PORTLAND, Ore. – The Timbers Army is arguably the most dedicated fanbase in Major League Soccer.
And their commitment is being recognized Saturday when the Timbers host Real Salt Lake. It will be the 100th consecutive regular season sellout at Providence Park, according to the team.
To honor the achievement, the Timbers will give away a custom designed patch to the first 7,500 fans at Saturday night’s match. The team will also wear special training tops during warm-ups.
The streak began in the team’s inaugural game on April 14, 2011. Over the five years, more than two million fans have walked through the gates at Providence Park. Those fans have seen Timber Joey cut off 205 log slabs during the 99 games.
The Timbers are 49-19-31 during the sellout stretch. They’ll go for win number 50 against Real Salt Lake. The defending MLS champions are currently in sixth place and holding the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.
