Timbers to Play LA Galaxy - April 9th


As part of the 2002 A-League/MLS Exhibition series, the Timbers have announced a game against the LA Galaxy. Here is the press release in full:

The Timbers will play Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy in a special match to start the 2002 season, it was announced today. The match will take place at PGE Park on Tuesday, April 9 at 7:05 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 2 at 9 a.m. At that time, tickets will be made available at PGE Park in addition to all Portland-area Ticketmaster outlets, including select Fred Meyer and G.I. Joe’s locations. Also, tickets may be purchased by phoning Ticketmaster at (503) 224-4400 or on-line at www.ticketmaster.com.

Tickets for the MLS match will be priced the same as regular-season Timbers matches and will range from $4.75 - $14.25. The Galaxy match is also included in Timbers full- and partial-season ticket plans. These ticket plans are available by phoning (503) 553-5555.

"We're thrilled to be bringing one of the world's premier soccer teams to Portland," said Jim Taylor, Timbers vice president and general manager. "They're loaded with some of the most recognizable talent in soccer in the likes of Cobi Jones, Chris Albright, Maurico Cienfuegos, Ezra Hendrickson, Alexi Lalas, and Greg Vanney."


At 14-7-5, the Galaxy finished with the league’s third-best record and won the Western Division in 2001. The Galaxy emerged as 2001 MLS Cup finalists, marking the team’s third visit to the Cup. There, the Galaxy were narrowly defeated by the San Jose Earthquakes, 2-1, in sudden-death overtime. Additionally, the Galaxy were winners of the 2000 Football Confederation Champions Cup (Concacaf) and closed 2001 by winning the U. S Open Cup Championship against the New England Revolution.

“The Timbers have established themselves as a strong club and a source for some top-notch MLS players,” said Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid. “The match should prove to be an interesting and entertaining one.”


In its only other match against an MLS foe, Portland last season defeated the MLS-champion Earthquakes, 2-1, on a thrilling header in the 74th minute by Kevin Legg off a cross from Keith Costigan.
