The gates to PPL park opened Sunday afternoon and 18,000 plus fans stormed inside Philadelphia’s newest home for soccer. Sunday’s game against the Seattle Sounders sold out in just under 4 hours – no one wanted to miss their chance at witnessing this historical event. Not even the 100 degree temperatures put a damper on the day’s events, which included a ribbon cutting ceremony with Chester’s, Mayor Butler. Sunday’s inaugural home opener had all the perfect ingredients for a memorable night including confetti, smoke bombs, and also fireworks. But the perfect ingredient came in the form of three goals and a win. It’s not everyday you go to work knowing you’ll be helping to open a brand new stadium.  June 27th seemed like a lifetime away when I joined the Union organization three months ago…and now it’s already in the past. However the events that occurred Sunday proved to be historic not only for the soccer team but the city of Chester. Take a look below at the newest pre game introduction video I put together for the home opener sunday. This video aired in the stadium moments before the players took to the field.

  1. i dont play soccer because its fun, i play it because of the passion for the game, because without it there is nothing and it is like a headache when you cant play. Soccer isnt just my sport it is my way of life and my passion!
