Historical Moments:

2010: After dropping their first game to Seattle, the Union would make their home debut at Lincoln FInancial Field with a 3-2 win over DC United in the first MLS game ever played in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. That would be the lone bright spot for coach Peter Nowak and his team as they would finish up their inaugural year with an expansion-like seventh-place record of 8-15-7.

2011:
The Union would start off their second MLS season respectably, winning four of their first six games as Sebastien Le Toux continued to make a name for himself. His 11 goals helped the Union through a tough stretch during the summer where the club went winless in seven matches. After that, three wins in their last seven propelled them into their first playoffs with a record of 11-8-15, good for third place in the East. It turned out to be a learning experience for the Union as they were beaten 3-1 on aggregate by the Houston Dynamo.

2012:
After making the playoffs for the first time, the Union would slump badly coming out of the gate, starting the season on a 2-8-2 stretch and had stars Justin Mapp, Danny Califf and Sebastien Le Toux traded at different points in the season. The Union would finish out the campaign at 10-18-6 in eighth place.

2013:
In their fourth season, the Union hoped to return to the playoffs. Instead, the Union would only slightly improve as a rough end of the summer with a five-match winless streak helped keep the team at home during the playoffs at 12-12-10.
