Philadelphia Union secure Top Seed in the East for MLS Cup Playoffs


Since the first day of preseason training, there has been a single goal, one mission on the mind of every player. Turn what could have been into what we won for Philly.

Jim Curtin’s Philadelphia Union have improved each year for the past five seasons. 2020 saw the club finish with the best record in MLS and lift the Supporters’ Shield. 2021 brought a trip to the Eastern Conference Final. In 2022, the bar is set even higher: Bring the MLS Cup to Philadelphia.

With a disruptive and aggressive playing style that reflects our city and intimidates opponents, with the top defense in the league, with an unstoppable trifecta of offensive weapons that relentlessly play for each other, for the badge and for the city, the Philadelphia Union are ready for anything.

The Union have officially clinched their fifth consecutive trip to the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs and further solidified their status as one of the best clubs in Major League Soccer.

Now the club will aim to secure as many home playoff matches as they can because this team loves nothing more than bringing winning soccer to the Philly faithful.

The last two seasons have seen incredible accomplishments, but this year’s squad look to pen their own playoff legacy and they know that means bringing the postseason to Philadelphia and showing all challengers exactly what that means.

Time to join the fight, Philly. Nothing shakes a stadium like a Jakob Glesnes rocket from 40 yards out.

Nothing makes you scream with pride like a crunching Jose Martinez tackle.

And absolutely nothing matches the beauty of a playoff game on the banks of the Delaware River in Subaru Park.

So plug in to the joy: We are throwing the biggest Party in Philly, and the whole city is invited.

It’s Playoff Time in Philadelphia.
