Sons of Ben: Mexico City CCL Semi-finals

Thursday, August 12, 2021

Mexico City



The Philadelphia Union took care of business against Deportivo Saprissa and Atlanta United in the first two rounds of the CONCACAF Champions League.  Next up is Club America in the Semi-finals and we are headed south (way south) to cheer on The Boys in Blue in Mexico City this August!

This is a big game for the Philadelphia Union and the objective is to walk away at least a goal up before Club America comes to Chester in September for the second leg.  Club America plays at Estadio Azteca which is also the official home of the Mexico national football team and regarded as one of the most famous and iconic football stadiums in the world.  You do not want to miss this trip to see the Philadelphia Union continue on this historic journey.

The match will be on Thursday, August 12th at 9:00PM local time.  We arrive on Thursday and check-out on Friday afternoon.  If you want to stay an extra night or two, that option is available.  We are staying in the Polanco area which is very nice and regarded as one of the safest sections of Mexico City.

Philly Sports Trips is offering a full package which includes hotel, game day transportation, tailgate, and game ticket to keep the Sons of Ben and Union fans together in one place.  Flight reservations are up to individuals, but we recommend connecting flights from Philadelphia Airport or direct flights from Newark Airport.  Our hotel is the Hyatt Regency Mexico City which we know the group will love.  On game day, we have an amazing tailgate planned with all-inclusive buffet and drinks at PGBBQ Mexico City.

Our Tailgate includes:

  • Jalapeño cheddar sausage sliders
  • BBQ ribs
  • Pulled pork nachos
  • Chili fries and coleslaw
  • Open bar for 2.5 hours including rum, tequila, vodka, gin, mezcal, wine, beer, soda, and water

Charter bus transportation from the tailgate to the game is included in this package.  The charter bus will also take us back to hotel on Thursday night after the match is over.
