Philadelphia Union Record
The Philadelphia Union had their first season in 2010 and by 2011 the team was playing in the conference semifinals. Through their first six seasons 2011 was their best year and the only time they qualified for the playoffs. Even though the play of the team has been subpar, the fan support has been anything but.
The Union play their home games at Talen Energy Stadium, a bustling stadium located just southwest of Philadelphia. The stadium is one of the smaller ones in the MLS with a seating capacity between 18,500 and 20,000. The smaller size allows for the stadium to often reach capacity and a full house of Philadelphia sports fans is as loud and passionate a group you can find anywhere.
The biggest rivalries of the Philadelphia Union are D.C United and both New York Clubs. Philadelphia and D.C have played a very close rivalry with the teams nearly trading wins through their first 18 meetings. Their history against the New York Red Bulls is not as close, as the Red Bulls hold a distinctive edge in the series. Philadelphia’s rivalry with New York City FC is in its infancy stages and has yet to blossom – due to both teams failing to field a competitive club in 2015. The Union also hold a rivalry with the Seattle Sounders.
The Union are poised to finally get over the hump in 2016. The group has had time to develop chemistry and the best players are entering their prime. Watch the lines as the season progresses. The longer the Union can hold a high spot in the standings the more the lines will begin to sway in their favour.
