Providence Park

Get to the heart of Portland’s soccer obsession by visiting Providence Park — home of the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns FC soccer teams.

Originally built in 1926, Providence Park has long functioned as a gathering place to enjoy sports, music and community events. Despite a significant renovation in 2011, the stadium has maintained its charm by preserving some of its original wood benches.

Soccer fan or not, snag tickets to a match and you’re guaranteed some of the best people watching in the city. Sing along with the infamous Timbers Army or sit back, relax and take in the open-air view in the heart of Portland.
