Preseason | Union hit the pitch in Clearwater

After a morning of travel from the City of Brotherly Love to Clearwater, Florida, Philadelphia Union took to the pitch at Joe DiMaggio Sports Complex on Monday evening.

The first official on-field session of the preseason saw the team stretch out their legs and continue to build team chemistry. That will be tested early as the 2024 preseason presented by Cintron will see the Union in five preseason friendlies starting with Brazilian side Clube de Regatas do Flamengo in a FC Series preseason friendly match at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida on Sunday, January 21 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
