Portland Timbers release new secondary jersey for 2016

Okay, so Nat Borchers and Jack Jewsbury may have leaked the look of the Timbers' new secondary kit for 2016.

But today, Friday, January 29, you can finally score your own--it's on sale officially now.

The Timbers will sport their spiffy new secondary kits in their first regular season away game on March 13, when they visit the San Jose Earthquakes (7 p.m. ET, FS1 and MLS Live).
