Overview
Providence Park is home to the Portland Timbers soccer team and lives right in the heart of Portland’s downtown. With the recent expansion, more fans will be able to fit in the stadium for each game.

The Portland Timbers planned to spend $50M to add 4,000 seats at Providence Park by 2020. The design added four new tiers of seating to the stadium’s east side with a cantilevered roof jutting out over most of the new seats. This expands the stadium’s capacity from 21,144 to 25,218. The work also created an arcade-like adjacent to the stadium along Southwest 18th Avenue. RLB served as the cost management team for the project. All involved in this expansion will have a significant effect on the Portland sports community, as the Timbers have sold out every game in their MLS history. They also had a season ticket waiting list of 13,000 names. 80% of the new seats have been dedicated to season ticket holders, and 20% of them will be open as single-game seats. The expansion will ensure that more fans can cheer on their beloved Timbers at every game.
