Way back in 2013, we spoke to Jeff Bell on the first edition of the Crossing Streams podcast about his documentary on the Sons of Ben, the Philadelphia Union supporters club. We spoke to him again yesterday (podcast coming soon) because the film is finally ready to be released, and tickets are now available for the Philadelphia premiere.
The film tells the story of the Sons of Ben supporters club, which predates the Union, their mission to bring an MLS team to Philadelphia, and their drive to help revive Chester, their adopted home. On June 10th, the film will screen at the Ritz East and Ritz Five in Old City, and in a Sons of Ben-only screening at the Trocadero. Additionally, there will be an after party at the Troc for the SoB, VIPs, and you (if you buy a ticket). Tickets and merch and more can be bought over here.
