“And Watch Our Eagles Fly!” Where to Watch and Celebrate the Eagles Home Opener in Philly

From reliving their Super Bowl glory to a free Shawn Mendes concert, Philly is going all out for our Birds!

Less than seven months ago, Broad Street flooded with joy in a sea of green and E-A-G-L-E-S chants. On Thursday, September 6, the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles (that feels so good to type!) return to begin their 2018 season at Lincoln Financial Field.


Don’t have tickets to the game? You can still celebrate and watch with Eagles fans throughout the city at these amazing family-friendly events: relive the magic of last year’s Super Bowl with re-watch parties, pose with the Lombardi trophy, or even take in a free concert with Shawn Mendes! There’s so much going on, so let’s kickoff the season right, and celebrate in style!
