The 2019 NWSL Championship – Portland Thorns
Here are the players and management decision to host the 2019 NWSL Championship at their own home field the Portland Thorns. Read more in the programming article below or visit the NWSL website for more information about the game.
The NWSL Championship is scheduled to be played this year at the NWSL’s two best venues (in case you missed it) in New York City and Seattle. The New York City venue, as it is also called by everyone else, is the home of the New York Red Bulls of the Women’s United Soccer League. The Seattle venue, as it is also called by everyone else, is the home of the Seattle Reign of the WPS. Both venues are currently at capacity with a capacity of around 15,000. Both teams’ fan bases are huge and passionate. While the Red Bulls come from the soccer scene, the Reign came from the volleyball/baseball scene in North America (Seattle is where both were born, so I suspect most people get that reference).
Both teams play an intramural, team-oriented style of play as opposed to the high-temperature and intense, high-stakes league that most leagues are supposed to be. Both teams also play a style of play that most of the NWSL has become associated with, especially for men. As such, both teams played to win for their respective leagues (Seattle has won five of its five NWSL titles since the team debuted in 2001). As such, it was no surprise to see the home field decision being made by the new ownership group (which is one team, anyway). Despite the fact that it’s the home of both teams, Portland is also home to some of the most significant brands in the NWSL. A Portland Thorns game at the Portland Arena is considered the highlight of a NWSL season. Also, if that wasn’t enough, the Thorns are currently making the best TV deal in league history, with their home games broadcast live on Fox Sports West and Seattle’s broadcast will be carried live on CBSSports.
The NWSL Championship kicks off on November 5th with Seattle vs. That means the first game will be held in Seattle with only one game being played in Portland.
The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL): Why Portland is the Stadium of the NWSL Championship
The National Women’s Soccer League is a professional women’s game in the United States that began in the 2013-14 NWSL season and consists of twelve teams. The games are played at eight stadiums around the United States, two of which are sold out; at the Rose City Stadium in Rosemont, Iowa; in Phoenix, Arizona, and at Skydome in Tucson, Arizona. The NWSL is also a brand of women’s professional soccer that is sanctioned by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) in partnership with the International Women’s Football Association (IWFA).
The NWSL holds eight full-time conference and exhibition matches each season. The NWSL is scheduled to play matches every weekday (except in December where matches are split weekdays). The four conference games are played in the spring at the beginning of the NWSL season, and the four exhibition games are held in the fall.
The league plays on Saturdays at home matches; a new venue for the NWSL was announced on October 6. The Rose City Stadium, located in Rosemont, Iowa, is a 2,000-seat stadium built on the site of a former grain elevator that was the site of the Iowa State Agricultural Experiment Station. The Rose City Stadium will be used to host a Saturday afternoon game and two Wednesday night matches.

Soccer at the LHC ” by Jessica McDonald.
The 2016 Soccer at the LHC Festival is over, and we are back to work. Since 2016 is the last year of the festival in 2014, the 2017 Soccer at the LHC Festival, or SoccerFest, was established to help bring the festival back to life at a much needed year. The first SoccerFest happened in 2014 but was a rather short version of the festival, with no panels or events. To fill this gap, we set out to organize a panel at the LHC where we would discuss the past and future of the festival, and to give ourselves a reason to return next year.
While discussing the past and future of the festival, we realized there were many potential panels and events we could have. The idea of SoccerFest being a community for the future of the festival was not an easy idea to grasp, because we are an independent organization, and we don’t make revenue off of the festival. Also, we are also a non-profit organization, meaning that we cannot get funding for event production and marketing. On top of that, the board members, volunteers, and staff at the festival are not on our payroll, and they could not afford to pay us to participate. We also wanted to try to make the festival a sustainable event by keeping it within the budget and allowing enough time for all the panels and events to happen.
So, we approached the board of events to ask what was in our best interests to participate in future panels and events. The board of events gave us everything we asked for in a short period of time, and we were able to set up a very low cost panel for the board members to participate in the panel and learn all about the festival. The event also allowed us to get the necessary board members on board, and they were able to make it an effective and exciting event.
The event also allowed for us to get the board to actually participate at the festival; the board attended all the panels and events and actually had a chance to sit in on a board meeting to discuss all the panels and events.
Portland Thorns final in the NWSL
Portland Thorns FC 0:0 Seattle Reign FC on Sunday, Sept. 19, 2016 as the North American National Team kicks off their first International Women’s Soccer matches against the host United States National Team.
Portland Thorns FC and the Portland Thorns Soccer Club traveled to Seattle and played well throughout the United States Cup, but will now move on to face the #1 team in the USA.
The Thorns won the second United States Cup on Sunday with a hard fought 1-0 win over United Center on a hot, humid day in Seattle.
The North America National Team was able to get a good result against Europe in terms of possession as well as the attacking abilities of the team, as the Thorns scored three goals on Saturday, against United Center and Portland Timbers Academy, respectively.
Pivot Lindsey Horan has been the key to Thorns FC’s success as the team played well in the US Cup without its regular center back, defender and captain Samantha Mewis. After Mewis went down with an injury, and goalkeeper Hope Solo was injured in a tackle, the team had a lot of pressure on the back line, and the Thorns found it difficult to keep up on the backline late in the game.
Pivot Lindsey Horan has proven to be a solid and consistent backline partner for Horan, who has played all over the US Women’s National Team for the last two years. With the signing of the talented Thorns defender Megan Rapinoe, Horan will continue to be a solid partner for the midfielder, and will have a lot of responsibility if U. Soccer want anything new out of her. For more on your team, follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
Pivot Lindsey Horan will again have a very important role for Thorns FC in the United States Cup Final against the Seattle Reign FC. Thorns FC’s Megan Rapinoe will continue to be very important for the Thorns, who will have a very inexperienced team for the final. The Thorns have more games to play in the US National Team’s tour of Canada next summer.
