Out of an abundance of caution, the Timbers Army Tifo Committee is moving the home opener tifo to March 11 for the Portland Timbers home match against St. Louis City SC.
As announced by Major League Soccer, the Timbers home opener match, originally scheduled against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday, February 25, was rescheduled for Monday, February 27.
Our all-volunteer rigging and tifo teams are often able to pivot with short notice, but based on the current weather predictions and availability for Monday, February 27, we are pushing out the deployment of the tifo that was intended to displayed at the home opener to what is scheduled to be the second home match of the season.
We haven’t had a “normal” year in a while, so let’s keep it weird and do things a little differently this year, too.
The weekly 107IST email to members asked people to bring streamers in different shades of blue and white to throw during the unveiling of the tifo. We kindly ask that you bring those to the match against St. Louis on March 11.
We are still collecting socks for our Match Day Drive on Monday! Donate some socks, and be entered to win a Tetris scarf! Read more here!
