20 Places to Watch the Timbers in the MLS Cup

Saturday, December 05, 2015


Portland Timbers fans, don't fret. Just because this Sunday's MLS Cup game kicks off at 1 PM in Columbus, Ohio, does not mean that you will be relegated to the couch, forced to watch the game without the roar of Timbers Army behind you.

Since the Timbers will battle for the championship on the road, we here at GoLocal figured that fans would need some good places to watch the game. We compiled 20 of the best sports bars in Portland where you can be sure to have a good time while you watch the Timbers fight for the cup.

While some die-hard fans will surely have their lucky venues or favorite game-time spots, we encourage you to get out and try a new place. Most importantly, make sure to make plenty of noise and support your hometown team.
