On Wednesday night at the Trocadero Theatre, “Sons of Ben: The Movie”

 debuted in Philly at the Trocadero in front of many members of the Philadelphia Union’s
loud and crazy supporters’ club that made the film possible. The Sons of Ben overcame significant adversity to help bring an MLS
franchise to the region before embracing their new home in Chester by
doing important charity work in the beleaguered town.

the city’s economic development plan.

According to, “The movie’s roots can be traced back to James, who was childhood friends
with filmmaker Jeff Bell. Intrigued by the unique concept that fans of a
team could come before the team itself, Bell reached out to James about
the potential for a documentary and began filming at PPL Park in 2012. ”
