Countdown to 2018 Home Opener: David Accam

Philadelphia Union acquired midfielder David Accam from the Chicago Fire on Jan. 19. Since coming to the club, Accam already knows what it means to be a part of the Union family and shares the same vision with the team.  

"I have wanted to play somewhere with identity and culture for a long time, and I really have that here and I already understand what it means to be part of the family," Accam said.

Primarily a winger, Accam joined the Union following three seasons with the Fire, over which he scored 33 goals and added 15 assists and is one of just six players to total that record. Accam has also scored at least nine goals in each of his three campaigns with Chicago.

Internationally, Accam has registered nine caps for Ghana, making his debut in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. Last summer, he appeared against Union teammate Alejandro Bedoya in an international friendly, coming on at halftime vs. the USA in his most recent cap on July 1, 2017.

Make sure to come out and watch Accam and the Boys in Blue take on New England Revolution at Talen Energy Stadium at the team's home opener, presented by Oliver Heating and Cooling, on March 3. Kickoff for the match is at 7 p.m. and tickets can be found here.
