Major League Soccer is the professional soccer league in the United States. With 20 teams across the U.S. the MLS franchise has become increasingly popular in the past few years, expanding to cities such as Portland, Oregon. Portland has had a soccer team for many years, but in 2011 the MLS expanded to include both the Rose City (Portland) and Vancouver, B.C. Since that year the Portland Timbers organization has grown on and off the field – becoming one of the loudest soccer cities in the U.S. and according to the Bleacher Report, the best stadium for soccer fans.

This past weekend Portland brought home what is considered the Super Bowl of wins for soccer – the MLS Cup. We would like to congratulate the Portland Timber’s organization for this victory! We are proud to live in Portland and even prouder of our Timbers for bringing home the cup. This is just another reason to love Portland: http://www.wweek.com/2015/12/08/photos-and-video-from-the-portland-timbers-victory-parade-and-rally/.
