New Timbers Army Gate Procedures
In order to provide a fair and consistent entry procedure for Timbers Army fans entering through Gate 3, please read the following procedure. This has been done after consultation with the 107ist Board who will assist with additional volunteers to help with education and execution

  • The first 1,000 TA fans will receive a numbered wristband based on arrival order
  • Wristbands will be placed on each fan upon arrival (Limit 1 per person)
  • Fans should line up numerically 180 minutes before kick-off (1 p.m.)
  • Fans that do not return by 1 p.m. are not guaranteed priority entry
  • Gate 3 will open 120 minutes before kickoff (2 p.m.)
  • There will be an express and a bag check lane so your wristband number does not guarantee numerical entry due to security checks in the bag line.

Fans not arriving in time to recieve a wristband must go to the end of the Gate 3 line or utlize alternative JELD-WEN Field gates that open at 90 minutes before kick-off (2:30 p.m.) For more information, please read this 107ist FAQ.
