About SOBW

The Sons of Benjamin West is a group of soccer supporters that is passionate about playing, coaching, cheering and talking about the beautiful game. We support soccer at all levels. Our coed members participate and cheer on the Philadelphia Union, Swarthmore College soccer teams, Swarthmore Soccer Club teams, and local recreational leagues.

Based in Delaware County and centered in Swarthmore, we are named after the local painter Benjamin West. Benjamin West was a close friend to Ben Franklin (the namesake of the Sons of Ben) and best known for a style of historic painting he called EPIC REPRESENTATON.
