Getting The Independence to PPL Park



So I've been doing a lot of reading and thinking lately about the success of the Women's World Cup in terms of winning over non-soccer and casual soccer fans, and whether or not that success would help get the WPS onto stable footing financially. In regards to the Independence specifically, it seems like they're hamstrung by the fact that they have to play at Widener in a stadium that's capped at 4,000 seats which I'd have to imagine stunts their financial growth. Obviously I'm not privy to estimated projections of what that number could be at a larger stadium, but weren't the Charge pulling in 7,000+ when they were at Villanova? I am a season ticket holder for The Union, but have been to a few Independence games and really want to see them succeed, as I'm sure most other soccer fans in this area would. My question to everyone is this: Is there anything holding back the Independence and Union from doing double-header packages at PPL? If not, would people be interested in such a thing? Personally, I'd love to see something like this happen, even if its just once or twice. What are your thoughts on this?
