Soccer and Nightlife reunited again with Bud Poolball at Providence Park | The Backcut

The Timbers match-day experience and one great nightlife past time are reunited once again this season as Bud Poolball returns to Providence Park. Starting Sunday, May 11, you can put your soccer and billiards skills together for a chance to win tickets to the Timbers match vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Sept. 20 and a special, postgame player meet-and-greet.

What? You’ve never played Poolball. Check out this slick demo and you’ll be hooked.

Sunday is the first of six Timbers matches this season in which fans, 21 years of age or older, can participate in Bud Poolball (full list of games is below). The Poolball set-up is located on the concourse above section 95 at Providence Park near the Providence Sports Care Center and Portland Timbers Food Cart Alliance serving area. All participants at each game will be entered to win one of two nightly grand prize drawings, which include four (4) tickets on the Budweiser Balcony for the Sept. 20 match and passes to the postgame meet-and-greet.
