Reign vs Thorns - Livestream and Game Thread

New, 137 comments

The Seattle Reign's second in a row on the road to start the season takes them to a little town named Portland, Oregon where they're a bit proud of their soccer support.

Seattle's second match is the kickoff the anticipated NWSL Cascadia rivalry. Personally, I'll wait until something actually happens to make it a rivalry. Geography isn't enough by itself. But it's a big match regardless. Portland has one of the most talented rosters in the league, particularly at forward, and is expected to have the biggest home field advantage in the league at Jeld-Wen Field. So rivalry or no, a result in Portland today would be a huge result for a Reign team that's still trying to get healthy.

I have a little more faith in Portland's broadcasting infrastructure than Chicago's, so I expect this will be the second NWSL match to actually broadcast successfully on YouTube. Assuming that's the case, here's the stream.
