The fan experience at Flyers games is going to a new level in the 2019-20 season.
SugarHouse Casino and PlaySugarHouse.com have become the official sportsbook partners for the Flyers and the Wells Fargo Center.
The agreement is a multi-year deal and will place two sports lounges inside the arena, where fans can watch the Flyers and other sporting events "on nearly 100 screens throughout the lounges, all while betting on the action via their mobile devices," a press release stated Wednesday.
"With Pennsylvania on the forefront of legalized sports gaming, we and our SugarHouse partners are excited to elevate the game day experience at the Wells Fargo Center in a unique way," Valerie Camillo, Flyers and Wells Fargo Center president of business operations, said in the release. "These new lounges will bring the energy and excitement of PlaySugarHouse.com, a market-leading sportsbook, into the arena and introduce another step in our transformation to become one of the most technologically-advanced arenas in the world."
Via the release, here are details on the sports lounges:
The sportsbook-style lounges will be in two locations in the building — both on the main concourse and on the arena’s top level. The nearly 6,500-square-foot-lounge located on the arena’s top level will face the bowl so fans can watch the live action as it happens. The fun and open sportsbook-like environment will also feature other spaces for fans to cheer on the action while betting online and enjoying Philly’s favorite foods and drinks. Each space features club chairs, bar and table seating, as well as a custom 22 feet long by eight feet tall LED video wall that will anchor the viewing area, which has its own dedicated seating area. There are also dozens of live action screens, measuring 86”, 65”, and 50”, respectively.
The main concourse level lounge is located in the completely redesigned south end of the arena and is approximately 5,680 square feet. This exciting space features 10, 86” screens grouped throughout the seating areas, mixed with odds boards and an additional 16, 65” monitors at the bar. SugarHouse ambassadors will also be in both lounges to assist guests in registering for the online sportsbook so they can get in on the action.
The sports lounges will debut for the Flyers' home opener Oct. 9 against the Devils.
"We are thrilled with this sponsorship deal to become the official sportsbook of the Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center," Mattias Stetz, the chief operating officer of Rush Street Interactive, the operator of sports betting at SugarHouse Casino and PlaySugarHouse.com, said in the release. "Philly has some of the best sports fans in the country, and we look forward to hosting them in our sports lounges at the stunning Wells Fargo Center."
