Soccer in Philadelphia is heating up! It’s that time of year where the groups will be selected for the citywide Unity Cup soccer tournament. Mayor Jim Kenney will join Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Philadelphia Soccer 2026 to unveil the 2023 Unity Cup jersey, and draw teams for the 7th Annual Philadelphia International Unity Cup.
The Philadelphia International Unity Cup is a World Cup-style tournament held over several months that unites the city’s neighborhoods and celebrates its diverse immigrant communities through soccer. The brainchild of Mayor Jim Kenney, the Unity Cup became an annual tradition after its massively successful inaugural year in 2016. Last year’s victor Team USA defeated Team Liberia at Lincoln Financial Field in October 2022.
