Watch: Portland Timbers greeted at airport after winning MLS Cup
Portland Timbers supporters greeted their team at the airport on Monday after the club won its first MLS Cup over the Columbus Crew on Sunday.
Portland had never won a league championship, dating back to the previous Timbers franchise of the NASL. Sunday’s 2–1 win came a little more than four years after the Timbers joined MLS.
The team arrived at Portland International Airport from Ohio on Monday afternoon, shortly before 4 p.m. local time. A large crowd gathered at the airport to greet the players as they brought the cup home.
