Philadelphia Union II TicketsPhiladelphia Union II is the official reserve squad of its parent organization, the Philadelphia Union. The Union II roster consists of many young prospects and recent graduates from the academy level who strive to cultivate valuable skills and acquire experience in their professional careers. Founded in 2015, the club was originally named the Bethlehem Steel to honor the historic team that won five US Open Cups in the early 20th century. In 2017, Bethlehem made the playoffs for the first time as the eighth seed, losing to Louisville City FC 4-0 in the first round. The club built off this success in the 2018 season and won its first-ever playoff game with a penalty kick victory over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds. However, the season ended once again to Louisville City in the conference semifinals. For the 2019 season, the club relocated to Chester with its parent organization. A year later, the name changed to the Philadelphia Union II. StubHub is a convenient source for all Philadelphia Union II tickets.
