The inaugural River Cup in 2011 sparked a rivalry between the Philadelphia Union staff and the Sons of Ben, its loyal legion of supports. The Union brings out their front office and technical staff, while the Sons of Ben counter with their most talented players to win the coveted championship title.
With over 1,000 people expected to attend, this year's River Cup Fall Festival is an opportunity to support the Philadelphia Union Foundation initiatives. All proceeds from the River Cup event go directly to support the efforts of the Philadelphia Union Foundation. The Foundation continues to focus on building safe fields, teaching life skills, providing nutrition programming and ensuring kids are having fun along the way.
