The Philadelphia Union are competing in their biggest match of the year so far as tonight they take on the Houston Dynamo at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, to determine the winner of the 2018 US Open Cup. This is the third Cup Final that the Union have participated in, having been runners up in both 2014 and 2015, losing to both the Seattle Sounders and Sporting Kansas City at home.
The other Philadelphia sports teams have wished the Union well, and here’s hoping that third time is certainly the charm for the Union. Maybe going on the road is what the team needs in order to finally bring the trophy home.
