reputation across sports and entertainment for enhancing fans’ commerce experience and we look forward to building on this partnership.”
Under the agreement, Shift4 will become the official payment processor for Wells Fargo Center and the Flyers. The company also assumes naming rights for the Center City Club on the event level, which Shift4 plans to rename as the “Shift4 Club.”
“Wells Fargo Center is central to Philly sports fans and we’re committed to powering an enhanced, modern event experience for them,” added Anthony Perez, Shift4’s head of enterprise. “Our end‐to‐end commerce solution simplifies venue operations, reduces costs, and improves the overall fan experience.”
Wells Fargo Center is undergoing a multi‐year, $300-plus million transformation project and this partnership with Shift4 is part of the Center’s investment to deploy advanced technologies throughout the arena. Shift4 will process the concessions and retail transactions beginning with the 2022‐2023 Flyers and 76ers seasons.
