Philadelphia Union Playoff History
The Philadelphia Union are an expansion franchise that began play in 2010. A young franchise, the Union massively increased soccer’s footprint in the Philadelphia area. They have had playoff success and reached back-to-back US Open Cup finals in 2014 and 2015.
The U lost their first-ever MLS regular season game to the Seattle Sounders. They bounced back in their home opener to win their first MLS game, 3-2 over D.C. United. French forward Sébastien Le Toux starred for the Union in their first two seasons, leading the team in scoring both years. With Le Toux’s poaching skills, the Union qualified for their first MLS playoffs in their second season. They finished 3rd in the Eastern Conference and looked ready for a deep postseason run.
In their first playoff series, Philadelphia faced the Houston Dynamo, a stalwart MLS franchise. They played their first playoff game on home turf in front of a sold-out crowd. Canadian André Hainault got the game off to a bad start for the home crowd when he scored for the Houston Dynamo in the 6th minute. But, Le Toux was able to answer right back with a 7th minute reply to Houston’s goal. Philadelphia fans were hopeful their squad could build on this momentum and create more chances. But, it was the Dynamo who pounced on an opportunity and scored in the 30th minute and finished the game ahead 2-1. In Houston, the Dynamo’s Brian Ching was the only scorer, and Philadelphia lost their first playoff series.
Philadelphia then missed out on the next four playoffs and failed to finish above 12th place in the MLS. However, they did achieve some cup success in the interim. The club reached two finals of the US Open Cup in 2014 and 2015. The Open Cup pits all professional American soccer clubs in a knockout tournament. In 2014, the U lost to the Seattle Sounders 3-1 in extra time. In the 2015 edition of the cup, Sporting Kansas City beat Philadelphia 7-6 in a penalty shootout. Despite the pair of heart-breaking losses, the cup runs represented the biggest achievement for the club in their short time as an MLS franchise.
After the cup runs, Philadelphia returned to the playoffs in 2016. The club made it into the playoffs by finishing 6th in the Eastern Conference and faced Toronto FC in the knockout round. In the winner-take-all game, Toronto came out on top and outed the Union in their second early exit from the playoffs.
