Although their 2009 establishment makes the Portland Timbers one of the newest teams in the MLS, the legacy of the Timbers name has had a very long and detailed history. The Timbers name first originated in the old North American Soccer League in 1975, through the years four different Portland teams have shared this name as well. The current Portland Timbers soccer club in the MLS was brought in to replace the USL First Division team, who also shared the same name. When the new MLS Timbers team was formed they became the 18th club in the Major League Soccer.
