Dairon Asprilla and Sophia Smith aren’t the only ones that can surprise a crowd--the 107IST is excited to announce our pop-up location at 1919 SW Morrison Street for the remainder of the 2023 Thorns and Timbers seasons!
For many it might come as a shock - to have such a close location to where we all enter into the stadium to cheer on the players. While the Civic plaza is a staple of many on match days, we've seen the loss of Uno Mas and most recently, Hot Lips Pizza. Through a serendipitous encounter, we were fortunate to be presented with the opportunity to rent a space for the season. Having a location so close to where many spend a significant portion of their match days, presents an abundance of opportunity -- to reintroduce ourselves to the broader PTFC community, reconnect with those we have not seen since the before times, and a place for 107IST members to gather.
As our occupancy of 1919 Morrison is a bit of an experiment, we'd like to take this chance to encourage folks who are in the neighborhood on match days to stop by--see RivetGear and No Pity Originals merch close up, talk to the folks who help our organization run, drop off Match Day Drive donations, and meet one another!
For those who are new to the game day experience, this new space serves as an initial welcome into the North End - for Rose City Riveters and Timbers Army supporters to learn about who we are, what we do, and how to get involved. We'll continue to utilize the Fanladen for meetings, Office Hours, membership questions (address changes, membership status, etc.) and the Warehouse for general operations and tifo creation, but this experimental space is an exciting opportunity and we'd love to welcome you by.
We are very excited for the opportunity to combine our storefronts of supporter made merch and bring our community even closer together. This experiment has brought a new level of collaboration to our organization and we are excited for what the possibilities are. And we hope that on Thorns and Timbers match days, you’ll stop by and see the growth and change as we work to make the space our own.
When will we be ready to open our doors? Starting today, before the Thorns take on Louisville FC, we’ll have the doors open and we’ll have a DJ, 107IST leadership present, and folks from the membership committee who will be able to answer questions. You can drop off your diapers for IRCO on the way to the match, too. Going forward, 100% of Riveters matchday activities will take place at the 1919 Morrison location. We're excited to welcome you to the new space, whether that's today or ahead of the Open Cup match on April 26th.
See you on SW Morrison and in the North End!
