Union’s next game will be on Tuesday, November 24

MLS: Chicago Fire at Seattle Sounders FC Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

More details about the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs were released Monday afternoon, including when the Philadelphia Union will play next. That date is Tuesday, November 24th with a kickoff at 8 p.m. on ESPN. The Union won’t know who they will be playing on that date until Friday, November 20.

That is because the Union will host the lower-seeded winner from the Eastern Conference Play-In Round games. Those games will be between the Nashville SC (7th seed), New England Revolution (8th seed), Montreal Impact (9th seed), and Inter Miami CF (10th seed).

Looking at the playoff matches it is very possible that the Union will meet the Revs for the 6th time this season. For this to happen the two higher seeds will need to win the playoff games. Below is the full updated match schedule for the postseason.
