Portland Timbers fans unveil massive ‘Timbers Wonderland’ tifo

Monday June 29th, 2015

The Portland Timbers-Seattle Sounders rivalry is the fiercest in MLS and Portland fans prepared for Sunday's edition of the derby by unveiling an impressive tifo. 

A large screen depicting a mountain landscape was hoisted behind the supporters' section and the fans in front held up pine trees. The final piece was a screen in front that read “Walking in a Timbers Wonderland.”

Portland went on to dominate the match, winning 4–1 behind goals from Darlington Nagbe, Rodney Wallace and two from Fanendo Adi.

The game was the first meeting between the two teams since their heated U.S. Open Cup match that saw three Sounders get sent off, Clint Dempsey rip a referee's notebook and the Timbers eliminate the defending champions.

When you play a rival like Seattle Sounders FC, you have to bring the right tifo. The Timbers Army certainly knows that, eh?
