Superb Soccer Stadium

Really lovely stadium for soccer, with terrific sight lines to the pitch. Good food and drink is readily available, although expensive. Long walk to parking.

I am very happy that the Philadelphia Union have their own dedicated stadium, rather than sharing with one of the other professional or collegiate teams in the city. A full stadium of 18,000 is a much better environment than a quarter-full stadium of 80,000. The fact that it was designed with soccer in mind also means that there are few... More

Firstly, use Google Maps as you approach the stadium when there is traffic, it will take you on a nice little shortcut that will save you fifteen to twenty minutes. Secondly, park across the street. If you park across the street in the side lots of houses where people are offering parking space, you'll save ten bucks on parking and... More

This was a beautiful stadium. Nice view of the river! Downfalls- it's $20 to park, beer/food is overpriced, and traffic was horrendous leaving (normal stadium downfalls I suppose). We can't wait to go back for our next game!

I've been a season ticket holder since the first season. It's a great little stadium. The seats are great and close to the action. The atmosphere is electric thanks to the Sons of Ben. The food is kind of expensive (hey it is a stadium) but the quality is decent. I don't feel like I'm getting ripped off like other... More

On this, my first visit to Talen Stadium, I didn't see a Union soccer game, but rather attended a party in the "club" of the stadium. The space was adequate for the 120 people in attendance and the service was very good. The food was typical stadium food: wings, burgers, etc., so nothing special. The view of the field and... More

I went to this stadium for a rugby tournament. It was delightful! It was sited right on the Delaware river, giving a great view of the river and the Commodore Barry Bridge. The facility, seating 18,000, is a great mid-sized venue, with plenty of rest rooms, concessions, specialty boxes yet never felt crowded. It is *pretty*, which you'd have to... More

Had a great time (except for the extortion of the organizers - $49 entry fee) Stadium and atmosphere is excellent. Nice facilities. Very nice paddock to watch a good game of footie.

Went to a derby match between the Philadelphia Union and DC United. Chester is a bit rough but the stadium is in a good location. There is plenty of parking surrounding the ground, as well as the Union's training pitches so you are pretty separate from some of the more jaunty areas of Chester. It's right on the Delaware River,... More
