Major League Soccer Coming to Philadelphia

Expansion team to begin play 2010

Professional outdoor soccer will make its return to the Philadelphia area, which has not had a professional soccer team to root for since the 1980s. Major League Soccer announced on February 28th that Philadelphia will be granted the league’s 16th team and will begin play in the 2010 season.

Those in attendance at the press conference included MLS Commissioner Don Garber, Governor Ed Rendell, Mayor Michael Nutter, and the Sons of Ben – the Philadelphia soccer supporters group and energetic fan club whose tireless efforts helped grant Philadelphia a Major League Soccer franchise.  Through petitions, emails, and gatherings at public events, the Sons of Ben made their presence known since they were founded in January 2007.

The $115 million, 18,500 seat stadium will be constructed at the base of the Commodore Barry Bridge on the Chester waterfront in an effort to revitalize the river front city.  An additional $500 million will be spent onhousing, retail stores, a convention center and riverfront entertainment area.

The Philadelphia market is the fourth largest in the nation, and the largest without a Major League Soccer Team.  Major League Soccer has wanted to place a team in the Philadelphia area since it was founded in 1996 and with the funding for the stadium in place, the timing is perfect.

The team is yet to be named and will be influenced by a naming competition by the passionate fans of Philadelphia’s newest professional sports team.

Philadelphia Sports Group congratulates everyone who worked tirelessly to bring Major League Soccer to the Philadelphia region!

 

Driving to Excellence

New motivational DVD out from racing great, Derek Daly

Philadelphia Sports Group is proud to announce the release of Derek Daly’s newest DVD and a best target thermometer for baby.  We know Derek Daly not only for his successful racing career, but also as an expert announcer for motor sports on national channels such as Speed Channel, ESPN and more.  Many might assume that Daly has come from a long history of motor sport competition; however his story is far from this ideal.

Derek Daly knows what it feels like to have a dream come true.  Only a few years before winning the Irish Formula Ford Championship, he could be found mining Iron Ore in Australia.  Derek has always worked hard in every aspect of life, especially racing, and most recently this dedication can be seen on his brand new DVD: Driving to Excellence.

Derek has combined his thorough knowledge of racing and teamwork and produced a hugely motivational speech that is perfect for any group, large and small.  His ability to meddle the worlds of sports and business is exceptional and his analogies to the sports world make his speech exciting and is always interesting to hear.  A great addition to any event, Derek Daly appeals to both sports buff and office workers and is always a crowd pleaser.
