Sons of Ben partnering with Philly Sports Trips to offer away game trips to Nashville and Florida

Travel packages are also available to non-members

While the Sons of Ben and other hardcore Philadelphia Union supporters were able to see the team in person in limited numbers in 2020, there weren’t any organized road trips during the team’s Supporters’ Shield-winning season.

That will change this summer with two trips being organized for Nashville and Florida.

Both trips are being offered in partnership with Philly Sports Trips, a new partner of the Sons of Ben for organized road trips. Packages include direct group flights, charter bus airport transfers, lodging, tickets and other activities.

The first trip is schedule for Fourth of July weekend in Nashville, where the Union will play Nashville SC on Monday, July 5. The trip to Florida includes an option to arrive earlier for the Orlando City game the Thursday before the Inter Miami match on July 25.

Both trips are open to non-members, but Sons of Ben members do get a discounted rate.

“It feels momentous,” Sons of Ben travel director Heather Reppert said of the trips announced this week.

Reppert was elected to the position in late 2019 but after two early road games last March, the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the season and most every opportunity for fans to assemble and attend away matches.

“During this time I think we’ve all learned to value human connection and the importance that sports actually plays into that for many people,” Reppert said. “I’m looking forward to just see people having fun together again while supporting the Union.”
