The Timbers weren’t like most professional soccer teams. They began longer before Major League Soccer. The first Timbers played pro soccer in 1975! They were such a popular team in Portland, Oregon that their biggest fans called themselves The Timbers Army. When Major League Soccer added Portland, Oregon, to the list of cities getting soccer teams, the Timbers kept their name. They also kept their sprit. With few star players and a small city behind them, the Timbers won many home games. In 2015, they even won the MLS Cup –– the top award in Major League Soccer.
