The Portland Timbers were founded in 2009 and first played in the MLS in the 2011 season. In their inaugural season, the Timbers finished sixth in the Western Conference before slipping to eighth the following year. Massive improvements in 2013 led to the Timbers winning the conference title before reaching the semi-finals. The team couldn’t replicate that success in 2014 and fell to a disappointing sixth place, before rallying again in 2015 when they finished third and won their first MLS Cup.
Last season was another disappointing one for the Timbers as they languished in seventh place and missed out on the playoffs. Although they were immense at home, Portland failed to win a single away game during the regular season.
