PORTLAND -- The Portland Timbers announced Monday that Jeld-Wen Field will be renamed Providence Park, as part of a multi-year partnership with Providence Health & Services.
Providence Park will continue to host home games for the Timbers and Thorns, as well as collegiate and high school athletic events, youth soccer camps, concerts and more, said Portland Timbers spokesman Chris Metz.
As part of the new relationship, Providence Park will also be a home site for the first Special Olympics Oregon Fall Games since 2008, Metz said.
This partnership signifies a huge commitment to the community from the largest private employer in Oregon, which will keep Providence Park the name of our facility for years to come, said Timbers president Merritt Paulson. Additionally, I want to thank Jeld-Wen for their past and continued significant commitment to the Portland Timbers.
Jeld-Wen will still continue its involvement with the Timbers' community outreach programs.
We are looking forward to continuing our involvement as a founding partner and our association with the team and the sport, said Jeld-Wen senior vice president Bill Hueffner. We are extremely proud to have been one of the original supporters and sponsors of the team and the stadium at a monumental time in both of their histories.
