Wells Fargo Center to get giant new transforming 4K scoreboard

The Sixers and Flyers have put a highly entertaining product on the floor/ice as of late and soon they'll have a bright new scoreboard to match.

Comcast Spectacor partnered with ANC and are calling the new scoreboard "the first-ever Kinetic 4K center-hung entertainment system," which will contain 65 percent more LED real estate than the scoreboard currently hanging in the Center. Imagine how many more fans will get on the dance cam each game.

This isn't your grandpa's old scoreboard from the Spectrum. The new screens will have the "unprecedented ability to transform and be configured in a variety of formats to best highlight the action below. Complementing the center-hung display are two massive crown trusses designed to  create a captivating experience with multi-directional movement. Never before has an arena scoreboard had the ability to extend and compress 4mm LED technology in such an adaptive manner."

“Comcast Spectacor is proud to highlight the next phase of the Wells Fargo Center’s ‘Transformation 2020’ initiative with the first Kinetic 4K center-hung ever to be installed in a professional sports venue,” said Valerie Camillo, President of Business Operations, Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. “Together with technology partners like ANC and Comcast, the Wells Fargo Center continues to innovate and further our commitment to be the most technologically advanced arena in the world.”

If you've been to a Flyers or Sixers game at the WFC recently you've noticed some of the many changes in the upper concourse as well as much of the seating. This scoreboard is just the latest part of the $250 million in upgrades being made to the Center as part of the Transformation 2020 initiative.

The impressive new scoreboard is scheduled to be ready for both the home openers of the Flyers and Sixers seasons in 2019-2020.

You can watch a video rendering of the new board above and check out some photos below.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
