Union to Train in Orlando

Posted on 21 January 2011 by stoma

The Philadelphia Union announced today that the club would be spending the first leg of their preseason training in Orlando, Florida each year, beginning this year and running through 2014.  The deal marks an early benefit of the Bimbo Bakeries USA sponsorship announced 10 days ago, as the company will be the presenting sponsor of the Orlando camp in each of the four years.

This year, the club will warm up in game conditions by facing off against USL PRO’s newest addition, Orlando City S.C. at the Citrus Bowl at 7 p.m. on Saturday, February 19, 2011.

In all, the Union will spend a full 3 weeks training in Florida (January 31-February 20) before returning to finalize preparations for the regular season, which kicks off in Houston on March 19.

In the coming week, come see the Union train for yourself, as practices from January 24-28 (11 a.m.-1 p.m. each day) are open to the public at the YSC Sports facility in Wayne, Pennsylvania.
