What section do you sit in, what are your most memorable moments in the river end, When did you join SoB? Tell us all of this and more!!!
EDIT: Gonna keep the suggested sort to "new" so the most recent introductions won't get buried!
Hey all. I’m a Toronto FC fan (apologies for posting here but I’m desperate!) and will be in Philly on business on Tuesday, April 10, which means I don’t know where to go catch TFC vs America in the CONCACAF champions league semi-final. It’s on Univision Deportes. I’m staying near Penn’s Landing; does anyone know a pub in that general area that will show the match?
Brand new SoB here. Moved back to Philly from South Africa a year ago and finally got up to speed with the local scene. I got my 2018 SoB kit and like the scarf, but was wondering if it's possible to purchase the older color-scheme scarves anywhere? SoB merchandise store doesn't seem to offer them.
If it's an exclusive item for that particular year, I understand and respect that as well. Just curious if they are possibly out there somewhere and I may be missing it?
I am from England, and have been given the opportunity to spend 3 weeks working for my company in New York from Monday.
I'm keen to go to an MLS game whilst I'm out there. The two fixtures I can make during my time are NY Red Bulls vs yourselves, or NYFC vs Houston Dynamo.
I'm not that thrilled by the prospect of going in the home ends for franchises owned by Red Bull and the Man City Group respectively. I don't like what either Red Bull or Man City have done to modern football in recent years in Europe. I'm far more excited by the grassroots history of your club. It's also always a far better atmosphere in the away end!
I know this is a derby game, so tickets might be hard to get. I can't work out if/how its possible to buy them online. Is it already sold out or are they not on sale yet? Do I have any chance of getting a ticket if I'm not a home season ticket holder or part of a supporter's group?
Fafa's header last night was remarkable in its own right. On the drive back home listening to the radio, The Talking Heads 'Psycho Killer' came on. Take this idea and run with it or leave it DOA..
Psycho Header, His name is Picault. Fafa Fafa Fafa Fafa oh oh Run run run run run run run down the wing.
Psycho Header His name is Picault. Fafa Fafa Fafa Fafa oh oh Run run run run run run run down the wing. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah
So last night the checkered flags were starting to be distributed shortly before halftime. Loved it. Imagine being on the field and busting your ass the first half and then walking back to tRE tunnel and suddenly there are all the flags that weren't there just minutes before. A nice welcome little surprise. Nice work gameday crew!!
Not sure if that was intentional or coincidental, but would love to see this continue on! Save the flags for 40' and then start handing them out to all the sections.
I was watching the Dortmund - Monaco game today, Dortmund fans in their supporters section were all wearing poncho's (yellow or black) and it spelled out BVB in the stands. Is this something we can do? it was brilliant cause people didnt have to hold up squares of plastic, and it was like having a TIFO up for the whole game (no screenshot sorry). I dont think the river end is big enough to spell anything out but we could have alternating sections of blue and yellow or something.

I want to remind you that the River End of Talen Energy Stadium, is a Philadelphia Union supporters section. These should not be looked at as the cheap seats, if you are thinking of selecting seats in the River End because it's not as much as other sections, and not because you want to support the team, you don't want to yell, sing, cheer, wave your flag, jump around, smell like smoke, lose your voice...be a supporter, than I implore you, do not choose seats in the River End.
PS Go watch the Sons of Ben Movie on Netflix and rate it 5 Stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
/u/peewoah1 here. How've ya all been? Counting down the 79 remaining days until the home opener (and 'Stache Bash!) on March 11?
Wanted to quickly post that I am running for Philanthropy Director for the Sons of Ben. You can read a quick little bio about me and the other candidates in today's 'Nack, but how much can you really learn about a candidate in a 200-word write up? Hence this posts so you can ask me whatever's on your mind, and ultimately make a more informed decision when casting your ballot.
Will do my best to check in daily over the next several weeks and answer your questions. Ad Finem Fidelis,
Just a quick question am i right in saying that memberships don't auto renew. LAst year I resigned myself up early because I wanted the stuff at the beginning of the year instead of the end where I had signed up (to go to Open Cup final. Long time fan, just not often the money to go to games and such).
Also does anyone know how expensive full season parking passes are? I will have season tickets this year and would like to prepare financially.
