PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Hundreds of fans gathered at PDX Monday afternoon to welcome back the Portland Timbers one day after they won the MLS Cup in Columbus.
The Timbers Army had plenty to celebrate Sunday night after Portland won its first-ever MLS title.
Fans crowded outside Providence Park right after the Timbers’ 2-1 win over Columbus.
“We just won the league! We just won the league!” fans chanted as they marched around the stadium.
Mayor Charlie Hales tweeted congratulatory remarks to the team on Sunday night. He said the city was working on plans for some type of parade or event to celebrate the Timbers’ victory, although official details have not been released.
The Timbers arrival was delayed by nearly 2 hours, but that did not stop the hundreds of fans from meeting their team once they got back to Portland.
