“We are the Rose City! A History of Soccer in Portland” opens today at the Oregon Historical Society in Portland. Curated by HRA historians Libby Provost and Morgen Young, the exhibition explores the history of professional soccer in Portland and the cultural context of the game. Portland entered the professional soccer world in 1975, when the Timbers took to the field at Civic Stadium for the first time—and the city fell in love. 2020 marks the tenth anniversary of the Timbers joining Major League Soccer, and Portland’s love continues to grow. The two-time National Women’s Soccer League champion Portland Thorns FC played their first season in 2013. The exhibition is on display from July 24, 2020 through April 11, 2021. The Oregon Historical Society is open five days a week, Wednesday–Sunday. Admission is $10, with discounts for students, seniors, teachers, and youth. Admission is free every day for OHS members and Multnomah County residents.
