I hate soccer. But some of you, in our reader survey, asked for more Union coverage. So here:
The Union will host Real Madrid at Lincoln Financial Field on Satuday, July 23rd at 9 P.M. (!). Of course, Joe Banner emotes smugness: [CSN Philly]
“Lincoln Financial Field has once again attracted one of the world’s greatest soccer clubs to Philadelphia, hosting its 10th international match since 2003,” said Joe Banner, president of the Philadelphia Eagles. “We’re excited that fans in Philadelphia will have the opportunity to see the Union square off against Real Madrid. And we’re proud to bring another headline event to Lincoln Financial Field, which is becoming a great national entertainment destination.”
Is it just me, or does soccer have more featured exhibtion matches than any other sport?
You can get tickets at the Union's website. Doop, I suppose.
