Expansion Union May Need Alternative Venue For Opener

MOST COMMENTED

Philadelphia Union may not have its new stadium, currently under construction on Chester's waterfront, ready for its opening date next season. Prepared for such an event, the team is shopping for other venues, namely the Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field.

"Right now everything is running on schedule construction-wise, but we are on a real tight schedule and with MLS yet to announce opening day dates, we just want to make sure that we are covered," Union president Tom Veit told the Daily News. "If we have to open on a certain date that doesn't meet our deadlines then that is a problem, so we are just making sure we do our due diligence."

Veit says that Lincoln Financial would provide an ideal opening venue. "The Eagles have been great," Veit said. "We know with the Gold Cup having played there and it being a possible venue for the World Cup it would be the perfect place for us to start the season," Veit said. "So if it does have to be a possibility they are ready to accommodate us."
