Portland Timbers 2018 Shirts



Portland Timbers Shirt on eBay

Portland Timbers are an American football team who were founded in 2009 and who will compete in the MLS for the first time in 2011. It was announced in March 2009 that they will be the 18th team to join the MLS, replacing the currently USL First Division club of the same name. They will be playing their home matches at PGE Park which holds around 22-23,000 supporters.

The arrival of the Timbers in Major League Soccer will be a boon for the game in the Pacific North-West. Joined at the same time in 2011 with Vancouver, they will clash with 2007 Franchise the Seattle Sounders FC. The Portland-Seattle and Portland–Vancouver rivalries formed in the years that the three were playing in the NASL and USL.

These geographic rivalries will continue with the fan-based Cascadia Cup, that was created to formalize a competition between the sides.

It has taken the club nearly two years to complete their move to the MLS. Back in 2007, Merritt Paulson led a group that bought the Portland Beavers and USL Timbers with the object being to enter the MLS. However, the team's PGE Park stadium failed to fit the criteria to obtain an MLS license. Paulson announced in 2008 that they would renovate the arena to meet the requirements. The MLS was in favour of this proposal and the Portland Timbers were announced as an MLS team in 2009.
