MLS Round 26: Portland Timbers
Away Game Day Info
Saturday, August 10th, Kickoff 8:00pm
The Whitecaps, after over two months without a win, finally got a full three points! Felipe’s 84th minute goal on the pass from Russell Teibert was his first and last of the season. Why the last? Felipe has been traded to DC United and has already left Vancouver. Thanks for the win, Felipe, and good luck.
This weekend the Caps are down in Portland to dispute their final Cascadia Cup match of 2019. To win the cup, the Whitecaps need to beat Portland this Saturday, then have Portland beat or draw Seattle on Friday the 23rd.

You may be aware of the fight that the 107IST / Timbers Army, as well as ECS from Seattle, are having with the league over the right to display anti-fascist imagery and messaging in support of human rights in the stands. As members of the ISC, the Southsiders have also spoken with club and league officials about the issues with the MLS Fan Code of Conduct, and support our Cascadian rivals on this issue. The Timbers Army have asked that anyone who wishes to display the Iron Front anti-fascist logo do so as an act of solidarity. Clothing and “personal” banners using the logo are permitted in the stadium. For more information see the Timbers Army’s many blog posts on the subject: https://timbersarmy.org/TimbersArmyBlog and this joint statement from ECS, Gorilla FC and 107IST:
There is a spray station planned for Saturday, making Iron Front stencils available should you want to personalize any clothing or other items. There is also an available source of blue t-shirts for a minimum $5 US donation. Email email@example.com for details.
