NWSL Finals Roundup
There’s a party in Portland- no one’s sleeping for a few nights!
There’s a little something for everyone, both to welcome our out-of-town guests to the Rose City, and also share the big occasion with local women’s soccer supporters.
In the weekdays preceding the finals, we’ll have a special service project in conjunction with the folks at Stand Together: NWSL Championship Legacy Community Project. Stand Together is an extension of the Thorns FC front office, with the mission to harness the power of sport to improve the lives of children and families through targeted programs, partnerships, and philanthropic giving. Working in tandem with them, we will complete a renovation on the game room at the Boys and Girls Club in Hillsboro. Sign up for a shift by clicking here.
Thursday night, head over to The Civic Taproom for WoSo trivia with Jen Cooper (AKA @KeeperNotes on Twitter)! $1 off your first drink with @107ist card! Civic is a hop skip from Providence Park, and will allow you to bring in food from neighboring eateries (Una Mas, Boise Fry Co., & Hot Lips Pizza all in the same building).
Friday night– NWSL finals eve- head on down to Kelly’s Olympian at 426 SW Washington St, Portland to catch Pie Fight, Bitch’n, and baby ketten karaoke. Five bucks at the door, and proceeds will support Street Soccer USA. There will also be some incredible raffle prizes for folks to take a crack at- you won’t want to miss it! Doors at 9:00 p.m.
Morning of the final, join us for some pick-up soccer. We will meet at Wallace Park, 2550 NW Raleigh Street, Portland from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome, no special gear required! Just show up- it’ll be fun and friendly.
Also on the day of the final, Goal Five, a women’s soccer apparel brand, will be hosting a pop-up shop at The Far Post from 9:00 to 6:00. There will be a food truck, athlete appearances, and more. Best of all, 5% of sales goes to Riveters/Gisele Currier scholarship fund!
As always, Fanladen will be open pre-match as well.
