In just under two months from the announcement of their team (and the NWSL), Portland Thorns FC has hit the 3,500 season ticket mark.
“Your unofficial @ThornsFC Season Tix deposit tracker: 3,500+. that’s w/o players & pricing announced (hopefully both will elicit increase..),” Merritt Paulson posted on his Twitter account.
Paulson went on state that more than half of 3,500 number he quoted included current Portland Timbers season ticket holders who have expressed intent to buy.
NOTE: The Thorns FC will be playing on Jeld-Wen Field which has an estimated capacity of 20,438. The Portland Timbers in their second season in the MLS sold out every match of 2012.
