On matchday, stay hydrated

Rain or shine, hot or cold, Providence Park is always packed and ready to rumble on matchday. 

With all the yelling, chanting, flagwaving, pogo-ing and Tetris-ing to be had, it comes as no surprise that one may work up quite a thirst.

But did you know fans are allowed to bring their own empty water bottles into the stadium? And there's drinking fountains on both the west and east concourses as well as sinks in every restroom in the facility?

A quick look through other MLS stadiums as well as other major sporting facilities across the US puts Providence Park near the top of most accepting of outside water coming in. Moreover, Providence Park allows small amounts of food for babies and children.

It’s a big match out there. Be sure to stay hydrated!
