Clearwater, Florida will once again be the preseason home for the Philadelphia Union.

The team announced on Tuesday that they will be back in Clearwater for two preseason stints, the first from January 28 to February 7 and the second from February 11-24.

The second stint will feature three preseason games on February 16, 20 and 23. A fan event is scheduled for February 21 and a youth soccer clinic for February 19.

The Union played three scrimmages during their first stint in Florida last preseason and also had a closed door scrimmage at Orlando City during the second stint last year.

Their three official preseason matches are typically part of the Suncoast Invitational hosted by the Tampa Bay Rowdies but details of the annual event have not been announced.

Though it hasn’t been announced, the team will likely begin training camp back home the third week of January. One training session is typically opened to the public.
