This is a call for volunteers to help with the Lititz Summer Showcase on July 25-26. The Lititz Summer Showcase is a travel level soccer tournament that brings dozens of teams U9-U19 (boys and girls) to the area to play and gives college coaches an opportunity to scout for new talent. We still need some help (no experience needed) from parking attendants, t-shirt sellers, food concessions, field marshalls, and field setup on both days. Please contact Lis Martin if you have a few hours to donate that weekend or leading up to it.
Registration for the Fall 2015 season is still open, with no late fee! Late fee goes into effect on July 15th.
The equipment dropoff originally scheduled for Tuesday evening is being rescheduled due to the weather forecast. Equipment can be dropped off at Gerhart sheds on Thursday, June 25 from 6:00-8:00pm.
Fireworks Night at PPL Park is Saturday, June 27th! The match takes place at 7:00 against Montreal Impact.
That night is also the annual Tickets For Troops event. Anyone can participate by donating tickets to troops & their families. All donations of 15 tickets or more will be matched by the Union and donated on behalf of you or your organization.
Bring your friends and family out to support Philadelphia Union at a discounted rate! Groups can receive a savings of up to $8 per ticket by calling (610) 497-6281.
