The venue is home to the Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer. Subaru Park opened on June 27th, 2010, and has a capacity of 18,500 for soccer games and 26,000 for concerts.

Subaru Park was designed as an initial step for economic development on the waterfront, with additional plans calling for a riverwalk amidst other entertainment, retail, and residential projects. The stadium was constructed by T.N. Ward Company, which is based in Ardmore.

Subaru Park opened on June 27th, 2010, as PPL Park. The naming rights changed hands in 2016 when the park was renamed Talen Energy Stadium. The name changed to Subaru Park in 2020.
