The Philadelphia Union will be heading back to Red Bull Arena this month, but their opponent won’t be a team from New York.
Following Saturday’s home game against New England, the Union will hit the road again to take on the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena on Sunday, September 20, followed by a road trip to Cincinatti that Wednesday and a home game against Inter Miami on September 27.
All three of the new September matches will be broadcast on PHL17 as well as for free for fans in the Philadelphia DMA on PhiladelphiaUnion.com.
Nine more regular season matches will be announced at a later date.
The Audi MLS Cup Playoffs will again consist of single-elimination matches hosted by the higher-seeded team and follow a straight bracket format through MLS Cup on Dec. 12.

The lower-seeded advancing team will face the Eastern Conference No. 1 seed in Round 1, while the higher-seeded advancing team will face the Eastern Conference No. 2 seed. The Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs schedule and broadcast details will be announced at a later date.
