Thorns Celebrate Title at Jeld -Wen today

The last time a Portland franchise won a title was the 1977 Trail Blazers.  That changed Saturday in Rochester, NY.

After beating the Western NY Flash on the road, and returning home to a pretty large crowd at PDX, Portland Thorns FC are officially celebrating today at Jeld-Wen Field.

Party starts at noon, or you can watch the stream at:  http://www.portlandtimbers.com/thorns-live

 

National Team members weren’t able to take part today except Rachel Buehler who was able to hop on a plane after the game and make it home.

Speakers include: Mayor of Portland Charlie Hales, Owner Merritt Paulson, Head Coach Cindy Parlow Cone, players Rachel Buehler and Karina LeBlanc.

general theme:  thank you to the amazing fans who filled the stands!
