Your Guide to PPL Park

Come Sunday, Philadelphia Union will have a place to call home. PPL Park will open as the ninth soccer-specific stadium in Major League Soccer when the Union take on Seattle Sounders FC at 5:00pm on Sunday, June 27th, another historic moment in a season of firsts. 

As with the opening of any new facility, there will be plenty of questions from fans and wrinkles to iron out from match to match. But philadelphiaunion.com is here to help as your source for all things PPL Park. 

Here's a quick hit list to get you ready for Sunday: 


Take the SEPTA R2 Regional Rail line to the Chester Transportation Center (6th & Welch Street). There will be a free shuttle service to PPL Park and back, with service beginning four hours prior to game time. Fans will need to show a SEPTA ticket to get on shuttle buses. Following matches, shuttles returning to the Chester Transportation Center will be parked along Flower Street, which is immediately to the right after exiting via the PPL EnergyPlus gate (main gate).


Season ticket holders with pre-paid parking passes should park in the color-coded stadium lot that corresponds with the color of your pass. All other fans should park in offsite lots. Lots D and E are within walking distance from PPL Park, while a free shuttle service is offered to and from Lots F and G. 


Free shuttles from lots F and G will begin running five hours prior to game time. Shuttles from the Chester Transportation Center will begin running four hours prior to game time. Following matches, fans returning to Lot F or the Chester Transportation Center should pick up a shuttle along Flower Street, which is immediately to the right after exiting via the PPL EnergyPlus gate (main gate). Fans returning to Lot G should pick up a shuttle along Seaport Drive, which runs alongside the stadum's perimeter outside of the Crozer-Premier and PPL EnergyPlus gates.

See you on Sunday!
