PORTLAND, Ore. -- The National Women's Soccer League championship game will be played in the Rose City this year.

The NWSL made the announcement Saturday afternoon. The game will be played at Providence Park on Sept. 22 at 1:30 p.m. The match will be broadcast on Lifetime.

Tickets for the championship game go on sale on Thursday, June 7, at 10 a.m. Fans will be able to purchase tickets at the Providence Park box office, online, or by calling 888-736-6849.

It's the second time the NWSL championship game will be played in Portland. Providence Park hosted the 2015 championship game between FC Kansas City and Seattle Reign FC.

The Thorns led the NWSL in attendance in each of the league's first five seasons, and averaged nearly 18,000 fans per game last season.

Portland won the championship last year and is one of two franchises in the league's history to win the title twice. Going into Saturday's match against Seattle, the Thorns were in third place in the NWSL standings, although the season is still in its early stages.
