The Union announced themselves to the world in 2008, although the expansion side wouldn’t begin play until 2010. The Philadelphia location was actually the third location after a site in Trenton and Glassboro, New Jersey. The inaugural coach of the club was Piotr Nowak, who would end up remaining with the club for just over three years.
Despite the team’s lack of an MLS Cup, their fan base has provided continued support. Their lowest season average was well over 15,000, their best finish what been a conference semifinals in their second season. Nowak won just 28% of his games leading to his dismissal in 2012 the eventual appointment of John Hackworth after serving as the club’s interim manager for just over 3 months.
Despite winning 33% of his games, Hackworth would only be with the club for just under 2 years. He would be replaced in 2014 by current manager Jim Curtin who has managed a better than 40% win rate for the side. He is also the longest tenured manager in the club’s short history.
