For the first time in almost a year, Philadelphia Union fans will get a chance to purchase tickets to see a game in person in Chester when tickets go on sale tomorrow for Sunday’s game against the Montreal Impact.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement Tuesday paved the way for the email fans received on Wednesday announcing ticket sales beginning on Thursday.
This will be the first game open to fans since the stadium was renamed Subaru Park last winter. The new guidelines for outdoor sports venues will limit the capacity to 15 percent or 2,775 people.
“Philadelphia Union fans are the heartbeat of this organization and we are thrilled to be able to open the doors of Subaru Park after a long hiatus,” Philadelphia Union President Tim McDermott stated in a news release. “We appreciate the guidance and support of Governor Wolf and public health officials in making this possible. The health and safety of our fans, players, coaches, and staff is our number one priority. We have worked tirelessly to implement a set of strict guidelines and procedures that will ensure that fans can watch the team they love comfortably and safely.”
All attendees must wear a mask at all times in Subaru Park, except when actively eating or drinking, and will receive a temperature check upon gate arrival. Seats have been spaced out throughout the bowl to allow for six feet of distance in all directions for each seated party.
All previous touch points between staff and fans have been eliminated; fans will now arrive with a mobile ticket and parking pass, walk through security metal detectors, and only be able to purchase concessions via credit or debit card.

As part of the ticket purchasing process fans will be asked to sign a waiver of liability.
