Flyers reportedly could have fans at next home game on March 7th

Wells Fargo Center

The Philadelphia Flyers got back in the win column at the Wells Fargo Center, but it’s just not the same without fans. However, that could soon be changing.

Last weekend, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the Sixers, Flyers, and Wells Fargo Center sent Philadelphia a proposal to have 5,000 fans in attendance for games beginning sometime next month.

When could Flyers fans return to the Wells Fargo Center?

It’s looking that might be nearing reality.

On Thursday morning, NBC’s John Clark tweeted that the Sixers, Flyers, and Wells Fargo Center are preparing for limited fans. Clark also said that the city of Philadelphia says that they will likely ease restrictions next week.

The Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi followed that up with a report by tweeting that the Flyers could have a limited number of fans at their next home game, which is on Sunday, March 7th against the Washington Capitals.

If that is the case, it would be nearly one year to the day that the Flyers had fans at their game. Their final game of the 2019-20 NHL regular season was on March 10th in front of over 19,000 fans at the Wells Fargo Center.

Surely, they won’t have anywhere near that number of fans this year – maybe even just 10% of capacity. However, this is exciting news for Flyers fans that want to attend games. It would be safe to assume that the Flyers will have a very limited number of fans in the building. Season ticket holders will likely have first dibs.

Claude Giroux reminded everyone just how good he is Wednesday night

If the Flyers are unable to get clearance for fans at their next home game, they’ll have a few more opportunities in March. That game on the 7th starts a four-game homestand through the 13th. After being away the next week, the Flyers have another four-game homestand from the 22nd to the 27th.

There are still hurdles that need to be cleared, but Flyers fans could soon be allowed back at the Wells Fargo Center.
