Union Announce New Premium Seating Options

CHESTER, Pa (January 7, 2010)— With less than three months to go before Philadelphia Union’s first-ever First Kick, the expansion Major League Soccer club announces they have sold out their Club Seats—three sections in the heart of the midfield along the team benches sideline.

As a result, Philadelphia Union will now establish a waiting list for Founding Members. Philadelphia Union are also now introducing three new ways for corporate clients and supporters to get even closer to the action. Designed to accommodate business entertaining or committed supporters, each plan takes premium seat holders down to field level, at the core of the game and the energy of MLS competition.

“The response from our supporters has been extremely gratifying and momentum keeps building,” said Philadelphia Union President Tom Veit. “True to our commitment to create a unique and exciting fan experience, every seat in the house will be close to the action. In addition, we have created these new plans to bring our fans and clients as close to the intensity of MLS soccer as you can get, combined with first class personal service.”
