Soccer fans will have an opportunity to watch the Portland Timbers 2 play against the Swope Park Rangers of Kansas City on Saturday, June 4th at Rocky Mountain High School in Meridian.

“With Idaho being an important part of the Timbers Homegrown territory, playing this T2 game in Boise is a great opportunity for the club to further develop and broaden its partnerships in the state and to showcase the Timbers brand to an ever-increasing, regional fan base,“ said Gavin Wilkinson, general manager of the Portland Timbers and T2.

Gates will open up for the match at 5:30 p.m. and parking will be free.

General admission tickets will be $20 and will go on sale Friday, April 1st at 10 a.m. here.

A portion of the sales will go to the Idaho Youth Soccer Association’s member clubs.

Subject to availability, tickets will also be available for purchase at the stadium ticket gate the night of the match.

The soccer match is in part due to the partnership of the Idaho Youth Soccer League and the Timbers.

“This relatively new partnership between the Timbers and the Idaho Youth Soccer Association is one that is already making a big impact on the development of youth soccer in Idaho,” said Bill Taylor, president of the Idaho Youth Soccer Association. “The leadership and joint coaching efforts of the Timbers have enhanced our Olympic Development Program and stimulated involvement of the game at all levels here in the state. We are especially excited to continue this relationship as we partner in bringing T2 to Boise and see this as a way of further putting the stamp of the Timbers on our growing soccer state.”
