The wheels are starting to turn for the 2015 NWSL season and we’re gearing up with new, well, gear.


It’s red! It’s black! It’s got Polka dots! AND IT’S REVERSIBLE! These festive beanies are up for presale (we expect them to be deliverable in late-January – just in time for Valentine’s Day!). Why not order now and avoid the rush?

As an added incentive, you can get free shipping for these babies (and on all orders over $30) by entering the code GIRLSINRED. Make sure you click the “shipping rate” button after entering the code to confirm the free shipping.

So, head on over to and order a bajillion of them. Preseason is always so cold.

Our fancy new German Ballon d’Or winning keeper Nadine Angerer just finished a Twitter Q&A by asking who would be there Saturday for the Thorns home opener.

Simple answer: we will be.

There’s been a lot of discussion over the last week about support of women’s soccer and what it should look like and whether the league’s marketing efforts are well-placed. Every one of us has an opinion. None of that matters when Saturday dawns.

We stand. We sing. We support. We raise flags and do whatever is within our power to spur our team toward victory. We are at the stadium long before the gates open and we linger after the match until security asks us to leave. We are all ages, all races, all creeds, aligned perfectly for a few hours each week when our team takes the field. This is what support looks like in Portland.

Do you want to be a part of it? As we did last season, the Riveters will be focusing on concentrating support in sections 106-108 of the North End at Providence Park. While the entirety of general admission is set up as standing-singing sections, this is where the loudest of us will be. If you want to sit and watch, you are welcome to do so from elsewhere in the stadium. Flags and banners are welcome here, though if your banner is super huge, you should probably consider hanging it from the front of one of the North End sections. Zip-ties are your friends.

If you’re still looking for a ticket to the match Saturday, please check the Timbers Ticket Exchange page on Facebook. Our friends there have set up event pages for each Thorns match and monitor the page to make sure folks are playing by the rules: face value only. No scalpers.

If you’ve got an extra ticket you can’t use and would like to donate it to the Riveters tifo fund, please email it in pdf form to We will sell these (again: face value) at Fanladen before the match. Fanladen is the home of the 107ist located at 1633 SW Alder, just a few blocks from the stadium.

This year, Fanladen will also be our base for merch sales. If you need a scarf, a patch, a t-shirt or a bandana, you’ll find them here until about 45 minutes before game time and then for a VERY BRIEF time post-match. We’ll open the doors at about 4 p.m. for merch, ticket exchange, and 107ist sign-ups and member services.

Above all else, have fun. Portland is home to a league champion team. We’ve earned this. Let’s enjoy it.


The Riveters will be hosting a photo-opp with the championship trophy and Thorns midfielder Allie Long on Tuesday, April 29. We’ll be set up at Fanladen, and you will need to register in advance. This isn’t a meet-and-greet. There will be limited time to get people through the line for photos so please register ahead of time and be a few minutes early for your time. You can register here.

Scarves up, everyone. It’s time.

Representatives from the Rose City Riveters dropped off a check for $1925.00 to represent the money raised from the sales of our Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon benefit scarf today. We met with FCCO’s Development Coordinator Devon Jahn and Executive Director Karen Kraus at the clinic, while veterinarians and volunteers vaccinated, spayed, and neutered dozens of feral cats. We got a tour of the facility and got to see first-hand the great work they do there. They fixed almost 7300 cats last year, and will do even more this year. That makes a huge difference in the feral cat population!

This sign greeted us on the clinic wall today. 🙂

Although we sold almost all of the scarves before the holidays, we do have a few singles left. Members of the Riveters have generously fronted the donation money for them, so you can buy knowing the donation is included in the amount we gave today. You can get yours at for $20 shipped, or from us in person at events for $15. Right now we’re also running a combo special on the site that gets you either of our scarves along with an RCR PDX Queens of Cascadia unisex T-shirt for only $20 plus shipping.

You can get your scarf in person for $15 if you contact holly at rosecityriveters dot org and make arrangements. That is also the address to use to arrange to pick up your prepaid set if you haven’t already.

If you want your scarf mailed, the price is $20 each to cover postage, handling, and PayPal fees. Just click the button below if you would like to order one online.

If you want to buy other Riveters stuff at the same time, go to the Riveters store and fill up your cart!

***UPDATE: Scarves are due to arrive in Portland on October 1! ***

The Rose City Riveters have teamed up with the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon and we’re selling a scarf to benefit them. Every cent of profit will go to FCCO.

FCCO is a trap-neuter-return (TNR) program for feral and stray cats living in Oregon. They have spayed/neutered and vaccinated over 62,000 feral cats, including the feral colony that lives in Jeld-Wen Field. They do all these things for low cost or free. Our donation will help FCCO keep our feral cat population healthy and their numbers under control.

We are taking preorders now, in sets of five for $75. Single scarves will be available for $15 each once the boxes of scarves arrive, if all the sets haven’t been sold already. There is an active scarf-trading Facebook group if you have extra scarves in your set and want to sell them or trade for other scarves. Or just get a group of friends together and go in on a set. We expect the scarves to come in by October, in plenty of time for your holiday gift-giving needs. We will have an event once they come in, and will make ourselves as available as possible until all the sets have gotten to their rightful owners.

To order a set, use PayPal to send $75.00 to using the “Transfer” option to send money to family or friends, not the “Buy” option.  There are no fees that way. If you use the “pay for goods or services” option or pay with a credit card, you will need to send $77.54 to cover the fees.

I will update this post as sets are paid for and will answer any questions you may have.
