The Portland Timbers Army - Moustache Football Club  July 6, 2017 – 11:10 pm

The Portland Timbers Army

Who dared to say that "soccer" did not take into MLS?Lost in the depths of Oregon,Portland,"the city of roses",home to the colony of the most fervent supporters of North America: The Timbers Army (the army of loggers).Portrait of a group of fans that has nothing to envy to the European forums.


Unlike most clubs in Major League Soccer (MLS),the Portland Timbers are not located within a megalopolis that radiates throughout the region.Main city in Oregon,Portland and its 583, 000 inhabitants paled next to Seattle,located in the state of Washington and distant 280 kilometers,economic and cultural influence is greater than that of the pink city.With its coastline and its proximity to the Canadian city of Vancouver,the Emerald City has indeed the development of cross-border economy.

It is therefore in a position of "withdrawal" or on the outskirts of Seattle that Portland has developed.This geographical presentation is not neutral in the identity formation of people and recalls the analysis that we made ​​during the drafting of specific small derby [click here] . The rivalry between the two cities geographically close (across the U.S.) was a strong argument for returning Timbers in MLS according to the blog Skylight Opposite ...


Because yes,after nine years in the United Soccer Leagues First Division,the franchise in Oregon is back in the top flight of American soccer,joining 16 other teams already in MLS.Let there be no mistake,the team has existed since 1975 and appeared in NASL but was not selected during the creation of the MLS in 1993.Steadily in recent years growth media,the North American League seems to find its audience wants and gain fame by attracting famous players of the old continent.Apart from this development "exogenous",the League also wants to create an emulsion by the arrival of two new franchises: the Vancouver Whitescaps and therefore Portland Timbers, strengthening the implementation of Soccer on the northern Pacific coast since the Seattle Sounders present since 2009.

A league that has a snowball effect in the region since last year,Seattle has managed to attract more than 32, 000 spectators on average.A very respectable audience that made ​​the reputation of the franchise this year will lead to real derbies between the Sounders,Whitecaps and Timbers.A rivalry that reached its apogee in 2004 with the creation of the Cascadia Cup trophy created by fans of the three clubs and rewards the best teams at the end of games played between them.
