April 14th was a big day for Oregon Soccer. The Portland Timbers had their first home game of the season and the State of Oregon declared it Timbers Day! If you were there in person to witness the Timbers Army singing the National Anthem then you truly understand what a memorable experience it was. We were lucky enough to attend and be a part of the Timbers Experience. We tried to capture as much as we could to share with our fans and patrons. You can watch footage and check out our pictures at Timbers Home Opener
If you have the chance to go to a game, DO IT! You will love it and quickly be transformed into a Timbers Fan. I went into the game a true Sounders fan from growing up in Seattle but quickly realized that the Sounders games are nothing compared to the Timbers games. Being there and witnessing the Timbers Army with all their crazy chants and antics makes the Timbers who they are and makes going to a game truly an enjoyable experience.
The renovated stadium looks awesome and it is super easy to get to by all forms of transportation. After the game the Timbers players even went up into the stands with the Army to receive their log pieces which was amazing on a lot of levels, to see professional athletes wanting to be with their fans and supporters and to see the love that the fans have for this new team!
We hope that you take part in this once in a lifetime experience of going to a game in the Timbers first MLS season. We are even providing buses and tickets to the game on May 6th and June 19th. The May 6th bus is only $15 (tix bought separate) that’s cheaper then parking and gas combined. It is for ages 21 and over. To purchase just give us a call or stop by the front desk. We want to do everything possible to make sure our customers have as great of an experience at a Timbers game like we did!
