I just starting getting emails from PPL Park about the Lehigh/Penn St lacrosse game (I am a season ticket holder of the Philly Union who play there). They are calling it the Whitman’s Sampler Independence Classic at PPL Park on Saturday, March 9. It is a tripleheader and features these games and times:
Game 1 St. Johns v. Syracuse @ Noon
Game 2 Penn v. Villanova @ 2:30 PM
Game 3 Lehigh v. PSU @ 5:00 PM
Tickets went on sale 12/3 and range from $25 to $45. Not a bad deal for 3 games. PPL Park is a beautiful smaller stadium in Chester, PA which sits on the Delaware underneath the Commodore Barry Bridge. Capacity is about 18,000, and you sit very close to the action, with not a bad seat in the house. Only problem with PPL is the location. Don’t plan on getting lunch or dinner near the stadium or a beer after the game. Stadium sits by itself, in a pretty dangerous area, with nothing in walking distance.
