10 years ago today, Philadelphia Union played its inaugural match on the road at Seattle Sounders. Below you'll find the club's first match recap.
SEATTLE, Wa. (March 25, 2010) - On a rainy night in Seattle, the Sounders and Philadelphia Union officially kicked off the 2010 MLS season with an exciting affair from Qwest Field.
Starting out with a very aggressive set-up, the Union fielded a young squad in their first-ever match that came out of the blocks pressing the Sounders for the ball. Captained by Danny Califf, who saw a yellow card under a minute into the match, Team Manager Peter Nowak didn’t shackle his players’ style early on.
