Timbers Army Unite
RCTID! The Portland Timbers have been in Portland since 1975 playing in the NASL as an expansion team but, 10 years ago, the Portland Timbers soccer club organized as a major league team in the Western conference when the city of Portland was awarded a Major League Soccer expansion berth.
Games started in 2011 in the newly remodeled stadium located in the Goose Hollow neighborhood. It's a well-known fact that the Timbers Army is the loudest and proudest of soccer fans in America.
Named the Timbers for Oregon's vast history of logging, the team sports the colors green, gold and white and on game days Portland is awash with flag-draped Timbers fans, some with their faces painted.
The Timbers home field has a long and interesting history. In 1893 the site was named Multnomah Field and housed sports fields and rudimentary grandstands. Multnomah Civic Stadium was built in 1926 and over the years the name has changed many times.
In 1923, President Warren G. Harding made an appearance during a Rose Festival coronation event. Elvis got fans All Shook Up in 1957 and David Bowie added his Modern Love in 1987. Pele played his last official game at the stadium in 1977 at the North American Soccer Bowl, and actor Kurt Russell played for a month on the minor league Mavericks baseball team.
