ABOUT THE SUPPORTERS’ CUP:

Since 2010, the recreational amateur sporting clubs of the Emerald City Supporters (ECS) and the Timbers Army have faced off in annual games coinciding with a Sounders vs Timbers match on the same weekend. What began as a single match between the two groups in March of 2010 has grown into an annual event, rotating between host cities. The series expanded in 2012 to include men’s second team matches and again in 2014 to include a women’s match. Over 150 ECS members and Sounders fans attended the 2014 series in Portland, continuing a strong upward trend of increased attendance and participation.

ECS FC has dominated Timbers Army FC since 2010, going 5-2-1 in the entire series. In 2014, ECS FC continued the winning streak in dramatic fashion by winning two of three matches in penalty kicks and retaining the trophy. The results were triumphantly displayed at CenturyLink Field before the MLS match the next day to the delight of ECS members and Sounders fans.

Although the teams are composed solely of recreational soccer players, both supporters groups view these matches with utmost importance as they are playing not only for the pride of their home cities but also for the honor of their fellow supporters. Underlining the importance of this series, the winner of the men’s first team match will hoist the Champions’ Trophy introduced in 2013.

For the 2014 edition, a special episode of “In the 18” was produced by LEVYfilms, well-known for the “American Football” documentary featuring the Seattle Sounders. This short film featured action and highlights of the Supporters’ Cup, and can be seen here:

ABOUT LA COPITA:

La Copita is a youth invitational tournament hosted by La Barra Fuerza Verde which was founded on the principles of community-building, supporting our youth and youth teams, and celebrating the sport of soccer.

In 2012, La Barra Fuerza Verde hosted the inaugural La Copita youth tournament at the Golazo headquarters, then-located in Capitol Hill. The tournament had over 100 attendees and featured Fredy Montero as a special guest of the event.

In 2013, La Copita moved outdoors and was hosted at the Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club. With seven team entries, there were approximately 100 youth participants and 200 attendees for the event.

The 2014 edition of La Copita was again hosted at Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club, and hosted seven teams. Gonzalo Pineda of the Sounders was a special guest of the day and took the time to speak to the teams about his experiences as a professional and the importance of education. The tournament was documented by videographer and Barra member Jesus Velasquez, and the highlights of the day can be found here:

Unable to make it out to Starfire Stadium for the ECS FC vs TA FC Supporters' Cup series on Saturday, August 29th? Don't fret - you'll be able to follow all of the action of the Men's I trophy match via Sonarfeed live stream!

ECS FC is incredibly excited to announce that Erin Riley, Lee Rayl, Hugo Garcia, and the Sonarfeed crew will be live-streaming the final match of the day, set to kick off at 6 PM. Expect play-by-play, commentary, player announcements, and maybe even an interview!

Sonarfeed's broadcast will be the first time that an ECS FC vs TA FC Supporters' Cup match will be live-streamed, allowing those who are out of town to not just hear about the game highlights but to watch it and experience it themselves.

This represents the second time that ECS FC has been fortunate enough to have Sonarfeed live-stream an event. On Saturday, May 30th 2015, Sonarfeed broadcasted the ECS FC Pub League final from the Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club.
