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.
Sons of Ben FC were victorious in 2013, though the Union Front Office were victors after a shootout in 2014. The Sons of Ben intend to win the trophy back on September 19, 2015.
