While the Philadelphia Union have yet to confirm any part of their preseason schedule beyond a February 18 friendly against the Orlando City Lions, outside news sources have begun to reveal preseason dates.
The Union affiliated Youth Sports Complex (YSC) is the home of the beginning of the Union's 2012 MLS campaign. Mainline Media News reports that Philadelphia will train at the Wayne, PA based facility from January 24-28. Last year the Union opened up one of the team's training days at YSC to the public, which allowed bloggers to determine what players were trialing with the team.
Prior to playing Orlando City, the Union will face the Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles in Orlando on February 11. The friendly is a part of Philadelphia's trip to Florida, which includes a stay in Orlando until February 19.
Past Union preseason appearances in Florida yielded less than desired results, including a loss to the Lions and a draw against the USMNT under-17 team.
