A press conference is scheduled for tomorrow at City Hall with Mayor Nutter, Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber, Chester Mayor John Linder and Union CEO and operating partner Nick Sakiewicz.

Speculation centers on the fact that the MLS all-star game is expected to come to PPL Park. Last year league officials intimated that the Union would host an all-star game within three years.

The Union have been among the true success stories in their first two seasons, playing before sellouts virtually every game at PPL Park.

This will be one of the rewards for the early success.
