PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers have unveiled a slate of new additions to the Providence Park experience ahead of the 2024 season. Here’s a rundown of what fans can expect from the Timbers in 2024. 

Entering the club’s 14th MLS season, the Timbers are embarking upon a new era this year as they revive concerts at Providence Park. Set to host outdoor shows for the first time since 2005, the stadium will become the largest concert venue in Portland with a sellable capacity of approximately 30,000. As previously announced, Providence Park’s first musical act of 2024 will be Foo Fighters on Aug. 16, followed by Green Day on Sept. 25. For tickets and more information, click here.

In partnership with 10 Barrel Brewing Co. and Widmer Brothers Brewing, the Timbers have unveiled the “Pub Beer Patio” in the south end of Providence Park. With a 700-person capacity, the field-level patio will be the stadium’s first standing room only section and is accessible to general admission tickets. It will also include a 10 Barrel Airstream-based pub serving up a selection of their ready-to-drink cocktails and the “World’s Smallest Dive Bar”, complete with the fixings that make for a bar a true dive — a dart board, pool cues, and a selection of taps.

Park Provisions, the local team of Levy, will be introducing a host of new menu items for matchday at Providence Park. These include Chimichurri Tri-Tip Sandwiches, Hawaiian Loaded Nachos, Kalua Pork Bowls, Loaded BBQ Nachos, Kalbi Beef Rice Wraps and S’moresDonut Holes. Additionally, due to popular demand, local hospitality partners Killer Burger and Society Pie have added new concourse locations in addition to their previous establishments.

For the 2024 Timbers season, fans will be able to use their matchday ticket as proof of fare to ride TriMet buses and MAX trains to and from Providence Park to encourage environmentally conscious transportation. TriMet’s MAX Blue and Red lines, as well as four bus lines, stop in convenient locations near the stadium, and fans can ride starting three hours before a match through three hours after it ends with their tickets. 

The Timbers have partnered with Bold Reuse to provide reusable drinkware for alcoholic beverages in three premium spaces at Providence Park – The Club, Lexus Lounge, and Tanner Ridge. The collaboration is a pilot program which aims to reduce single-use wasteand promote a more sustainable matchday experience.

DaBella and the Timbers will introduce the “DaBella Community House”, a semi-permanent in-stadium structure located in the southeast corner of Providence Park. Up to four fans at every home match will receive complimentary seat upgrades to the DaBella “Best Seat in the House” section.

The team will debut their new 2024 Nature Unites community kit on March 2 against D.C. United at Providence Park. The jersey features new kit sponsor DaBella across the front, while also highlighting community partner and global nonprofit The Nature Conservancy (TNC) with their logo printed on the back of the neck. Throughout the season, the Timbers and TNC will work together to educate, activate and raise awareness around nature conservation and biodiversity loss, as well as encourage communities statewide to actively explore, experience and protect the outdoors.

To ease the fan experience at Providence Park, the club has acquired lockers to place outside of the stadium for fans to store personal items in. The lockers will be staffed by security and located next to Gates B, D, E, and F. 

Fans will also notice the addition of a lactation pod on the main concourse between Gate D and C. The pod will serve as a safe and private location for nursing mothers. 

The club has implemented a series of updated ADA improvements in the stadium. This includes new and upgraded assisted listening devices in the Guest Service Center, a link on the team website to direct audio feed, braille seating section signs throughout the main concourse, and a dedicated page on the guest guide for ADA services. 

Leading the team on the field, the club named Phil Neville as head coach ahead of the 2024 MLS season. Previously at the helm for Inter Miami CF and the England Women’s National team, Neville becomesthe fourth head coach in the club’s MLS era. The former English Premier League footballer holds a UEFA Pro License and joins Portland on a multiyear contract.
