Penn Postdocs in the Community: German Postdoc Group attends Mexico-Germany soccer game at Lincoln Financial Field

Penn postdocs hold up flags at a professional soccer game in Philadelphia

On October 17, 2023, a group of Penn Postdocs joined over 60,000 Philly sports fans at Lincoln Financial Field to watch a friendly game between the German men’s national soccer team and its Mexican counterpart.

It was the second match of each side’s U.S. friendly tour and it gave many sports fans a preview of top-level international soccer that will be on offer during the 2026 World Cup in Philadelphia!

As many Penn Postdocs from Germany would say, “Deutschland vor, noch ein tor!”
