The Timbers will play earlier on Sunday due to the heat wave in Portland.

Major League Soccer announced that Sunday’s match against the LA Galaxy at Providence Park has been moved to 11 a.m.

The match was originally scheduled for 1 p.m.

With temperatures expected to be in the 90s Sunday, the new start time will allow for lower on-field and in-stadium temperatures earlier in the day, according to the Timbers.

The National Women’s Soccer League previously moved up the start time of the Portland Thorns’ match Saturday from 12:30 p.m. to 11 a.m.
