Portland Soccer / Football

There are men’s and women’s professional soccer teams based in Portland, Oregon where OPAS is located. The men’s team is the “Portland Timbers” and the women are the “Portland Thorns”. Last weekend (September 2, 2017), I attended the Thorns vs the Washington DC Spirit game. It was a beautiful day for a soccer game. We won 4-0! The stadium was quite full. Attendance was 19,141 people and there was no doubt that almost all of them were Thorns fans.

The Thorns’ average home attendance this season is 17,335 a game. That’s more than double the turnout of all but one of the nine other teams in the National Women’s Soccer League! Needless to say, both of the Timbers and Thorns are well-supported by many of the locals. This is why Portland is sometimes called Soccer City, USA!
