Supporters Club

The Sons of Ben

The Sons of Ben are an independent supporters' club for Philadelphia’s MLS team. Founded in 2007, the Sons of Ben have gained international attention for their efforts to help bring a Major League Soccer team to Philadelphia. The team is finally here, and we are ready to show America and the world that Philadelphia is America's soccer city!

If you're willing to stand and cheer for 90 minutes, come join us in the stadium and help us sing, shout and cheer the team to victory.

The Sons of Ben wear light blue and yellow to mirror the colors of the City of Philadelphia’s flag. The colors have always been part of the Sons of Ben, and are one reason why the middle of the team’s logo is light blue. This is our team and we will stand up for them no matter when or where. Ad Finem Fidelis.

Songs

 

(I’m Looking Over A) Four Leaf Clover (sung at 20:10)

 

I’m looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before.
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining, the one remaining
Is someone that I adore.
I’m looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before
(sung twice)
