Timbers, Alaska Airlines Unveil 2011 Jerseys


PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Timbers and Alaska Airlines, official jersey partner of the MLS club, today unveiled the team’s official uniforms, training wear and apparel line that will be featured during the Timbers’ inaugural Major League Soccer (MLS) season in 2011.

Dubbed “Runway on the Runway,” the event was held in the 64,000-square-foot hangar of Alaska Airlines’ sister carrier, Horizon Air, at Portland International Airport. Timbers players and Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air employees revealed the team’s official look to some 1,000 fans and supporters. To further mark the occasion, Alaska Airlines unveiled a specially themed Boeing 737-700 emblazoned with “Proud Jersey Sponsor” alongside the team logo and iconic green, yellow and white Timbers scarf.

The team’s primary jersey, produced by adidas, the official athletic sponsor and product supplier of MLS since the league’s inception in 1996, features a Ponderosa green that pays tribute to the Timbers’ rich history and exciting future in MLS. The body fabric, which prominently displays the Alaska Airlines logo and Timbers primary logo, is specially engineered with the Timbers signature chevron repeating down the middle, tying together the two shades of green that make up the body of the shirt. The classic look reflects the diversity of color one would see in a lush Oregon forest.

Timbers swap Cronin for DC stalwart Perkins

Former Goalkeeper of the Year set to man nets in Portland

The Portland Timbers made a dynamic move to shore up their position in goal for 2011 on Friday, trading current netminder Steve Cronin to D.C. United for former MLS Goalkeeper of the Year Troy Perkins.

Perkins, who was named the league’s top goalkeeper in 2006 and won back-to-back Supporters’ Shields with DC in 2006 and 2007, also spent two seasons in Norway, where he helped lead Valerenga IF to the 2008 Norwegian Cup. He also won an MLS Cup with D.C. United in 2004, starting 16 games during the regular season that year.

“Today, we’ve acquired one of the best American goalkeepers in MLS,” Timbers head coach John Spencer said in a statement. “With his valuable MLS experience and proven leadership, Troy has the ability and character to make a huge impact in Portland. I am delighted to have him on board with us, and we feel we’ve taken another step in the right direction with our plans to build a very competitive group that can compete with the best in MLS in 2011.”

Portland reach benchmark in season ticket sales
10,000 season tickets sold for Timbers' inaugural MLS campaign


PORTLAND, Ore. – There’s perhaps no better way for the Portland Timbers to start a new year than by proudly reaching a new benchmark for season ticket sales in advance of the 2011 season.

On Monday, the Timbers announced that they have surpassed 10,000 season tickets sold and that they would cap that number at 12,000. Additionally, the 23 suites at the soon-to-be renamed PGE Park are also sold out.

“Ten thousand is a number we were shooting for,” Timbers chief operating officer Mike Golub said. “It’s a really good goal for us to meet.”

Golub said the team “comfortably surpassed” that mark by New Year’s Eve, which was the deadline for automatically obtaining additional benefits – such as additional events, gifts and perks – as a founding member of The Axe Society.

The season ticket packages include 20 home games – 17 MLS games plus three additional friendlies. Season ticket holders also have the right to purchase their regular seats for any playoff games.

Portland are confident they can sell the remaining season ticket packages and are hopeful for a string of sellouts during the Timbers’ inaugural MLS campaign.

Cooper: I'm just coming into my best years

New Timbers striker thrilled to be part of the Portland buzz

PORTLAND, Ore. — Kenny Cooper is ready to return to Major League Soccer and the Portland Timbers are ready to have him.

The Timbers announced Monday they have signed Cooper pending the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate. After two injury-riddled seasons with TSV 1860 Munich in Germany’s 2.Bundesliga, the 26-year-old striker returned to MLS through the allocation process.

“I know there’s a lot of excitement and huge buzz for the team around [Portland],” Cooper said on Monday, speaking from Munich. “I crave being in that environment.”

Cooper played four seasons at FC Dallas (2006-09) and tallied 40 goals and 10 assists in 90 regular-season matches. He was named to the MLS Best XI in 2008.

...and now it begins!

Trialists include 2010 D2 standouts; Pore excited for camp

PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers inaugural season in MLS passed another important milestone on Monday when the first practice was held.

The team will train together daily at the Adidas facility this week.

For Ryan Pore, who played for the second-division Timbers last year and was one of the MLS franchise’s first signings, the day was greeted with excitement.

“There’s been a lot of anticipation for this day. To have it finally here is exciting,” said Pore, who stayed in Portland over the past few months and soaked up every new announcement. “It’s kind of a dream come true.”

Dike Undergoes Successful Surgery

Bright Dike expected to miss next 6-9 months


PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Timbers announced today that forward Bright Dike underwent successful surgery Monday afternoon to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The procedure was performed by Dr. Jonathan Greenleaf, the team’s director of medicine, at Sports Medicine Oregon in Tigard, Ore.

Dike, 24, is expected to miss 6-9 months of action. He sustained his injury in the opening 20 minutes of last Friday’s preseason match against the Ventura County Fusion in Ventura, Calif. He returned to Portland on Sunday.

PORTLAND, Ore.— The Portland Timbers today announced that midfielder Jack Jewsbury has been named the club’s captain as it enters its inaugural Major League Soccer season in 2011. Timbers head coach John Spencer made the announcement.

Jewsbury, 29, was acquired by the Timbers on March 1 in a trade with Sporting Kansas City. He has played the past eight seasons in MLS with Sporting KC, appearing in 195 regular-season matches and recording 15 goals and 21 assists.

Timbers rename home stadium JELD-WEN Field

Portland partner up with Oregon-based manufacturing company



PORTLAND, Ore. – When the Portland Timbers open up their home for the first time in their inaugural MLS season on April 14 against the Chicago Fire, they will do on the pitch of a freshly renamed stadium.

At a ceremony on Monday in the concourse of Portland’s historic downtown stadium, team owner Merritt Paulson announced a new naming rights deal that effectively changes the name of PGE Park to JELD-WEN Field.

Portland fans: Timbers' debut "means everything"

Fans emotional as momentous occasion overshadows loss to Colorado


COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Adam Marshall and Jared Cushman broke off from a Timbers Army crowd gathered near the south entrance to Dick’s Sporting Goods Field prior to the game on Saturday night. They wandered to the gate and gazed for a few minutes through the bars, taking in the manicured field and the empty seats.

Marshall and Cushman were just two of about 500 Timbers faithful who came to Colorado to witness their team’s entrance into its inaugural MLS season.

“It means everything,” Marshall said. “All the hard work, not only by [owner] Merritt Paulson and the Timbers front office, but all the hard work of the Army and all the Timbers supporters have given to get us to the top level of American soccer. There’s so many emotions going through us.”

Marshall works for a beverage distributor, Cushman for a courier service. They have been Timbers fans for years and there was no way that they were going to miss their team’s inaugural MLS game.

Portland drop Chivas USA in US Open Cup play

Jewsbury tallies goal, assist as Timbers glide past Goats, 2-0


PORTLAND, Ore. – Jack Jewsbury skidded a low ball into the net from 35 yards in the 84th minute to break a scoreless tie and lift Portland Timbers on their way to a 2-0 victory over Chivas USA in a US Open Cup play-in game on Tuesday.

WATCH: Highlights: http://www.portlandtimbers.com/video...=1957&id=13212

The game was the first for the Timbers in Portland since its ascension to MLS and drew a sellout crowd of 5,061 to Merlo Field on the campus of the University of Portland.

Jewsbury, who entered the game in the 71st minute, was the second wind that Portland needed late in the match, bailing out a team that controlled the run of action for nearly the entire game but had been unable to break through

Coach Spencer: Fans aren't going to win this game for us

Coach says Timbers can't get wrapped up in emotions of opener


Eugene, Ore. – While fans of the Portland Timbers are gearing up for an emotional and enthusiastic reception for the first Major League Soccer game at refurbished JELD-WEN Field, coach John Spencer is taking a more low-key approach to Thursday’s game against visiting Chicago (11 pm ET, ESPN2 & Deportes).

All of the anticipation surrounding the sold-out game will be merely window dressing if the Timbers don’t play well and earn their first MLS victory.

“It will be a special atmosphere, but we can’t stand around admiring our fans,” Spencer said after Monday’s practice. “You’ve got to get your head in the game and play well.”

All systems go for Portland's JELD-WEN debut

Franchise looking for first MLS win as Timbers fever grips town


PORTLAND, Ore. – JELD-WEN Field made a spectacular first impression on members of the Portland media, the team and other guests assembled Tuesday for a luncheon at the refurbished stadium.

Work crews attended to some of the final details while the small gathered crowd took in the bright green expanse of turf and the gleaming new features of the stadium, including the KeyBank Club Level.

Excitement for the Timbers’ arrival as an MLS franchise is probably higher this week than it was for the season-opener at Colorado. On Thursday night, the Timbers and their fans will usher in a new era for the city.

“For me, it means we’re realizing the potential of the game in this city,” said technical director and general manager Gavin Wilkinson, who came to Portland 10 years ago as a player.

Take a look inside JELD-WEN Field: http://pgepark.io-media.com/

JELD-WEN Field features a new east-side grandstand, new locker-room facilities and wide range of renovations and upgrades. It is the latest in a series of improvements to an athletic field that has been a gathering place in the city for almost 120 years.

“Thursday can’t come soon enough, because I know everybody’s excited about it,” said midfielder Jeremy Hall. “We just want to get a win. That’s the most important thing right now. We want to show that we’re going to be a tough team to beat his year, especially at home.”

Re: Portland Timbers Soccer Club

JELD-WEN Field's design "give[s] the Timbers an amazing home field advantage"

Architect tells how the new field helps the team


Fans streaming into JELD-WEN Field will do more than a few double takes at this Thursday’s home opener against Chicago. The North End rafters that for years have rung with the sound of “You Are My Sunshine” and “No Pity In The Rose City” are still there. But over on the 18th Avenue side is the brand spanking new woodwork of the eastern stand.

The turf will be familiar too. The eye is saturated with thrilling green as soon as the fan enters the stands. It also stretches right to the advertising boards, like baize on a billiard table.

But San Francisco-based architect Stephen Sefton of Ellerbe Becket, Inc. (an AECOM company) points out the little details that will bring the stadium alive for spectators. The brief was to turn a stadium, dating mostly from the 1930s, into a state of the art MLS stadium.

“The design grew out of a desire to provide a solution that was regional and also really expressed Portland,” said Sefton recently. They looked at the materiality of the old stadium and extended it into the modern construction
