Anchor-N-Rose 48s

AnchorNRoseWho We Are

Anchor-N-Rose 48s is the official ECS sub-group of Oregon anchored in the heart of Portscum. We are the collective of all Sounders visiting and expatriate following in the immortal footsteps of our group’s godfather, Roger Levesque; invading Portland’s turf and striking quickly. Our endeavors seek to champion the cause of SSFC in the Portland community and beyond while providing safe harbor for those of the Eternal Blue and Forever Green. We are Anchors piercing the rose. We are the Rebellion. We are Emerald City Supporters. 48 seconds!


On July 1st, 2009, it took under one minute for SSFC to score the first goal in the first match as an MLS side against Portland. This monumental strike set the stage for SSFC’s dominance in our MLS era against Portscum for all Sounders that followed.  In mid-2013, a small group of individual Sounder expat supporters banded together with the mission of finding our own island in the pond of scum. ANR 48s established formally at the beginning 2014 creating a reliable and consistent Sounders community integrated into the Portland area. We look to our Sounders brethren to help us write the next chapter of Sounder glory in PDX.

What We Do

We’re here to drink.  We’re here to sing. We’re here to support all Sounders, those visiting, as well as, those of us living in Oregon/ SW Washington to cheer on our boys taking the pitch. We hold pre-match parties for the PDX Away games and we host viewing parties at our home bar for all Sounder matches.  To warm up for the matches, we organize regular tifo parties where we make banners, flags and signs and get together as a group outside of regular Sounder events. Our intent is to build and maintain a community so that even in Oregon no Sounder will ever yacht alone.

How To Join

For Sounders Supporters in Portland, the greater Oregon area, or those traveling this way, join us for our viewing and pre-match parties. If you would like to become a part of our community, join the ECS and designate ‘ANR’ as your subgroup.  All events and additional details for the Anchor-N-Rose 48s can be found on our Facebook group page and Twitter feed.
