Jim Curtin talks Philadelphia Union's first trophy, plus the story behind the Captain America Supporters' Shield

What do Captain America and the Philadelphia Union have in common? Both have the Shield. Extratime brings you the story of the cosplay costume turned “Supporters’ Shield.” We talk to Jeremy Sullivan, who loaned his shield to the club at the last minute to get the full story, then bring on Union manager Jim Curtin for the story behind Philly’s rise, the way the club came together in a difficult year, why he’d love to coach in Europe and an audacious prediction about the USMNT at the 2026 World Cup. Plus, all the crazy moments from Decision Day presented by AT&T, our MLS award winners and mail from around the league!
