Tickets are now on sale for our second trip to Seattle, on August 26. We will be stepping up our game to have 3 buses to support the Thorns: a Cider bus, Beer bus, and for the first time, an OVERNIGHT bus!
Since the Timbers are playing the Sounders at Century Link on Sunday, August 27th, this overnight bus will stay in Seattle Saturday night, journey to the match on Sunday, then back home with the rest of the Timbers Army buses Sunday night.
Now we just need you, your voice, and your passion for the Thorns (and Timbers)!
The Riveters have purchased Lower Grandstand tickets, just like last time. This means no hiking up to the furthest corner of the stadium. Normally, these tickets are $25 each, but with the group discount, they are $15 each. Here are the details for our group ticket order opportunities:
- Thorns Match Ticket & Cider/Beer Bus combo – $50
- Thorns + Timbers Ticket & Overnight Bus combo – $70
- Thorns Match Ticket only – $15 – LOWER GRANDSTAND. You will need to pick up your ticket in Seattle when the bus gets there or the tickets will be left at Will Call.
You will select your bus at the time you purchase your tickets on the EventBrite site.

All participants in our group agree to the 107ist Away Travel Code of Conduct. Please review it here:
Rules for the buses:
NO GLASS ALLOWED ON THE BUS. While we are allowed to bring food and drink (adult beverages are way okay), you are not allowed to have glass containers. Please plan accordingly.
NO #2 ON THE BUS! The bathroom on the bus has a very small storage tank! We will be stopping at a rest stop about halfway through the drive (or about 90 minutes in).
General trip info:
There are no age restrictions in the Riveters or on our buses. If you’re a party of 1, coming with friends, or want to make it a trip for the whole family, please join us.
Memorial Stadium allows away supporters to have flags & two-sticks so long as it does not obstruct others’ view. We are awaiting a final decision on an exception to their noisemaker policy from the Reign front office – until we hear back, please plan on leaving noisemakers at home.
There is a Bag Policy that will be enforced at Memorial Stadium this year. All bag styles and sizes are allowed but are subject to inspection upon entry. Fans will be asked to return prohibited item(s) to their vehicles or throw them away before they are allowed entry into the stadium.
At the last match, we were allowed to bring in sealed plastic water bottles. This is still an option, along with empty plastic water bottles that can be filled inside.
We will continue our policy of a capo-only front row in Memorial Stadium.
Bring food and drink for the bus. Keep glass at home. Clean up after yourself. Keep an eye on each other. We all want to have fun. Be sure to bring some ca$h to tip our great bus drivers!
Your Riveters buses and captains are:
Cider Bus (2 Towns) – Nash Drake
Beer Bus (Lompoc) – Kelsey Miglioretto

Load at 200 N Winning Way (Jack Ramsay Way), near the MODA Center (Rose Quarter). This is easily accessible by public transportation and has access for the large amount of buses. We will return to the same location. There is street parking in the area but be aware that much of it is metered in the immediate vicinity. There are also pay lots available in the area. http://findit.oregoncc.org/Parking%20Maps/Area%20Parking%20Map/AreaParking.pdf
