Call for Messages of Support

10/11/2022 7:18 PM | Chris Spalding (Administrator)

On Monday, we posted an open letter to the Players of the Portland Thorns to express our support. We would like to offer the opportunity for you to write your own messages of support for the players that we will then bundle and deliver to them ahead of the semi-final match. These can be physical letters or postcards, small works of art and drawings, or they can be comments on this blog post or emails sent to Please ensure your message arrives by October 20th.

We ask that these be messages of support to the entire team, as we are unable to get them into specific player’s hands. The goal is to spread love and support to the players, and cheer them on with energy for the semifinal game. We strongly urge that you do not reach out to players directly.

Physical messages can be mailed to or dropped in the mailslot at Fanladen (1633 SW Alder St., Portland OR 97205). Please note on the envelope “attn: Letters to Thorns Players.”

(Please note that we will be opening any envelopes to ensure that everything is safe and appropriate.)

    Thank you to all the members of the Thorns past and present. For your heart, your spirit, your skill, your effort. It's constantly amazing to watch what you do.

      We believe in you. What you've accomplished this season on and off the pitch in the face of so many daunting challenges is inspiring. You and your fellow NWSL players fought hard to win historic reforms that will eventually help women athletes worldwide. You also emerged from all the pain and anger as examples for girls everywhere to never give up in the fight for equality. Now, LFG!
