Philadelphia soccer fans have long been loyal to their team and it finally seems to have paid off but not in they way that you would most likely imagine. A New York Filmmaker has grown an interest and has decided to make them movie stars.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Sons of Ben are many things: Loud. Brash. Passionate. Always loyal, totally dedicated, and occasionally soused.

A New York filmmaker is deep into shooting a feature-length documentary about the rise of the rabid Philadelphia Union fan club, exploring its pivotal role in redefining the local soccer landscape.
