The Philadelphia Union announced to fans today that the team's academy game versus the Everton academy team will have free admission for anyone who has a ticket to the first team game between the two sides.

Everton and the Union are set to play, at 7:30 pm on July 20, in the marquee match of the day. The game pits United States Men's National Team (USMNT) starting goalkeeper Tim Howard - a former New Jersey/New York MetroStars (now the New York Red Bulls) player - against Sebastien Le Toux, Danny Mwanga and the other members of the Eastern conference leading Union.

The two teams will have an undercard match involving Everton's under-18 academy team and a collective group of the Union's academy system, at 4 pm on July 20. The speculation is that the Union's team will consist of mostly under-18 players with perhaps a few under-16 players that are currently excelling in the academy system.
