Subaru Park (originally PPL Park and Talen Energy Stadium) is the Major League Soccer home of the Philadelphia Union out in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Subaru Park sits at 1 Stadium Drive, Chester, PA 19013, and in front of the Commodore Barry Bridge in front of the Delaware River. In addition to hosting soccer games, the venue has been home to Lacrosse matches, college football games, and rugby matches.
Here are the parking tips to know about so you don’t end up missing kickoff on game day!
How Much is Parking for a Philadelphia Union Game?
The further you park from the soccer stadium, the less you will have to pay. For example, Lot A, Lot B, and Lot C Subaru Park lots are the furthest official parking from the venue and go for $22 per game. Sons of Ben Lot, which is where tailgating occurs, also goes for $22 per match. Lot D and E are the closest parking lots to the venue, but they are only available to season ticket members.
Lot F is the closest parking lot to the venue and costs $40. Also, Lot G is a bit further away from the venue and goes for $30.
Finally, if you bring an RV or oversized camper trailer, you should park in Lot C.
Community Experience Via Parking
The Stadium Reviews features what their community has to say about the parking situation at the stadium. Below is what they have to say about their experience.
- Colin (10-13-2023): We parked in F Lot — the closest to the stadium, but easy to miss because it’s the easternmost lot, a few feet east of the Commodore Barry bridge. The lots are not in alphabetical sequence.
Subaru Park Handicap Parking
LOT B has ADA parking that fans can use for game day and events. ADA parking is limited, so plan to arrive early to the arena to claim a spot. If you have any questions on where to park or drop off and pick up fans, you can ask the parking attendants.
Is there Tailgating in the Parking Lots?
Tailgating takes place before Union matches each week. Union fans tend to meet at the Subaru Plaza a few hours before kickoff to begin the tailgating festivities. From there, they then walk to the arena singing and chanting for the Union.
Can I Take Public Transportation to the Venue?
Fans can use the SEPTA Wilmington/ Newark rail line to get to Chester Transportation Center. From there, the free shuttle service begins four hours before kickoff.
In addition, fans can use rideshare programs like Uber and Lyft to get to and from the soccer stadium. The rideshare pick-up and drop-off areas are at Lot E, between Seaport Drive and W. Front Street.
