Seattle Sounders Face Philadelphia Union In Inaugural Match At PPL Park

Sounders FC take the field against the Philadelphia Union at 2pm today, in Philadelphia's new, soccer-specific stadium. The Union have played just two matches at "home", but those brought over 25,000 fans to support the newest club in MLS. Today we can expect PPL Park, which holds 18,500, to be filled to capacity with expectant fans.

We in Seattle are used to hearing about the atmosphere in Qwest Field. How will the Sounders react, however, when the boot is on the other foot and the taunts are being thrown their way? Will Seb Le Toux continue to build upon his impressive season by scoring against his former club? Find out today by tuning in to ESPN2 at 5PM ET, 2PM PT.
