UPDATE: MLS Code of Conduct

In the past few months, the Independent Supporters Council has been keeping an eye on events across the league in regards to the newly published Supporters Code of Conduct. We were especially concerned with the term “political” in the new Code of Conduct as it pertains to supporters being able to visually show support for initiatives that we hold important and that align with the MLS “Soccer for All” campaign.

After speaking with our members, Timbers Army, and our MLS league contacts, we would like to publicly state a decision that we believe will set precedence for supporters around the league. The Portland Timbers front office has confirmed to 107IST/Timbers Army that they will definitely allow anti-racist and anti-fascist words to be displayed at Providence Park.
