Philadelphia Union has announced the construction of a new Premium VIP club in Talen Energy Stadium, anticipated to open in the late summer of 2019. The club will offer exclusive opportunities from food and beverage to one-of-kind experiences, such as close proximity to the players throughout the game.

 

Located behind the River End, and next to the Union locker room, the newly named “Tunnel Club” will offer special game day experiences to West Side Field Seat, Field Table, Manager’s Row and Presidential Row Season Ticket Members. The maximum capacity of 150 VIP guests ensures each person will have a unique, unforgettable game-day experience at Talen Energy Stadium.

 

The 3,000 sq. ft. club offers fans access to Union and visiting team players during pregame, halftime and postgame where they are able to watch and cheer on players entering and exiting the locker rooms.

 

Tim McDermott, Chief Business Operator of the Philadelphia Union, said:

The Tunnel Club will offer a world-class, luxury experience that is truly one-of-a-kind for Union fans at Talen Energy Stadium. Not only will this club provide an unparalleled VIP setting to take in Union matches, it will also bring our fans so close to the players they can see their raw emotion and energy as they come on and off the field.

 

Those with access can also enjoy all-inclusive food and beverage inside the club, and Manager’s Row and Presidential Row members will have a private and personalized locker area for their use.

 

The Tunnel Club reflects similar spaces used by international clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City and locally like the Philadelphia Eagles for their VIP members.

 

Additionally, as part of their existing partnership, Stella Artois will be the presenting partner of the Stella Artois Lounge, the new bar and hospitality space inside the Tunnel Club.
