Sports Complex Event Calendar

SCSSD strives to keep residential neighbors of the Sports Complex well informed. The Philadelphia Sports Complex includes three world-class sports venues with a combined capacity of over 133,000 seats. These venues host approximately 380 events, over 7 million visitors, and 5.5 million vehicle trips each year. Traffic congestion associated with Sports Complex events can make local travel for residents quite challenging, especially when there is a combination of events on the same day. Knowing when this might occur is a value to our neighbors.

Since August 2003, SCSSD has and will continue to prepare monthly event calendars summarizing sports complex activities, associated attendance estimates, and related community impacts. A “Neighborhood Impact Alert Level” is assigned to each day. A high level, shown with a STAR, warns of high traffic congestion in the area. A medium level, represented with a SQUARE, predicts a moderate impact, while a low level, represented by a CIRCLE, indicates a minimal increase in traffic for that day. The calendars also include specific travel alerts such as planned road closures and detours in the vicinity.

Each month, SCSSD mails event calendars to all residential households and businesses located within the SCSSD boundaries. In 2005, at the suggestion of Community Directors, SCSSD added an advance preview to the mailing, showing neighbors an additional two months of expected events. These calendars are used by various stakeholders in the Sports Complex area for planning purposes.
