Historical Moments:

2011: On March 19, the reincarnated Portland Timbers made their MLS debut following three different Timbers clubs in the lower American Soccer Pyramid levels. The first game was a 3-1 loss to the Colorado Rapids. Their home debut came four weeks later at renovated Jen-Weld field, the converted baseball stadium that hosted Women's World Cup matches in 1999 and 2003. In this game, the Timbers got the better of the Chicago Fire, 4-2 helped by two goals from Jorge Perlaza. Though the club would proceed to win six of their first ten matches, they would endure rough stretches and injuries to key players that kept them four points out of a playoff spot with an 11-14-9 record.

2012: The Timbers would have difficulty living up to expectations, winning only three times in their first twelve games and couldn't keep up the pace in the West. A coaching change in the summer didn't help the club as they finished 8-16-10 and in eighth place in the West.

2013
:
After coming up short of the playoffs their first two years, the Timbers rode a wave of momentum to the top spot of the Western Conference, starting the season on an 8-2-9 run to help secure their first playoff berth with a solid 14-5-15 mark. In their first playoff series, the Timbers coasted past the Seattle Sounders 5-3 on aggregate, but fell flat in the conference final to Real Salt Lake, losing 5-2 on aggregate.
