Yep. You can’t make this stuff up apparently. The Philadelphia Union announced today that the club will host Star Wars Day during the May 4th match against Seattle Sounders at PPL Park.
The game, a 4:00 p.m. kickoff, will feature interactive games, contests and promotional giveaways in conjunction with the iconic film series created by George Lucas.
So a costume contest will be done. Special t-shirts will be made. And more. Wow.
Star Wars-themed Union T-Shirts displaying “MAY THE FORCE BE WITH DOOP” on the front will be available for $150. The limited-edition T-Shirts will also be for sale that day in the Union Shop with all proceeds benefitting the Philadelphia Union Foundation.
I have to say the shirts are pretty sweet looking. I’m not the biggest Star Wars geek out there but I do think this is a pretty neat promotion by the Union.
More details on the day can be found here.
