For the better part of two years, Providence Park, home of the Portland Timbers and Thorns, has been a construction zone. The historic 93-year-old stadium now boasts a wall with 4,000 more seats stacked over three decks and a menu of modern amenities, including two new LED video boards and an edge-to-edge roof comprised of 923,000 pounds of steel. Total capacity of Providence Park after the $85 million renovation is 25,218.
The newly created bottom level features a new premium club experience previously unavailable at Providence Park. The Timbers claim a wait list of 13,000 names, so all new seats were sold quickly.
The transformed stadium makes its debut on June 1 when the Timbers host LAFC.
