UPDATE: In an incredibly close affair, Seattle narrowly edged Portland on the trivia front by a score of 795 to 737 though Portland had the top three individual scores. Thank you to both sides for playing and supporting both the clubs and the charities!
Today, as SEAvPDX Week, presented by 76® and benefiting the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette's Safety Net program, continues, another chance for fans to compete for their club arises, this time in a battle of wits during The SEA vs. PDX Trivia Challenge centering around soccer, regional, and specifically, Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders FC trivia. The competition is slated for 4:00pm PT and fans can play for free on their mobile devices or desktop by logging on to https://www.crowd.live/seavpdx and selecting which team they are representing. There is no limit on participation, and all fans are encouraged to take part.
Both Portland and Seattle’s YouTube channels will be livestreaming the trivia competition, which is hosted by former Timbers defender and current TV analyst Ross Smith, Sounders radio commentator Matt Johnson and former Timbers/Sounders midfielder Steve Zakuani. Johnson, Zakuani and Smith will also share more about each of the clubs’ chosen COVID-19 funds, the United Way of the Columbia-Willamette and Seattle Sounders FC Relief Fund, both raising awareness for the important work these organizations are doing in the Portland and Seattle communities and encouraging fans to learn more and donate if possible.
The highest average scores across four rounds of multiple-choice trivia will determine which club comes out on top. The top three individual finishers from each club will win an ultimate fan experience for themselves and three guests (four total) when play resumes with fans in-stadium.
