Portland Timbers and Thorns FC statement on MLS season suspension and Thorns preseason tournament

The Portland Timbers are in full support of Major League Soccer’s decision to postpone the 2020 season for 30 days. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our fans. Throughout the process, we have worked in tandem with local health authorities to help keep our fans, staff, players and community safe from the spread of COVID-19.

Additionally, in accordance with today’s mandate by the State of Oregon to cancel public gatherings of more than 250 people, we have canceled the Portland Thorns FC preseason tournament, scheduled to take place from March 29-April 4.

The status of future matches for both clubs will be determined at a later date in conjunction with Major League Soccer, the National Women’s Soccer League, public health authorities and government agencies.

Tickets purchased for postponed events are good for the new date of the match. With regard to canceled games, the Timbers and Thorns FC will reach out to fans with next steps.
