PORTLAND -- It's officially official. Jeld-Wen Field visibly turned into Providence Park Monday as crews hoisted a new sign into position at the downtown stadium and home of Portland's Major League Soccer team.

On Feb. 10, the Portland Timbers announced the stadium would change its name through a multi-year contract with Providence Health & Services.

The venue is also home to the Portland Thorns and will now host the first Special Olympics Oregon Fall Games since 2008.
