Congratulations to our July 18th Axe Society Members of the Match – Chris and Nicolette Becker!

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Chris and his daughter Nicolette won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Colorado Rapids match on July 18th, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Chris a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?

My first Timbers game was sometime around 2003 or 2004.  A Thirsty Thursday!  

And I still remember that pouring night in April 2011 and Perlaza scoring the first goal . . . and it was a victory!

What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?

Valeri's goal!   And the final whistle for 3 points!!

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  


What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers versus Montreal Impact?

Timbers win 3-2!

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? How did you enjoy your match experience?

I was impressed with the professionalism of everyone my daughter and I met on Friday night.  It was a great experience.    


Congratulations again, Chris and Nicolette, and thank you for your fantastic support!
