159 Goalkeeper Steve Clark made his 159th MLS start in the match. Clark had to be subbed out in the second half due to injury. It was the first time in Clark's MLS career that he did not play the entire match when making a start. 

5 The match kicked off Portland's 29th season as a professional club. It was the fifth time the club has faced the Whitecaps in a season opener in all eras of the Timbers. 

11 With the start, midfielder Diego Chara has now competed in 11 different seasons for the club. The Colombian midfielder is the first player in club history to play in 11 seasons with Portland.
