Providence Park new stand increases capacity to 25,000

Portland Timbers open new stand at Providence Park

Wednesday 5th June 2019

Portland Timbers have officially opened their new stand at Providence Park, increasing the overall stadium capacity to just over 25,000.

A sell out crowd of 25,218 saw the Timbers open the new stand, with the home side losing 3-2 to LAFC. It was Portland's biggest attendance since 1976.

The Timbers' Twitter feed has an excellent time lapse video showing how the $100m renovations took place - adding 2 tiers into the existing single tier structure:

The MLS Western Conference side were forced to play their first 12 games away from home to allow the construction work to be completed. The team amassed an amazing 32,000 miles on the road before kicking a ball at their home stadium this season.
