Authentic, creative, passionate and competitive are just a few of the words you see on your way into the stadium. They are more than just banners that adorn PPL Park, they are what they Union stand for as a team and how we view our fans. Even though we are only a week into our “Fan Appreciation Month,” we have heard countless stories of members in our community going above and beyond for other Union fans.
Whether it be playing soccer with someone – even if you don’t speak the same language or letting someone score a goal on you who is 10 years younger than you are, it’s those qualities we seek in our ultimate supporter. Fans who have inspired others to participate in the playground build, Coats for Chester and the blood drive this year. Union fans are truly defined by their own actions and words.
A Fans’ Fan is someone who not only the team, but the community believes embodies what this organization stands for, and what it truly means to be a Union Fan.
