It’s really happening: Bryce Harper really did that — and the Philadelphia Phillies are in the World Series for the first time since 2009.

The Fightin’ Phils are hoping to win the third World Series championship in their franchise’s 139-year history as they face the Houston Astros in a seven-game series beginning Friday, October 27, 2022.

Strap in, Philadelphia.

Here’s everything you need to know about where to watch, what to wear and the best things to eat during this wild postseason run in the “ sports capital of the universe .”

World Series Schedule

There’s no better place to watch playoff baseball than at Citizens Bank Park (CBP). The atmosphere in South Philly has been other-worldly during the 2022 playoffs, with rally-towel-waving fans seemingly willing the team to victory night after night.

The Phils and Astros split games one and two in Houston, leaving the series tied at 1-1 ahead of games three (Monday), four (Tuesday) and five (Wednesday), all taking place in South Philadelphia.

The series shifts back to Houston for games six and seven (if necessary) on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5, 2022.

Check out the full schedule below:

  • Game 1 : Philadelphia Phillies at Houston Astros, Friday, October 28, 2022, 8:03 p.m. – Phillies win 6-5.
  • Game 2 : Philadelphia Phillies at Houston Astros, Saturday, October 29, 2022, 8:03 p.m. – Astros win 5-2.
  • Game 3 : Houston Astros at Philadelphia Phillies, Tuesday, November 1, 2022, 8:03 p.m. (rescheduled from October 31 due to rain) – Phillies win 7-0.
  • Game 4 : Houston Astros at Philadelphia Phillies, Wednesday, November 2, 2022, 8:03 p.m.
  • Game 5 : Houston Astros at Philadelphia Phillies, Thursday, November 3, 2022, 8:03 p.m.

How to Attend a World Series Game at Citizens Bank Park

CBP will be rocking in the World Series as the home crowd looks to keep the Phils’ undefeated home postseason streak intact.

As expected, tickets are in extremely high demand. The Phillies held a raffle for the opportunity to purchase World Series tickets on Wednesday, October 26, 2022. Raffle winners were notified via email on Thursday, October 27, 2022.

If you weren’t a lucky winner, tickets may be available through third-party ticket platforms such as StubHub. See the Phils’ official site for more details.

The Rally for Red October Bus Tour and World Series Block Party

Ahead of the Phils’ big World Series games at Citizens Bank Park, The Rally for Red October returns to hype up the Phillies faithful.

On Monday, October 31 at 11:15 a.m., fans can head to the Comcast Center Plaza for a chance to sign the rally bus and score an exclusive cheer poster. From noon to 1 p.m., the bus — with the Phillie Phanatic and Phillies Ballgirls aboard — zips through the streets of Center City, waving to fans along the way.

And, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. before each home game, the three-hour-long World Series Block Party on Citizens Bank Way (just outside of Citizens Bank Park) offers everything from live performances to a Ferris wheel to local food trucks — no tickets required .

  • Chickie’s & Pete’s: Crabfries and baseball go together like the Phillie Phanatic and in-game high jinks. Chickie’s & Pete’s super-sized South Philly location — a short walk from Citizens Bank Park — boasts three bars, a 14-foot television (perfectly sized for armchair umpires) and the venue’s signature Crabfries®. Not in South Philly? No worries: You can also score those crave-worthy fries at a number of other Chickie’s & Pete’s locations throughout Greater Philadelphia, including in Malvern, Upper Darby and Warrington (various locations including 1526 Packer Avenue).
  • Garage: “Cold beers right heres” is the slogan at this mechanic-themed bar , which boasts an impressive canned beer selection at locations in East Passyunk and Fishtown. You can add “cheers and jeers” to that tagline during Phils’ playoff games with tuned-in fans glued to every pitch on the nearly countless TVs lining several walls (Garage Passyunk, 1231 E. Passyunk Avenue & Garage Fishtown, 100 E. Girard Avenue).
  • McGillin’s Olde Ale House : Drink in a Phils’ victory along with pitchers of red beer at the oldest bar in Philadelphia. During the Phils’ run, McGillin’s is serving up dyed-red October Pils along with Phillies-themed food specials like the grand slam appetizer sampler, the MVP meatloaf sandwich and The Vet, a grilled chicken sandwich topped with ham, salami, mixed greens and (fittingly) red wine vinaigrette (1310 Drury Street).

Where to Buy Phillies Gear in Philly

Looking to up your game day gear? You can score some sweet Phillies swag at the following locations in Philadelphia:

  • New Era Phillies Team Store at Citizens Bank Park: The team’s official apparel outpost has expanded its hours at Citizens Bank Park in anticipation of the World Series. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Where to Buy Game-Day Grub

Whether you’re tailgating or watching the game at home, food plays an essential role in every Phillies fan’s game-day ritual.

Victory tastes a little sweeter when you pair this iconic Phillies World Series run with some iconic Philly foods .

Here’s where to score some awesome game-day eats:


Success in the postseason is all about fundamentals. Don’t overthink it: Stick to the basics, and grab Philly’s most famous sandwich at one of the spots below, or check out our full guide to where to find the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia .

  • Angelo’s Pizzeria South Philadelphia : Yes, the pizza is great, but this South Philly shop also serves up some of the best cheesesteaks around. Finely sliced steak, onions and gooey cheese (your choice of Whiz, cooper sharp, American or provolone) are piled high on a seeded Sarcone’s Bakery roll (736 S. 9th Street).
  • Pat’s King of Steaks: The original home of the cheesesteak, Pat’s claim to fame is that its founder, Pat Olivieri, invented the steak sandwich in 1930. Since then, Pat’s has grown from a little stand at the southern end of South Philly’s Italian Market to one of the most famous cheesesteak shops in the world (1237 E. Passyunk Avenue).
  • Geno’s Steaks: It may be across the street from the oldest cheesesteak joint in town, but Geno’s Steaks is a formidable competitor, going roll-for-roll with Pat’s for decades and fueling friendly competition at the cheesesteak capital of the world. The key to success for the 24/7 spot? Quality thinly sliced rib-eye steak for maximum juiciness, the freshest of onions and house-made bread. Oh, and you can’t miss it, with neon lights beckoning curious travelers (1219 S. 9th Street).
  • Tony & Nick’s : Every sandwich at Tony and Nick’s Steaks — formerly the original location of Tony Luke’s — is worth digging your teeth into. The restaurant — located next to an I-95 overpass on Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia — is perfectly located for a stop on your way to tailgate (39 E. Oregon Avenue).
  • Milkboy: Both Milkboy locations are serving up The Red October Cheesesteak during all World Series games. The behemoth sandwich — clocking in at an impressive 24 inches long — is topped with long hot aioli, provolone cheese and pickled jalapeños. It is split into eight pieces for easy sharing with the rest of your lineup (Milkboy Philly, 1100 Chestnut Street & Milkboy South Street, 401 South Street).


The Phillies are on a roll. And so are these delicious Philly sandwiches that come piled high with meat, cheese and all all the fixins. You can’t go wrong with a game-day sandwich (or party tray) from these hoagie spots. Hungry for more? Check out our complete guide to where to find the best hoagies in Philadelphia .

  • PrimoHoagies: A shop originally from South Philly that’s grown immensely in recent years, PrimoHoagies has elevated the hoagie with a long list of delicious variants. There are multiple locations across the Philadelphia region, offering one-off sandwiches and plenty of catering options (Various locations including 128 S. 11th Street).
  • Cosmi’s Deli: Open since 1932, this tiny corner deli in South Philly churns out some of the best cheesesteaks, hoagies and roast pork sandwiches in Philadelphia. With more than a dozen hoagies on the menu, it can be tough to choose. Order a hoagie tray to sample them all (1501 South 8th Street).
  • Fink’s : Self-dubbed the “King of Gourmet Hoagies,” Fink’s offers its signature hoagie (helpfully named Fink’s Signature Hoagie) with two secret weapons: coteghino (fresh pork sausage) and a secret olive spread. The other gourmet hoagies, named for Northeast neighborhoods, similarly elevate traditional recipes with creative touches. The family-owned shop prides itself on offering affordable hoagie trays that can accommodate any party size (4633 Princeton Avenue).


Sturdy and salty on the outside and chewy and soft on the inside, the Philly soft pretzel is a thing of wonder. Grab a couple, a dozen or a couple dozen from any of these spots for your Phillies tailgate or World Series viewing party.

  • Philly Pretzel Factory : Yeah, it’s a chain, but Philly Pretzel Factory pretzels are quintessential. (How many tailgates have you been to where a party platter of mini pretzels are proudly displayed?) With some 30 locations in the Greater Philadelphia area alone, this is a go-to spot for Philly party planners. Want P-shaped pretzels for your party? The fine folks here have you covered (various locations including 1401 W. Passyunk Avenue).
  • Bernie’s Pretzel Bakery : Delco’s pretzel purveyors at Bernie’s Pretzel Bakery churn out doughy treats fresh from the oven daily. For all the hungry mouths you have to feed at parties and the like, go for their nugget tray to get their salty and chewy pretzels in beautiful bite-size portions (500 E. Providence Road, Aldan).

Baked Goods & Beyond

Savor a Phils’ victory while enjoying some sweet and savory treats from some of the area’s most well-known specialty shops and bakeries.

  • Stock’s Bakery: The Phils might be the experts on pounding baseballs, but Stock’s Bakery is the authority on pound cake in Philadelphia — pound cakes that get the Phillies treatment this time of year. The old-school, cash-only Port Richmond bakery is an essential stop for game day sweets (2614 E. Lehigh Avenue).
  • Termini Bros: Satisfy your cannoli craving, or chow down on Phillies-inspired red velvet cupcakes from this 100-plus-year-old Italian bakery (various locations including 1523 S. 8th Street).
  • Collegeville Italian Bakery: This Montco bake shop is churning out tomato pies adorned with Phillies logos, red pinstripe mini donuts and a do-it-yourself decorating kit for at-home baking (3846 Ridge Pike, Collegeville).
  • Di Bruno Bros.: Build your own charcuterie board, or let the experts do it for you with DiBruno Bros. casual catering menu . Beyond the meat and cheese, a game day package offers tailgate classics like sliders, wings, mac and cheese, and — of course — desserts. Phils’ fans can also score 25% off Di Bruno Bros. signature products in-store through October 31, 2022.
  • El Merkury : This Central American street food spot — with locations in Rittenhouse Square and Reading Terminal Market — is serving up special, edible-glitter-covered Phillies “P” churros at both locations. Miniature versions are also available via an online catering menu (2104 Chestnut Street & Reading Terminal Market, 1136 Arch Street).
