Union debut to air on ESPN2

The Philadelphia Union will open their inaugural season and celebrate the start of the 2010 Major League Soccer season on Thursday, March 25 when the club takes on Seattle Sounders FC, at Qwest Field live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Philadelphia will play its first ever home match two weeks later on Saturday, April 10 against Eastern Conference opponent D.C. United at Lincoln Financial Field.

“Playing our first match in a fantastic atmosphere like Seattle’s on national television will make for a truly historic occasion,” said Philadelphia Union CEO & Operating Partner Nick Sakiewicz. “Seattle is a good team and will be an early test for us. They are a terrific organization and are one of the great expansion success stories in any sport. It will be fun and challenging to go into a hostile environment and come home with our first win. The countdown to First Kick has officially begun.”
