eUpdate – Timbers MLS Debut and Ticket Info, High School All-Star Games and Upcoming Events

    This week marks the official launch of Portland’s first new major professional sports franchise in more than four decades. The Portland Timbers play their first regular season Major League Soccer game on the road Saturday against the defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids. The game begins at 6:00 p.m. on FSN Northwest – fans can watch the match at the Timbers official viewing party at Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub in downtown Portland. With the home opener less than a month away and more than 12,000 season tickets sold, the Timbers are poised for a spirited inaugural season in the newly named JELD-WEN Field. The addition of permanent seats surrounding the playing surface is expected to quickly produce one of the most intimate, intimidating and authentic soccer environments in the entire country.
