The Portland Timbers and the Portland Thorns will be able to welcome a limited number of fans back to home soccer games starting next month. The Oregon Health Authority says outdoor sporting events can be held at 25% capacity. That’s approximately 6,500 people at Providence Park. The Thorns will host the first professional sporting event in Oregon with fans since the coronavirus shutdown when they host Kansas City on April 9 in the National Women’s Soccer League's preseason Challenge Cup Tournament.
