MLS Timbers Owner Talks About Possibly Adding Terracing Sections At Jeld-Wen Field

PARTY IN THE PARK: In Portland, Andrew Theen reported the City Council approved an ordinance yesterday to split the project of upgrading four soccer fields at Delta Park into "both a sole source and competitively bid deal." The city previously awarded a "sole-source contract for the entire project to Peregrine Sports LLC," which is affiliated with Paulson. However, the new deal will allow a "new locker room building" to be built under a sole-source contract, while a competitive bid process will be held "for laying down turf." The Timbers and the NWSL Portland Thorns are contributing "at least" $1.1M to the project (OREGONLIVE.com, 9/25).
