Countdown to 2018 Home Opener: Stadium Experience

Last year, Talen Energy Stadium won the 2017 J.D. Power Fan Experience award for Philadelphia — coming in first against the Philadelphia Eagles and the 76ers. 

Pre-game festivities have been upgraded, giving fans plenty to do before the match starts. Out on the Toyota Plaza, there are games and one-of-a-kind experiences for fans to participate in, from the Toyota Passing Challenge to meeting, and hopefully adopting, some puppies. There are tailgating games like cornhole and even a place to grab a drink.

Inside the stadium, the Union created the Union Ale House, which fans can access an hour and a half before game time. The Union have a drum line and parachute drops before the match along with giant banners to enhance the pregame experience. 

Around Talen Energy Stadium, you can see murals painted by the Union and Sons of Ben. There's also been upgraded food options added at concession stands and liquor sold at select vendors. 

All of these have been added to Talen Energy Stadium to give fans the best game day experience possible, so make sure to come out for the team's home opener against New England Revolution, presented by Oliver Heating and Cooling, on March 3. Tickets for the match can be found here.
