The Philadelphia Union are featured in an MLS promo from the new NBC Sports Network

Back in August Major League Soccer and NBC announced a new broadcast partnership. As part of the deal NBC will air 45 MLS games and 4 U.S. Men’s National Team games each year.

The majority of the MLS games will air on the newly launched NBC Sports Network, which used to be Versus/OLN/Outdoor Life Network/That Channel Showed Fishing All the Time. The rebranded NBC Sports Network launched on January 2, 2012. Prior to the launch NBC released the following MLS promo featuring the Union. Video below.

The promo was shot at Red Bull Arena back on October 20, 2011 – a game the Union dropped 1-0. Brian Carroll, Carlos Valdes, and Faryd Mondragon are the Union players captured by NBC’s slo-mo cameras. 

By the way, we’re just a little over two months away from the Union opening the 2012 season on the road in Portland.
