Fans rush to buy tickets to Timbers playoff game

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Timbers fans are still celebrating a big win. A 4-1 victory against Colorado on Sunday earned the Timbers a spot in the playoffs.

The Timbers missed out on the post season a year ago, but this year they're back as a third seed.

Fans rushed to buy playoff tickets the second they went on sale Monday morning.

The Timbers will be hosting Sporting Kansas City at Providence Park Thursday night.

Many fans were still buzzing from the win over Colorado when they showed up to buy tickets.

"They stepped it up the last couple matches. Very proud of that, so is Portland. It's going to be exciting," said Roberto Camaco.

Most of the tickets were sold online but several fans came in person to make sure they'd get a seat. Every fan who left with tickets in hand, left with a smile on their face.

Thursday's match is an elimination game. If the Timbers win, they'll face off against Vancouver in a two-game aggregate goal scoring series, which would start in Portland Sunday, then end in Vancouver next week.
