Philadelphia Sports Teams & Stadiums

Wheelchair accessible sporting events in Philadelphia.

The City of Philadelphia is home to four major professional sports teams, each of which are easily accessible to wheelchair users. Philadelphia’s Phillies, Eagles, 76ers and Flyers all play within half a mile of the same subway station, with three stadiums forming a fantastic sports complex in South Philly. With each stadium having been built after the ADA became law, accessible seating is easy to reserve and the gamely experiences for wheelchair users are largely positive. Links to the team-specific accessibility information and ticket office information is listed below.

Philadelphia Phillies (MLB)

The Philadelphia Phillies have had the same name and been in the same city since 1883, and are the oldest single-name, single-city franchise in Major League Baseball. The Phillies play ball at Citizens Bank Park, a modern facility with excellent wheelchair access. Citizens Bank Park is located at:

1 Citizens Bank Way
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19148

From Center City Philadelphia, take the Broad Street Line to AT&T Station. The subway station is fully wheelchair accessible, and one-way rides cost just $2.50 (or $2.00 with the reloadable SEPTA Key card). Walk/roll the remaining one-half mile to the ballpark.
