History

Portland Timbers joined the MLS as an expansion team for the 2011 season. This is the fourth club to hold the Timbers name, stretching back to 1975. The first manager of the club in the MLS era was John Spencer, who at the time was an assistant coach for the Colorado Rapids. Spencer would be in control of the team for just over one full season after finishing twelfth in the League. A poor start to the next season including a 0-3 to Real Salt Lake which would be the ultimate cause for managerial change. Gavin Wilkinson was brought in as interim to replace the recently fired Spencer and would remain with the club for three months. After which Caleb Porter was appointed as the new permanent manager, a post he would hold for just short of five years. Aside from the inaugural season, the Timbers have had attendance of at least 20,000 (season average). Under Caleb Porter, the team would win their division twice and win the MLS Cup once. Caleb Porter resigned in late 2017 and was replaced by Giovanni Savaresi a month later. Savaresi is the current manager of the club and in his first campaign the club finished the season as runners up in the MLS Cup. The club have sold out all available tickets since their entry into the league in 2011 (at least until October 2018).
