OUR MISSION is to provide the youth of Chester, PA, with a transformative soccer experience through our club, under the direction of the Philadelphia Union and its Foundation. We aim to empower young athletes, instilling values of teamwork, discipline, and personal growth, while promoting access to the sport and fostering community engagement. Through soccer, we strive to create a positive impact in the lives of our players, their families, and the broader Chester community.

OUR VISION is to establish a soccer club in Chester, PA, operated by the foundation of the Philadelphia Union, that serves as a beacon of hope and opportunity. We envision a club where children from all backgrounds, regardless of socio-economic status, can develop their soccer skills, nurture their passion for the game, and unlock their full potential. We aspire to cultivate well-rounded individuals who become leaders both on and off the field, contributing positively to their communities and beyond.

OUR PLAN

Through the power of soccer, the Philadelphia Union Foundation plans to safely grow the beautiful game in Chester by creating opportunities and transforming lives.

Our plan is to invite, inspire, and involve the youth of Chester to join a new philanthropic soccer club. By creating a safe environment where they can feel included and have fun. To develop a love of the game and be a part of something bigger than themselves. 

Chester Union will be full philanthropic soccer at no cost to the Chester community. 

We are looking to form teams for boys and girls of all ages.  As we look to build these teams, we are offering play days every Friday and Saturday.  No experience necessary. Continue to check back to this site for more information.

We already have a U19 age boys team training and competing. We will continue building and our goal is to form teams for fall of 2024 if not sooner.  Come join Chester Union and be the first to wear the Chester Union crest.
