As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Jenny and her daughter Heidi won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. New York Red Bulls match, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!
We asked Jenny a few questions after the match.
What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?
"Though I had gone to games with my children years earlier, I will never forget the Timbers’ opening home match as a new MLS club. The roar of the fans was unending, as was the rain; everyone stayed on their feet for the entire 90 minutes and the atmosphere was electric. I had never experienced anything quite like it and the feeling has stayed with me ever since."
Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?
What is your prediction for the next MLS match – Timbers versus Colorado Rapids?
"Timbers with the win, by 2 goals. OK lads, I’m counting on you!"
What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any favorite pieces of Timbers memorabilia?
"I’m so proud to be a Timbers fan - win or lose, every Timbers game is a highlight on my calendar! I don’t have any game day superstitions, but I make sure I always wear something green. My favorite memorabilia is the new plaque I got as part of the Axe Society Member of the Match experience on Friday (thank you!)"
Congratulations Jenny and Heidi! And thank you for your continued support!
