Union announce season ticket waiting list

With less than 500 season tickets remaining, Philadelphia Union have announced that the club will soon be accepting deposits for a season ticket waiting list.  Major League Soccer's newest club has capped season ticket sales at 12,000 to allow the Union to have a limited number of individual game and group seats available.

"With the 12,000 season ticket cap very close, we want to give fans a clear procedure on how to get in line," said Philadelphia Union President Tom Veit.  "We consulted with other MLS teams that have waiting lists to insure our fans would have a fair chance to get season tickets when and if they become available."

While most sections are already sold out, there are a small number of season tickets remaining in the Sideline, Endline, Corner and Supporter sections.

"The good news is that there truly is not a bad seat in the house, so those getting the last few season tickets will still have a great seat," Veit added.

Philadelphia Union will begin accepting $50 deposits for season ticket accounts, which can later be applied to tickets when and if they become available.  Those on the waiting list will have the opportunity to select their seats in the order in which they made their payment.  Once on the season ticket waiting list, prospective season ticket holders will be eligible for select offers from the team.  There is a limit of six season tickets per account.

The Union begin play in PPL Park on June 27th against Seattle Sounders FC.  To avoid the waiting list, you can secure your season seats today at or by calling 877-21-UNION (877-218-6466).
