The health and safety of our guests, employees, athletes, and entertainers is our top priority. That’s why The Center has invested millions of dollars, consulted with public health experts, and implemented dozens of new safety protocols to keep everyone as safe as possible.
We can’t wait to welcome you back for 76ers games!
