How to Watch: Union vs. Fire

New, 1 comment

For those of us who aren’t in Clearwater, we’re about to get our first look at the 2018 Union.

MLS: Philadelphia Union at Chicago Fire Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The big news in Philadelphia today is that the Union are streaming their first scrimmage of the preseason. They take on the Chicago Fire at 11 AM, and the action will be live here:

The Union have played two scrimmages thus far, falling to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday and thumping the University of South Florida on Tuesday. Though those games were open to the public, neither of them was streamed, meaning that this is the first time we’ll see the 2018 Philadelphia Union in action.

Today’s scrimmage will also be David Accam’s first game against his former team, even if it is only preseason. Accam spent three years with the Fire, scoring 33 goals in 78 league appearances. Three weeks ago, the Union sent $1.2m in allocation money to the Fire in order to bring the winger to Chester.
