“Falls Soccer Club is extremely proud and excited to be an affiliate of the Philadelphia Union. As a season ticket holder since day one, this couldn't be closer to home for me as I've followed the Union since the start in 2010. Our new relationship with the Union Youth Affiliate Program will be a huge benefit to the kids in our community and program. We're looking to add a true developmental pathway to our players and coaches and partnering with the Philadelphia Union is just a huge step forward for the club as a whole. Aside from our full travel and academy training partnership, we'll look to add more and more opportunities, including camps, specialized training sessions and more. “Commented Kevin Shaw, President of Falls SC.
