Union and New York Red Bulls competing in Demolition Derby on June 18

There are always games on the calendar you circle for whatever reason they may be. It may be a cool giveaway, a special event or just a day you have off from work. And then there are the rivalry games, the one's you're going to no matter what. For the Union, that day is June 18; Union vs. New York Red Bulls at 5:00 p.m. 

When the Union host Red Bulls, there will be plenty of fan activities around Talen Energy Stadium for fans to get ready for the match. Below are just some of the activities fans can participate in, in what the Union are calling "Demolition Derby."

Car Smash Fundraiser, benefitting Philadelphia Union Foundation

Out on Toyota Plaza, the Philadelphia Union Foundation will have a car smash fundraiser. Fans can take a sledgehammer to a New York Red Bull themed car with a small donation to the Foundation. 

Kids Pinata Smash, benefitting Philadelphia Union Foundation

We don't want the adults to have all the fun. In addition to the Car Smash, kids will be able to take a swing at some pinatas out on Toyota Plaza. Philadelphia Union Foundation will also be collecting a small donation for the pinata smash. 

Rid the Red with RushOrderTees.com and American Red Cross

On game day, we want as little red as possible in Philadelphia. Fans can bring any red piece of clothing they own and exchange it for an exclusive Union t-shirt from RushOrderTees.com, or receive a discount from the Union Shop. Fans can exchange their shirt at any designated Union Merch Shop around Talen Energy Stadium or at the RushOrderTees.com location on Toyota Plaza. All red clothing will then be donated to the American Red Cross. But please, do not donate any Phillies gear, we love our Philly sports teams. 

Sons of Ben Pre-Game Bonfire and Halftime Ceremony

Before the match, join the Sons of Ben before they march toward Talen Energy Stadium. They'll make a pit stop at Lot B VIP, where they will hold a pregame bonfire for all fans. During halftime, there will also be a special ceremony fans of both teams are sure to enjoy. 

And More

More event details will be released as we get closer to game day, which will make the Demolition Derby even more unique and exciting. June 18 is going to be the game you absolutely don't want to miss.
