Philadelphia Union Surpass 2010 Season Ticket Mark

April 5, 2011 2:37:34 PM PDT
The Philadelphia Union have announced today that they have surpassed the number of season tickets sold during their inaugural 2010 season. After selling out of full and partial season tickets in 2010, the Union have increased their season ticket cap for the 2011 season. With the expanded cap, there are still great seats available for both Full and Partial Season ticket plans at the Midfield, Sideline and Endline levels. There are also less than 30 seats available for Full or Partial Season tickets in the Supporters Section. To purchase seats in the Supporters Section you must be a registered member of the Sons of Ben.

"Soccer fans in this market continue to impress us with their dedication to the club," said CEO & Operating Partner Nick Sakiewicz. "Season ticket holders are the lifeblood of our organization and we're excited to see an even stronger base this year than in our inaugural season. It's an exciting time to be a Union fan and our season ticket number is reflecting that sentiment. We're appreciative of everyone's support and look forward to spending the rest of the season together at PPL Park."

By becoming a season ticket holder, fans can save money on per game ticket prices and receive priority for additional Union matches and international friendlies. For convenience, season ticket holders can utilize the Philadelphia Union Ticket Marketplace to re-sell tickets to matches they can't attend. Additionally, all card-carrying season ticket holders receive post-game access to the PPL Park Stadium Club. For a full list of season ticket holder benefits, visit

Full season ticket holders also have the ability to participate in the Season Ticket Loyalty Program. Loyalty points are accrued throughout the year and can be used to bid on items such as game-worn jerseys, access to exclusive events and unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that are only available for card-carrying season ticket holders.

Fans who secure season tickets this week will be able to pick up their tickets at Will Call before Saturday's match against Thierry Henry, Rafa Marquez, Dwayne De Rosario and the Eastern Conference rival New York Red Bulls.
