Portland Timbers – April 23rd
In 2011 the Portland Timbers became Major League Soccer’s 18th franchise, deeming Portland as the Soccer City U.S.A. Since then, the name has rung truer than ever, especially after the Timbers became national champions in 2015 when they defeated the Columbus Crew to claim the MLS Cup. Don’t miss your chance to join the excitement and cheer on the Timbers this weekend as they take on Real Salt Lake
