As the last 30-minute countdown to the Timber's home opener against Los Angeles Football Club, there was an electric atmosphere at Providence Park.

The expanded east side stand towers over the field and is taller than the rest of the stadium. Three new levels have been added over the old Key Bank Club level, bringing in new fans, or just relocating old ones. On a late spring evening the setting sun burnished the steel roof as people chatted and selfied on the concrete decks at either end, where there are views of the three mountains and all of downtown.
