- Philadelphia Union
As we all know the new MLS club in Philadelphia will more than likely be called Philadelphia Union but the Philadelphia Inquire posted something today that could mean the name is still up in the air.
A giant list was reduced to 135 choices, then to four announced finalists. Fans voted at Philly.com, the team pledging to abide by the results so long as the balloting was decisive.
The other finalists were Philadelphia SC, the initials standing for “Soccer Club;” Philadelphia AC, for “Athletic Club,” and Philadelphia City.
AC or SC could still be added to the name Union.
So maybe it will be Philadelphia Union AC or SC? Or as someone wrote to me recently it could end up as Union Philadelphia or Union Philadelphia SC? Honestly I kind of hope it just stays with Philadelphia Union, even with the initials being P.U. I don’t know but that is just me, the name has already started to grow on me and the logo is something that should not be messed with at this point.
What do you think? Add a SC or AC to the name or keep it Union?
