As Friday beckons, the Philadelphia Union and the Sons of Ben continue to promote their charity match at PPL Park. The two sides held a press conference to bring more attention to the first annual River Cup, which will help provide funding for local youth club Chester City United.

Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz and Sons of Ben President Matt Ansbro sat at a table and went over the details of the game, before delving into some light hearted back-and-forth smack talk. The video of the press conference, edited down to its current length by the Union, is below.
