GAME PREVIEW: Timbers Host AC St Louis For First Time

Portland Timbers
(1-0-0)

AC St Louis

The Portland Timbers will play AC St Louis for the first time in history this Thursday evening at PGE Park. With a season opening victory and a PGE sellout already under their belt, the team will now set its sights on the inexperienced, first-year St. Louis franchise.

Although only an expansion team, AC St Louis is in a city with a relatively rich soccer history. With organized leagues existing as far back as 1891, St. Louis soccer fans have supported all types of amateur teams, collegiate level teams, indoor teams, and even a team from the original NASL. So, perhaps it isn’t too surprising that even though only in its inaugural season, AC St Louis has found a small, but supportive fan base already burgeoning at its home games. The team plays in modest Anheuser-Busch Stadium, which sits just over 6,000 fans, and the team nearly sold out the place for its home opener this past Saturday. St. Louis soccer fans have shown a great collective spirit and passion for soccer thus far – singing songs, waving flags, and lighting off smoke bombs in the stands. The city has also expressed desires to join the MLS at some point, so don’t be surprised to see big things from this franchise in the near future.
