Portland Timbers 2 TicketsThe Portland Timbers 2, which is a reserve team for its owner, the Portland Timbers, serves as an important bridge between the academy level and the main team. Players on the roster have an opportunity to develop their talent and gain valuable experience as they strive for a spot in the MLS. The Portland Timbers announced the format of a second team in 2014. The new club was scheduled to join the United Soccer League, USL, the following season. As the second tier of American soccer, the USL ranks just behind the MLS in importance. In its first-ever season, the Portland Timbers 2 achieved an 11-15-2 record but did not make the playoffs. In 2018, the club reached the playoffs for the first time as the sixth seed but lost to the eventual national runner-up, Phoenix Rising, by a score of 3-2. Catch some of the top prospects and reserves of the Timbers organization at one of their Hillsboro Stadium home games. Get your Portland Timbers 2 tickets at StubHub.
