As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Caron and Quentin won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Real Salt Lake match on October 19th, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Caron a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?

Taking my Godsons to see their first football match about 5 years ago and sitting with the Timbers Army :)

What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?

Walking through the door and being treated like royalty, then finding out we were sitting next to an old friend, AND near to the people we sit next to all season, who were in the KeyBank Club too that night!!! 

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  

Ricketts- love that clean sheet record. 

What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers versus Chivas USA?

3:1 win. Everyone else loses and we win the Supporters Shield :)))))

This is a great way to give back to the Axe Society members. Hopefully everyone will get to be part of it over the coming seasons. It doesn't change my mind about where we have our current season tickets but it was fun seeing how the other half live:) A wonderful way to end the season. Thank you very much. 

Thank you Caron and Quentin and congratulations again!

And of course, thanks to all our Axe Society members for their wonderful support this season!

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Erik and his sons won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Seattle Sounders match on October 13th, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Erik a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?

My first memory of the Timbers would be back in the early 80's when Rod Stewart played on a team out of LA I think.  

What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?

The Goal.

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  

Ricketts.  I think I have seen better games but a clean sheet is what it took for the 3 points.

What is your prediction for the next match, Portland Timbers vs. Real Salt Lake?

 

A win by Portland. Always predict the win.

The Axe experience was AWESOME!!! Felt like I was flying first class.  Thank you so much for the whole experience.  

Congratulations again to Erik, Cole and Wyatt, and thank you for your support!

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Dan and Teresa won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Real Salt Lake match on August 21st, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Dan a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?

It was a USL game when you could go down to the beer garden on the field to get beer and watch the game. Gavin Wilkinson was playing as the toughest defender on the field and I thought it was great to be so close and to see great soccer like I was on the field with them. The ball would even fly in to knock over a beer or table once in a while.

What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?

When Kalif Alhassan scored in the 86th minute! We thought we would win for sure but the 6 minutes of extra time was enough for RSL to score a heartbreaking to tie which was of course, the least favorite moment.

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  

Diego Valeri for his assist, penalty kick and all-around excellent play in the midfield.

What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers versus Seattle Sounders?
 
It will be a difficult game because Seattle is scratching and scraping for points to climb up the table. The Timbers will be hungry for a win but tired for the 3rd game in only one week. I would love to see Futty play because he knows how much a Cascadia Cup game means but I feel that Wallace has found his stride again and the defense will be putting out extra effort to keep us in the game. I'm looking for a 2 to 1 win that will be another tense squeaker, including a late goal for the Timbers to win!

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any gameday superstitions? Favorite pieces of Timbers memorabilia? Feedback about your Axe experience?  

We bought our season ticket seats with two other families and sit together for games in section 113. I am still trying to find the perfect clothing combination for wins but I know that where ever I am on game day, I must wear some Timbers gear! My favorite item is my Timbers cap that now has autographs from Futty, Jack, Alvas, Silvestre, and Rashawn on the bill thanks to our lucky night as Axe Society Members of the Match! We loved the experience and were flattered by all the personal attention that the staff gave to us. Our seats we great but a little crowded with loiterers standing behind us and even in our seats for the center field view. I can hardly blame them; it was a great place to watch the game. It was great that both my wife and I could come together since it was our 19th wedding anniversary the night before on the 20th. It has been a wonderful week. Thanks so much for the opportunity and the special hospitality Chris Wilson, Bonnie and Carol all gave us.

Happy anniversary Dan and Teresa, and thank you for your wonderful support!

This weekend, the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders will face each other for the second time this season. The first match saw the Timbers draw even with Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field, and there is no doubt that many Timbers fans will once again make the trip.

Every match between the Timbers and Sounders is important, but this time around there is even more at stake. Not only is Portland looking to potentially reach the top of the MLS table, but the Timbers could also take sole possession of first place in the Cascadia Cup table. Arguably the most hyped match of the season, an expected 66,000 fans will be at CenturyLink Field to see the Sounders host the Timbers in a game that also features the first home match for new Sounders signing and USMNT forward Clint Dempsey.

As the season wears on, the costs of traveling to away Cascadia matches can start to add up. This season, our friends at 76 would like to support the fans that support the team. All you need to do is Instagram a shot of you traveling to or from this weekend's match with the hashtag #76roadtrip and you'll be eligible to win a $100 gas card and an autographed Timbers team jersey

@daarontaylor won for his post in May when he made the trip to Vancouver, B.C. to see the Timbers play the Whitecaps. Post your picture of your trip to Seattle for a chance to win! Not going to Seattle this time? Never fear, the contest will also be happening for the Cascadia Cup rivalry match October 6th at Vancouver.

Onward, Rose City!

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Cathy and Mark won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. FC Dallas match on August 17th, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Cathy a few questions after the match:

When was your first match supporting the Timbers?

We started attending Timbers games regularly in 2009 with limited attendance prior to that.  One of our first memories was the raising of the banner honoring Clive Charles—we’re UP grads and long-time UP supporters and it was very special to be there that night.

What was your favorite moment of this match?

Our favorite moment tonight was Nagbe’s goal—a run of play goal with an excellent assist by Valeri.

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?

Diego Valeri—he’s the lynch pin in the middle and playmaker—two assists tonight.

What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers versus Real Salt Lake?

 Timber win 2-1—very similar game to Dallas—hard fought, possession oriented, many fouls

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom?

We enjoyed our Axe experience but are looking forward to being back with our SD2 friends—can’t beat the first row off the field for being in the action!

A big thanks to Cathy and Mark for being our guests and for their fantastic support!
