Timbers pick retro look for white third kit

The Portland Timbers unveiled a third kit today, going with a white retro jersey to join their current primary green and alternate red kits.

The Sounders haven’t decided when they will unveil the new uniforms.

However, they will become the fifth distinctly different jersey the club has worn since it first took Read more »
