By Community | October 14, 2014

Major League Soccer (MLS) side Portland Timbers announced Monday they have renewed their shirt sponsorship with Alaska Airlines.

As part of the multiyear partnership, the Northwest airline’s wordmark will continue to be prominently featured on Timbers game kits and club apparel, and they will continue to serve as the team’s official airline. A Founding Partner of the Timbers, the Alaska Airlines has been the club’s jersey partner since its inaugural 2011 MLS season.

“We are thrilled to be renewing our Alaska Airlines partnership,” president of business operations Mike Golub said in a statement. “The relationship is the epitome of the proverbial ‘win-win’ and we look forward to seeing the Alaska name on our kits in 2015 and beyond.”

Alaska Airlines will also continue to support the Portland Timbers Community Fund, partnering with the team on several youth-based fitness and educational initiatives. Additionally, Alaska Airlines will donate 25 game-day tickets for home games to underprivileged Portland-area youth as part of the Timbers’ “Tickets for Kids” program.
