    Timbers increase field to 75x110
    Wider is better

    Jeld-Wen Field, which was laid out with dimensions of 70x110 yards in 2011 and 2012, used to be described as being as small as a postage stamp. "They play in a shoe box that one team is used to playing on and one team is not. By no means do I think that's going to determine the outcome, but it's something that the league should at least address." So said disgruntled then Chicago Fire defender Dan Gargan after the Portland Timbers won 2-1 against the Fire in May 2012.

    Portland Timbers announce stadium name change to Providence Park
    [​IMG]

    The home of the Portland Timbers has a new name.

    The club announced Monday that their stadium will be called Providence Park, as part of a multi-year partnership with not-for-profit health care provider Providence Health & Services.

    Providence takes over the naming rights of the stadium from JELD-WEN, who will continue to be a partner of the Timbers and MLS. Providence and the Timbers organization plan to work together in a variety of community initiatives in the coming years, including the revival of the Special Olympics Oregon Fall Games in 2014 and youth soccer camps and field-related projects. Providence will become a Founding Partner of the Portland Timbers Community Fund and a presenting partner of the Timbers’ Hispanic community outreach platform, “Somos Timbers.”

    "I am thrilled to announce our new, expanded community partnership with Providence Health & Services,” Timbers president Merritt Paulson said in a statement. “This partnership signifies a huge commitment to the community from the largest private employer in Oregon, which will keep Providence Park the name of our facility for years to come.

    "Additionally, I want to thank JELD-WEN for their past and continued significant commitment to the Portland Timbers."
