Portland Sports is proud to showcase local athletes and share sports stories from around the Rose City: from grass roots leagues to the Moda Center and Providence Park. With a focus on the guys and ladies making noise as weekend warriors, to the rich history of sports rooted in Portland, to featured content on the Blazers, Timbers, Hops, and college coverage, Portland Sports stays on the sports scene.
We are dedicated to promoting local tournaments, leagues, contests and other sports-related events happening around Portland. We’re always looking to connect your event with our local sports community.
Make sure to connect with us on social media channels or contact us directly to pitch or suggest story ideas for us to get involved with at Portland Sports.
