PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - When Timbers and Thorns fans enter the newly revamped Providence Park, there is one thing that won’t change: The price for food and drinks.

The teams announced Wednesday the concession prices are being frozen across the board from last season for the 2019 season.

Additionally, the Timbers and Thorns are introducing “Park Pricing” games. For matches on Wednesday and Thursday nights, there will be $2 hot dogs, $2 nachos and $5 Coors Light 16-ounce cans.

That will include home games for the Timbers on July 18, Aug. 14, Sept. 18 and Sept. 25. The reduced pricing will also be available for Thorns matches on July 24 and Sept. 11.

The Timbers and Thorns have been on extensive road trips to start their seasons due to the construction at Providence Park.

The $85 million project will add more than 4,000 new seats on the eastside of the stadium, raising the capacity to more than 25,000 people.

The project also includes other extensive enhancements, including a state-of-the-art video board and scoreboard that is two times larger than the previous board, new LED field lighting, new locker rooms, a new team store, new concession stands and concourse amenities on the westside of the stadium and additional gates.

Providence Park was originally built in 1926.

The Timbers first home game is June 1. The Thorns will make their 2019 home debut on June 2.

OH. that's too bad. Big stadiums around the country have made their items so cheap that they can barely keep up with demand! OF course our area can't do that! $2 hotdogs and $3 beer sounds good!
