WHAT WE ARE, WHO WE ARE, AND WHAT WE STAND FOR

Philly Football Daily is an independent news site that provides daily coverage of the Beautiful Game across the Philadelphia region and beyond.

Our coverage, which is provided by independent local reporters, includes High School, College, and the Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer. In the offseason, we also provide coverage of the English Premier League and soccer from elsewhere around the world.

Formerly, this site was known as UnionFanTV, which began as a solo podcast that was launched in Jan. of 2017. Philly Football Daily aims to grow the sport of soccer across the Philadelphia region in addition to growing the confidence, competence, and reputations of our team, which is comprised of reporters, artists, filmmakers, and more.
