Portland Timbers announce stadium name change to Providence Park

The home of the Portland Timbers has a new name.

The club announced Monday that their stadium will be called Providence Park, as part of a multi-year partnership with not-for-profit health care provider Providence Health & Services.

Providence takes over the naming rights of the stadium from JELD-WEN, who will continue to be a partner of the Timbers and MLS. Providence and the Timbers organization plan to work together in a variety of community initiatives in the coming years, including the revival of the Special Olympics Oregon Fall Games in 2014 and youth soccer camps and field-related projects. Providence will become a Founding Partner of the Portland Timbers Community Fund and a presenting partner of the Timbers’ Hispanic community outreach platform, “Somos Timbers.”

"I am thrilled to announce our new, expanded community partnership with Providence Health & Services,” Timbers president Merritt Paulson said in a statement. “This partnership signifies a huge commitment to the community from the largest private employer in Oregon, which will keep Providence Park the name of our facility for years to come.

"Additionally, I want to thank JELD-WEN for their past and continued significant commitment to the Portland Timbers."
