Portland Timbers Reach 9,000 Season Tickets Sold

As you probably already know the Portland Timbers launched their new MLS website yesterday. The new site has received a very positive reception from fans for its polished look. After doing some digging around on the page I found this interesting statement from the ticket sales section.

"The season is just months away, and 75% of the season seat inventory is already sold out, including 20 sections. Plus, invest before December 31,2010 and gain access to the ultra-exclusive Axe Society."

The Timbers FO have stated they plan on capping season tickets at 12,000. So if they have sold 75% of that inventory we are standing at 9,000 tickets with a little over 4 months left. Some people might look at that number and be disappointed, but I feel like there are plenty of soccer enthusiasts in the area that are simply playing the waiting game. The deadline to join the Axe Society should be an incentive to pay up for tickets as Christmas gifts, because some of the benefits sound pretty nice. The expansion draft next week and the jersey launch on December 9th should both keep the Timbers in the media.

If you want to buy tickets in the Timbers Army I suggest you click over to their website and order up. You don't want to miss out on this opportunity to be a season ticket holder in the inaugural season!


  1. I believe I created that wallpaper image above. I posted it to my blog then to the Portland Timbers facebook page. I'm not upset or anything. Just wanted to give you a heads up and mention that the actual photograph of the wooden fence was taking from The artist name is "niklasK." Just wanted to make sure credit was given where credit was due. Nice site, by the way.

  2. I'm sorry about that Steve.. still fairly new to this blogging thing and I do need to get in better habit of citing where I find images ect...

    I love the desktop you made. Really great shot of the fence by niklasK, and I love the look of the logo as a watermark of sorts on the wood. I actually have it on my laptop right now.

  3. No worries. I was flattered to see it being used!
