Michael Orr takes a look back at the first season of the Timbers team in 1975, a season so successful that it landed the Timbers in the NASL Soccer Bowl and earned Portland the nickname “Soccer City USA.” Learn more about the team that inspired huge crowds and featured stars like Peter Withe and Willie Anderson.

He hosts the twice-weekly podcast “Soccer Made in Portland” and has contributed articles for The Blizzard Magazine and XI Quarterly.
