Philadelphia Union announced today the club will launch an inaugural Fan Advisory Board that will begin regularly scheduled meetings in June. The board will consist of 15-20 elected members and meet throughout the year at Talen Energy Stadium. Applications are available here and must be submitted by April 13.
“One of my initial goals for the club was to truly submerse ourselves in our dedicated fan base,” Union Chief Business Officer Tim McDermott said. “Our fans are at the heart of what we do and we want them to play an integral role in helping shape the future of our club. This group will be an extension of our strategy and marketing department and will help accelerate the growth of our brand and amazing fan base.”
The Philadelphia Union Fan Advisory Board will be made up of Union fans from all segments of the club’s fan base. The objective of the group is to provide fan feedback and input to the club on a variety of topics to help create the best possible fan experience in 2016 and beyond.
It will consist of 15-20 board members who will be voted on by the Union Front Office. The board will meet regularly at Talen Energy Stadium for topics of discussion that will include items such as ticket programs, in-stadium experience, gamedays, community initiatives, concessions, merchandising and much more. Each elected member will be committed to a minimum 12-month term and required to attend six-to-eight meetings per year.
The Philadelphia Union return to action on April 2 at Chicago Fire. Kick is scheduled for 5 p.m. and will be broadcast on The Comcast Network. The club returns to Talen Energy Stadium on Friday, April 8 against Orlando City SC. Single game and group tickets are still available by visiting PhiladelphiaUnion.com/tickets or by calling 1-877-21-UNION.
