We might not know everyone who will play in the blue and gold in 2018, but we do know who the Philadelphia Union will be playing. The league announced the schedule today with a full-blown live show.

You can view the full schedule here.

We already knew the Union were hosting New England Revolution in Week 1.  Turns out they follow it up right away with a bye in Week 2.

  • The bye headlines a fairly soft spring run, including visits from San Jose, Orlando, and D.C., with a few away games sprinkled in.
  • The heat turns up in May, though, with three away dates in one week versus, Toronto, Columbus, and Montreal.
  • Another difficult stretch includes back-to-back games in June versus Atlanta and Toronto.
  • The Union will also meet LAFC for the first time in Southern California on June 30th.
  • To close the season out, the Union will have a New York double with consecutive dates versus Red Bulls at home and at NYCFC.

What do you think of the Union’s 2018 schedule and what matchups should fans most look forward to?

  1. At this point, the matchup I am look most looking forward to is the Fans vs. Jay Sugarman, unless they do some very serious amelioration this offseason.

    And they can’t just get better; the league gets better every year. They have to improve by more than the average squad. Which hasn’t happened since 2011.

  2. 5 midweek games away, compared to 1 at home.
    .
    Fri, May 4 @ Toronto; Wed, May 9 @ Columbus; Sat, May 12 @ Montreal – brutal stretch. Bye weeks after Wed, July 11 (@ Chicago) and Wed, July 25 (@ Houston) – somewhat of a relief.
    .
    Sat, July 21 – our first ever weekend home game against the Galaxy…only took 9 years.
    .
    Sat, Sept. 15 vs. Montreal; Wed, Sept 19 @ Seattle; Sun, Sept 23 vs. SKC – well, the Seattle game will be a throwaway.

  3. Four matches scheduled at the same time as a little tournament in Russia

  4. There’s an awful lot of times on home dates listed as “TBD”…
