City of Portland welcomes the Thorns - April 10, 2013


This morning, Nick was pleased to read a Proclamation in honor of Portland Thorns FC's inaugural season.


In late 2012, the National Women's Soccer League was established. Portlanders were thrilled to learn that the Rose City would welcome its own women's team - the Portland Thorns.  The Thorns team is led by a number of world-class and Olympian athletes.


We were honored to welcome Thorns forwards Christine Sinclair and Danielle Foxhoven - both graduates of the University of Portland Pilots - along with Head Coach Cindy Parlow Cone and Chief Operating Officer Mike Golub.
