Philadelphia Union today announced a new, multi-year partnership with KINETIC, making them the Official Physical Therapy Partner of the Philadelphia Union, Subaru Park, and WSFS Bank Sportsplex and the first tenant in the Sportsplex.
Serving Chester County, Delaware County, and Montgomery County, KINETIC inspires individuals to reach their full potential through movement. Prioritizing community and connection, they help their clients experience improved movement and lifestyle through pioneering, life-impacting services.
“We are thrilled to welcome KINETIC as our Official Physical Therapy Partner,” said Charlie Slonaker, Chief Revenue Officer at the Philadelphia Union. “This partnership allows for the continued prioritization of player well-being, as well as our joint commitment to providing top-notch facilities and services to the community. As the first tenant in the Sportsplex, KINETIC’S services will not only be available to Union players but those who participate in recreation at the Sportsplex year-round.”
“Partnering with the Philadelphia Union is an honor," said Dr. Darren Rodia, CEO of KINETIC. "The popularity of the MLS has never been greater, and the Union is one of the shining stars of the league. Their commitment to excellence is second to none and KINETIC welcomes the opportunity to add value to the already state-of-the-art Sportsplex."
As part of this collaboration, KINETIC will serve as the presenting partner of the three premier outdoor grass fields at the state-of-the-art WSFS Bank Sportsplex in Chester, PA. These three fields consist of the entitlement of the championship grass field that will act as the primary training field for the Union first team, and the two additional grass fields that will be utilized by Philadelphia Union II and the Philadelphia Union Academy. Additionally, they will sponsor the “Player Pathway Program,” a supplemental invite-only program, where identified players practice under the Philadelphia Union methodology. The KINETIC logo will be featured on the front of the kits and travel hoodies of players in the program in which roughly 2,000 kids have participated in since its inception.
Additionally, KINETIC will serve as the presenting sponsor of the Union’s “Kids Club,” an exclusive club for the club’s youngest union fans that offer members unique experiences and special events throughout the season. This sponsorship includes prominent branding on the team’s mascot, Phang, and on Phang's inflatables on the plaza of Subaru Park during each regular season home game. Each member of Kids Club will also receive a co-branded gift provided by KINETIC.
Under the partnership, KINETIC will staff, operate, and market a retail KINETIC location within the WSFS Bank Sportsplex, making them the first tenant in the Sportsplex and establishing them as the premier Physical Therapy partner of the Philadelphia Union community. Additionally, KINETIC will be available for those renting or participating in sports within the WSFS Bank Sportsplex Complex year-round.
