About the Cascadia Cup

    Supporters of the Seattle Sounders have teamed up with fan-based organizations for the Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps to sponsor the "Cascadia Cup," to be awarded to the club who finishes with the best record in the season series between these three teams. The Cascadia Cup has been created to celebrate the strong rivalries between each of these three clubs.

   As a part of the USL Division One schedule the teams will host games against their local rivals to count in the Cascadia Cup standings. 

    The team earning the most points in all head-to-head competition against the other two teams using the current USL point system will receive the cup. The current point system awards three points for each win and one point for a draw.

    Corporations and fans have sponsored previous northwest cups, such as the "Rose Festival Cup" between the Sounders and Timbers. The name "Cascadia Cup" was chosen to reflect the geographical region that includes all three cities, Seattle, Portland and Vancouver, B.C.

Fans have donated money to pay for the two-foot tall silver Cascadia Cup that will rotate to each season's winner. The cup includes a plaque which will have each winning team's name engraved on it.

    "The Cascadia Cup brings back the feeling of what it was like when the teams played each other in the old (North American Soccer League) NASL days," said Kurt Schubothe, a Portland soccer fan.
