Portland Timbers Debuts New Jersey Sponsor

The Portland Timbers debuted a new sponsor on their jerseys on Sunday after inking a multi-year deal with Tillamook.

The Oregon-based dairy cooperative was a longtime partner of the club and now replaces DaBella on the Timbers’ jerseys. The team dropped DaBella in February after allegations against that company’s CEO.

“We are absolutely thrilled to bring these two iconic Oregon brands together and celebrate our state in such a unique way through this expanded partnership,” Timbers CEO Heather Davis said in a statement. “Tillamook is a brand that truly represents the best of Oregon, and the Portland Timbers are incredibly proud to wear the Tillamook name on our jerseys.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Timbers said their Portland Plaid primary kit and Nature Unites community kit with Tillamook on the front would be available for sale here.

Tillamook plans to participate in the Timbers Fields for All program, which helps children in underserved communities by building soccer fields and indoor soccer fields.

Founded in 1909, Tillamook is now a Certified B Corporation with manufacturing facilities in Tillamook and Boardman. The Tillamook Creamery is the Oregon Coast’s largest tourist attraction, with more than a million visitors each year.
