Things to Do Near Lincoln Financial Field Before & After an Event

Philadelphia football fans are as passionate as they come, and an average of 70,000 attend every Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field. Also known as The Linc, the team’s home stadium has a lot to offer including three open plaza corners with sweeping views of the city and shields from noise and inclement weather to enhance the game-watching experience. (This may be part of the reason it was chosen to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.) While sports events and concerts are the stadium’s main attractions, locals and visitors alike have plenty pre- and post-game options to dine, drink and merry-make in the surrounding South Philly neighborhood, which are easily accessible by both car and public transportation.
