Few sports can match the pace and intensity of professional hockey. With flying pucks and big hits, fast action and close scores, NHL games are sure to excite people of all ages and interests. For hockey in Philly, look no further than the Philadelphia Flyers!
Founded in 1967, coinciding with an expansion of the National Hockey League, the Flyers were one of six new teams added to the league. The team is currently part of the Metropolitan Division of the NHL’s Eastern Conference. Over the years, the Philadelphia Flyers have the most conference finals appearances of all 24 expansion teams, and are in second place among expansion teams for the most playoff appearances.
The team plays home games at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center – the same complex as the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers – a massive arena with over 19,000 seats for hockey fans! The Center opened in 1996, and offers a wide range of amenities for visitors. Both the main concourse and mezzanine levels are packed with options for food and drink, including ice cream, beer vendors, BBQ, sushi, and of course, plenty of options for a famous Philly cheesesteak.
And speaking of groups, the best way to get your team, church group, scout troop, or any other gathering to a Philadelphia Flyers game is by charter bus! Renting a Philadelphia motorcoach removes so much of the hassle of planning transportation for multiple people, wrestling with more than one vehicle, navigating traffic, finding parking, and all of those other struggles that come with traveling as a group. When you rent a charter bus, you travel in comfort and style, getting your group right to a Flyers game with ease. Start planning your Philadelphia Flyers bus trip right away!
