The Philadelphia Union’s first ever game is in two days

The Philadelphia Union will play its first ever game against the UNC Wilmington men’s soccer team this Saturday, Feb. 6th, at 5pm. The UNCW Seahawks are defending champions of the Colonial Athletic Association and should provide a good first test for the Union.

“It’s extremely exciting for our players and program for what in essence will be the first game for the new MLS franchise, the Philadelphia Union,” said UNCW head coach Aidan Heaney (and former New England Revolution goalkeeper) in a press release.

“It’s an opportunity to play against some of the best talent MLS has to offer, so what better test for our players and chance to better themselves? It should be a great experience. It will also be enjoyable to play against former Seahawk goalkeeper Brad Knighton, who recently joined the Union from the New England Revolution.”

The match should provide a good opportunity for Nowak to play around with his starting formation but, also, to test out some of the trialists. ASN has reported that at least one trialist, Temple’s JT Noone, made the trip down to North Carolina, and there’s a good chance he could see some playing time on Saturday.


On a related note, I am frantically trying to find local journalists/Union fans/passers-by who can do a write up for this blog. If you know anyone in the Greensboro area who is going to this match please let me know!
