Union hosts Pumas in 2nd international friendly match

Everyone knows the most popular sport in Mexico is soccer, aka association football. In other words, the men who play for the clubs in Mexico are fierce, and their games are intense to watch. It is super exciting to hear that the Philadelphia Union will be hosting Mexican club Pumas UNAM in their second international friendly match at Talen Energy Stadium.

They play their home games at Estadio Olímpico Universitario, located on National Autonomous University of Mexico’s (NAUM) main campus.
