MLS announces Twitter Fan Pic giveaway winner

On Saturday, June 11, MLS launched our first Twitter Giveaway. By tweeting the link of a fan photo @MLS with the #MLS hashtag, 50 participants were entered into a random drawing to win an Official Match Ball.

Congratulations to Chris Barron (@tbc5150), whose tweet "@MLS Enjoyed the #Timbers game! #MLS" was the lucky winner. The photo is featured above, and includes both Chris and his daughter Taylor, 11, at the Timbers vs. Rapids game on Saturday night at JELD-WEN field in Portland, Oregon.

We'd like to share a special thanks to all the fans who participated, and we've posted a few of our favorites below.

To view all of the entries (there are some great ones) log into Twitter and search #MLS (or just click here). In the right-hand column you'll see a button to "Display Media," where you can select "Top Images" or "Top Videos." This is a new feature from Twitter that you can read all about on the Twitter blog
