A rivalry match for the last regular season game at home? We know you will be there, and here are the reasons why.

Celebrate Union’s playoff berth at the last home game of the regular season
Be there on Sunday to celebrate the Union officially clinching its first playoff berth since 2011!
Barring conceding 12 goals to Red Bulls, the Union will be headed to the post-season and Sunday could be the last time the Union play at home this season. After the match members of the team will address the crowd and celebrate their season. You just have to be there!
Keegan Rosenberry and Andre Blake creeping in on club records
If rookie Keegan Rosenberry plays 90 minutes on Sunday he will become the first rookie ever to play a full 3,060 minutes in a season, and the sixth field player to ever accomplish this feat.
Andre Blake is on the cusp of setting a record as well. The last time the Union faced off against New York Red Bulls on Oct.1st, Blake recorded five saves against their Eastern Conference rival, meaning he could be looking at a new franchise record by the end of Sunday’s match. Blake is just five saves away from passing Zac MacMath for the franchise record for most saves in a season.
With two players on the verge of making history, it’s a no brainer to be there on Sunday.
The unwavering energy
It's a Union-Red Bulls match; you know the drill. The drama. The intensitity. The rivalry; all culminate on Sunday afternoon. And you can’t talk about a Union-Red Bulls match without talking about the electric atmosphere that comes along with it.
No one can forget Jesse Marsch’s outburst during Open Cup play, or how the Union rallied from being down 2-0 (twice) against Red Bulls at home to record a result. And if Oct.1st’s atmosphere was any indication of what Sunday’s match will feel like – it’s destined to be one for the books.
Mo in the 18?
During his press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Jim Curtin said there have been talks about switching up some faces in the lineup and even brought up Maurice Edu’s name.
Curtin said that seeing Mo in the Starting XI could be a “possible option” for the Union, which would make Sunday’s match Mo’s season debut. Who wouldn’t want to be there for that?
Sunday’s match is trending towards a sellout so make sure to grab your tickets quick!
