The history of this rivalry goes back to 1975 when the Sounders first played the Timbers in the north American Soccer League (NASL). They won the inaugural game in May played in Portland, but Portland not only beat them when they cane to Seattle but managed to knock them out of the playoffs. Thus the beginnings of the most intense and bitter rivalry in US soccer. When the NASL folded and the Timbers has to close shop the rivalry was on hold until 2001 when the Timbers started up again and were part of the United Soccer League. Now both teams play in the MSL, Major Scooer League and all indications is this league will be around for a long time.
In addition to the Seattle – Portland rivalry, the Cascadia Cup was created by the Supporters to bring in all three Pacific Northwest teams The Seattle Sounders, Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps. The cup goes to the team with the best record at the end of the season between games played between these three rivals. This has been going on since 2004.
