The Philadelphia Independence are a win a way from possibly clinching first place in WPS and home field advantage for their playoff run. They're also very close to playing one of those playoff games at the Philadelphia Union's home, PPL Park, according to a press release sent out by the team.
"The Independence has always had its sights set on playing matches at PPL Park," said David Halstead, owner and CEO of the Independence told bizjournals.com. "We are grateful to the Philadelphia Union and PPL Park for working with us to make this happen."
"If we can maintain momentum on the field and end the WPS regular season at the top of the standings, we'll have a terrific event at PPL Park to showcase our team, fans, and women's professional soccer to the rest of the country."
With only one game left in the regular season, the Independence are three points ahead of the second place Western New York Flash, who have played two less games than Philadelphia.
If the Independence finish in at least second place, Philadelphia will host at least one playoff game.
