Pennsylvania anglers get a “kick” out of discounted
Philadelphia Union soccer tickets
July 19, 2013
HARRISBURG, Pa. (July 19) - The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) and the Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer are providing an excellent opportunity for all current Pennsylvania fishing license holders to purchase discounted game tickets for all home games through October 26, 2013, at PPL Park in Chester, Delaware County.

All midfield, sideline and corner seat categories have been discounted $5 off regular price exclusively for Pennsylvania fishing license holders. All discounted tickets must be pre-ordered online with no sales occurring at the park’s ticket office.

 “Fishing and soccer both provide great fun for many families participating in both outdoor sports,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “Soccer has become the favorite sport for many of us, and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with the Philadelphia Union to help bring more attention to both soccer and fishing. In addition to the Commonwealth’s abundant aquatic resources in local streams and rivers, Pennsylvania offers many excellent venues such as PPL Park along the scenic Delaware River for families to enjoy.”

All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and only orders that are purchased together can be seated together. Discounted tickets cannot be purchased at the park gate, by phone, and there are no refunds or exchanges for tickets purchased. To pre-purchase tickets, visit and enter the code FISH2013 with all capital letters in the “Promotional Code” text field. Then select the preferred game date, seat category and exact seat location.

For soccer enthusiasts who don’t have a Pennsylvania fishing license, why not consider purchasing one to fish the rest of the year, or consider purchasing one of the new multi-year fishing licenses to fish for many years. By doing so, soccer fans will realize that a fishing license purchase would not only be their gateway to family fishing fun, but also be a great value with the savings from these discounted tickets.
