BANG THE DRUM!!!
Philadelphia Union are headed back to the Eastern Conference Final for the second consecutive season after knocking off FC Cincinnati at Subaru Park tonight.
Tickets for the match are already on sale but you better hurry because this is the hottest ticket in Philly!
All season long, the Union have had the best defense and sauciest attack in Major League Soccer, and they brought both to the party Thursday night. Even without captain Ale Bedoya in the starting lineup, the Union made the most of an epic Subaru Park atmosphere and gave the people what they desperately wanted: Another chance at a trip to the MLS Cup final.
Only one year ago, the Union rolled through the playoffs before losing multiple starters for the Eastern Conference Final against NYCFC. Still, the team pushed the eventual Cup champions to their limit and nearly pulled off an unbelievable victory.
Now, with the squad healthy and locked in, the Union will once again host the conference final against either NYC — again — or CF Montreal.
Jim Curtin’s side is as good as it gets in MLS: Nobody in the league scored more goals, allowed fewer, or accumulated more points. But the regular season was just the start, and now this team wants to show off in front of the Philly faithful again on October 30.
The atmosphere at Subaru Park has been a primary driver of the Union’s success over the past few seasons, and tonight’s was one of the most incredible scenes Philly sports has ever seen. A pre-match concert with Philly legend Freeway gave way to one of the loudest games ever played in the City of Brotherly Love, and in 10 days the fans will be even louder, more raucous, and more ready to help carry their team to the promised land.
Don’t miss out on one of the best seasons Philly sports has ever seen — get your tickets now because soon they will be gone!
The Union face off against the winner of NYCFC and CF Montreal on October 30 at Subaru Park, with the time and TV details to be determined at a later date.
