The game highlights the efforts the clubs make in the name of nature conservation and sustainability efforts.

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns will put on on the “Green Is Gold Charity Match” Wednesday in support of nature sustainability and conservation efforts.

“It’s obviously a really good cause that we are really excited about,” said Timbers defender Eric Miller when discussing the upcoming match. “I think for our fans to be able to just see us all play on the same field is really really cool, and I think for us to play with some world-class players on the Thorns is a great opportunity.”

The Timbers and Thorns will play a mixed scrimmage against one another, with two captains from each team on both sides, as well as two retired Timbers legends gracing the pitch at Providence Park once again.
