2013 Union schedule released

After much anticipation, the 2013 Philadelphia Union schedule was released on Wednesday.

The Union open and close the season at home against Sporting Kansas City. Of the 17 home games, two will take place on a Wednesday, one each on a Sunday and Friday, with the remaining 13 falling on a Saturday.

Ten Union matches will be nationally televised, seven on NBCSN, two on ESPN2, and one on ESPN. All of the matches against New York are on national broadcasters (two on NBCSN, one on ESPN), and  two of the DC matches will be nationally broadcast (one each on NBCSN and ESPN2). Of the ten nationally televised games, seven are away games.

The Union’s local broadcast schedule will be released at a later date.

The schedule continues the unbalanced format begun in 2012. Hence, the Union will only host DC and New York once in 2013. Western Conference foes Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy will both visit PPL Park in May.

With the 2013 Gold Cup happening in June, The league will go on a two-and-a-half week break in June to accomodate this year’s Gold Cup tournament. For the Union the break will be followed by two nationally televised home games against New York and Dallas.

  1. Starting and finished with SKC at home.

    Looks like MLS is trying to start something here…

  2. Our “Rivalry Week” game is New England? Meh.

  3. Where can you download it (ical, etc)

  4. can I now mwntion how much I hate the unbalanced schedule

  5. Huge year for the U.

  6. Too many Saturday games; would have liked to have more of those during the week.

    • DarthLos117 says:

      Im super happy bout the amount of Saturday game!

      • I’m happy about the sat games and more afternoon game, we have a one year old and had to split a lot of games last year were eithe me or my wife took some one, glad we will be able to go as a family more this year. And yes this unbalanced thing stinks, we could have another team if Garber wasn’t so set on gaving it in NY

  7. Richie The Limey says:

    I love the Saturday games too, but the unbalanced schedule is bollocks.

    • Agreed. I mean, I get why they do it but it really cuts down on cool travel opportunities. The only feasible summer road trip is Houston. In July.

  8. The Gold Cup takes place in July, not June. The 18-day break the Union takes in June is exclusive to the Union, the rest of the league continues to play games during that period. There are league games on June 8th, 15th and 19th, and the league continues play right through the Gold Cup in July as well.

  9. I’ll be looking forward to the home game vs. Portland this year. That opening day 3-1 dismantling in Portland last year left a bad taste in my mouth for whatever reason. Would love if the Union took it to them this year.
