Calling All FriendsPDX Supporters and Soccer Fans!

The collab you didn't know you needed

Friends of the Children-Portland is collaborating with the Portland Thorns in celebration of FriendsPDX’s 30th anniversary. You can purchase discounted tickets to the Saturday, September 30th match versus San Diego Wave, and a portion of every ticket sold will directly benefit Friends of the Children – Portland.

Our goal is 300 tickets sold, and fans can choose between general admission or a special 200-level section. All tickets are under $25 each. The playing field will include members of this year’s Women’s World Cup soccer team, including Crystal Dunn and Sophia Smith from the Portland Thorns and Alex Morgan and Naomi Girma from the San Diego Wave. Friends of the Children-Portland sponsor partner, iQ credit union, has gifted $2000 for youth/mentor tickets, granting access to attend.

“Through our Stand Together platform, the Timbers and Thorns FC are excited to collaborate with Friends of the Children. I admire their efforts to support youth over the past 30 years and look forward to working with them in the future as they continue to mentor, empower, and help students reach their goals,” said Dr. Robin Beavers, Vice President of Community and Social Impact for Portland Thorns and Portland Timbers.

ADDITIONALLY! The Sports Bra will be hosting a gameday celebration from 5 - 9 PM on 9/30. A portion of proceeds from this event will benefit FriendsPDX.

Whether you want to stop by The Sports Bra before heading to Providence Park or watch the game from Portland's sports bar dedicated to women's sports, you'll be supporting FriendsPDX!
