PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

After a difficult 2016 season, the Portland Timbers are ready to get back in the MLS Cup hunt with their home opener this Friday.

Fans have lined the corner of Southwest Morrison and 18th Avenue with tents, trying to be among the first to get their tickets for the big match.

Gary Buckler is a member of the Timber's Army, and he says he's been camping out for five years and it just keeps getting better.

"We know more people. I've met hundreds of new friends and acquaintances down here,” he said. “It's a blast."

Kickoff for the Timbers home opener against the Minnesota United is Friday at 6:30 p.m.
