Our 2022 MLS Eastern Conference Champion Philadelphia Union open their 2023 season up against the Columbus Crew at Subaru Park in Chester this Saturday night. Head Coach Jim Curtain and the Union are coming off the best year in franchise history and looking forward to building on that momentum this season, starting on Saturday night when they take on the Crew at 7:30p.

2023 also marks 15 years since the founding of the Philadelphia Union. The club kicked off their inaugural season in 2010 as an expansion team winning their first home match in Philadelphia in front of 35,000 fans (me being one of them) against DC United. Sebastian Le Toux had the hat-trick in the 3-2 Union victory.

Home field for the Union is beautiful, Subaru Park, situated adjacent to the Commodore Barry Bridge along the Chester, Pa – DELCO – waterfront. Being a former soccer player myself, when news broke of a Major League Soccer Franchise coming to the Philadelphia area, I was pumped!

With 17 regular season home games spanning 9+ months of the year, it is one of the longest schedules in professional sports. That also means there are a bunch of great opportunities to take the family out for some DOOP’n! Special shout out to the Sons of Ben – the diehard group of Union fans that keep the energy pumping through Subaru Park from whistle to whistle every single match.  You guys & gals Rock!

Here are some of my favorite moments from my time at Subaru Park
