The Timbers Army is at it again.
As you would expect anytime the Seattle Sounders come to town, the fans in Portland conjured up an epic pre-match tifo to give their rivals a warm welcome to Providence Park for Sunday’s Cascadia Cup match.
This time, they really out-did themselves with a Wizard of Oz-themed tifo. A yellow brick road connected Dorothy holding a can of gasoline on one end, and a burning city of Seattle (appropriately known as the “Emerald City”) on the other. The message “There’s no place like home” hung right above it.
The tifo was absolutely brilliant. Their team? Well, the Sounders left Portland with a convincing 4-2 win over their bitter northwest rivals.
Check the tifo out in action, below:
