PORTLAND, Ore.— The Portland Timbers today announced that the team has surpassed 12,000 season tickets sold for its inaugural Major League Soccer season in 2011. Due to demand, the team has opened up an additional 500 seats for season ticket sales and has established a hard cap of 12,500 for the team’s first MLS season. A waiting list will be established once the 12,500 figure is met.

Additionally, the team announced that half-season plans are nearing sold-out status.
