76ers to hold full capacity starting June 2nd
We’re so back. The Philadelphia 76ers just announced that starting June 2nd, the Wells Fargo Center will be at full capacity for all games going forward. Currently, the Sixers can hold 50% capacity, which was allowed starting last Friday. If the Sixers-Wizards series goes to five games, there will be over 19,000 fans in attendance.
Having full capacity will be huge for home-court advantage, especially with how passionate Philly fans get. Numerous playoff teams are beginning to hold close to or full capacity for their games. like the Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks. The only team currently at full capacity besides the 76ers is the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Phillies will likely be following suit shortly. With Philadelphia’s mandatory mask mandate being lifted on June 28th at the latest. Hopefully, the Sixers can finish Washington in four games on the road and host game one of the semifinals for their first game at full capacity.
