MLS expansion franchise Philadelphia Union will hold two open tryouts as they prepare for their inaugural season in the competition.

Head coach Peter Nowak and Union staff will hold the sessions in November and December with the first one being at Mercer County Park Field in Trenton on November 14 and the second to be held at Penn’s Rhodes Field on December 5.

Both sessions will have a follow-on session the next day (November 15 and December 6) so Nowak and his staff can have a closer look at players who catch their eye.

Players must sign up online, choosing only one tryout site, and pay a $30 registration fee. Each player will receive a Philadelphia Union T-shirt. To register or for information, please click on: http://philadelphiaunion.com/Default.aspx
