Portland Timbers Tickets & 2020 Game Schedule
The Portland Timbers are one of the most beloved soccer clubs in the United States. Professional soccer in Portland, and the Timbers name, can be traced back to the 1970s when an NASL team by the name of the Portland Timbers was created. It was one of the first professional soccer clubs in the Northwest. Throughout the years, the Timbers name was passed around different leagues, with different ownership, but the support of the Portland soccer fans stayed consistent.
In 2009, the Portland Timbers were announced as the 18th team in MLS, and the club joined the league in 2011. The Timbers finished with the top record in the Western Conference and advanced to the conference finals in their third year. More than anything, the Timbers have become known for their fan support. The “Timbers Army” is one of the most fanatical groups in American sports. It is not uncommon for Timbers fans to be camping outside of Providence Park days before a game.
The amazing fan support has created great demand for Timbers tickets. The biggest games on Portland's schedule each season are their Western Conference matches against the LA Galaxy, Los Angeles FC, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. Other big Timbers games include those against the Atlanta United, Inter Miami CF, New York Red Bulls and NY FC. Timbers fans expect the team to compete in 2020 for a top spot in the MLS Playoffs and hopefully get on a run that would see Portland playing in the MLS Cup Final.
The biggest showdowns in the West are the Cascadia Cup matches between the Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. The team which finishes the best record among the three is crowned as the Cascadia Cup champs for the year. The rivalries are real between these three, so do not miss your opportunity to see a Timbers vs Sounders or Timbers vs Whitecaps game in 2020.
