5th Annual River Cup

THE RIVER CUP RETURNS! The fifth annual River Cup will be played Saturday, Sept. 19 at 11:30 a.m. at PPL Park. The annual friendly match features Union front office and technical staff members against the Sons of Ben. Also, for the second consecutive year, the Delaware River Craft Brewfest will begin after the conclusion of the match at 3 p.m. Tickets for both events are available for purchase here or at the PPL Park Box Office.

Proceeds of the River Cup benefit the Philadelphia Union Foundation, including the Foundation’s partnerships with Big Brother / Big Sister of Pennsylvania and the continuation of two after school programs: Chester City United & Soccer For Success. The Philadelphia Union’s mission is to provide opportunities to children in Chester and the surrounding areas.

School Supply Drive

At the Union home match on August 29, the Union will be hosting a school supply drive to benefit the City Team and Chester-Upland School District. The Union will have a collection bin on the plaza during the pregame festivities, and the SoBs will have our own bin at our tailgate.
As an incentive for people to remember to bring in the supplies, there will be a raffle for anyone who brings in supplies from the list (see below) will be entered to win a prize from the Union (tbd). You cannot buy a raffle ticket for these items, you must bring in at least a bag of supplies. With it being “back to school” season, you can find great deals at office supply stores (Staples, Office Max, etc.), discount stores (5 Below, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, etc.) or even department stores (K-Mart, WalMart, etc.).
We also had members collect supplies at their office or stores (with management’s permission) and bring in the collection on the day of the match.
