When PPL Park was being built, Philadelphia Union fans imagined what it could become: a grand soccer locus that routinely hosted large crowds. That came to be. Now fans may need to envision the year-old stadium in a new way: bigger. Union officials are developing long-term plans to expand the arena, contemplating a three-phase process, the first to increase seating from 18,500 to 20,000. If all goes well, that construction could start in 2014, according to team chief executive officer Nick Sakiewicz.

NBC SPORTS and USA Sevens officials see big things for the future of the Collegiate Rugby Championship, and they say that begins with the stability provided by a multiyear agreement with PPL Park. Over the weekend, officials announced an agreement to extend the tournament's stay on the Chester waterfront through 2014. PPL Park, home of the Union, has hosted the event for the last 2 years after the inaugural event was held at Columbus (Ohio) Crew Stadium. "When there is year-to-year uncertainty you are enjoying it, but you're not invested in planning for the long term," tournament director Dan Lyle said.
