wherever you may go, we will always follow you.
we are the thorns supporters, and forever we'll be true.
“If you want to be a Rose City Riveter, you already are” sums up the ethos and structure of The Rose City Riveters, the independent supporters group for the Portland Thorns Football Club, the American professional women’s soccer team out of Portland, Oregon. Congregating in the North End of Providence Park at every home game, the Riveters stand, drum, yell, and chant for the entirety of the game. They unveil intricate tifos and thrust scarves in the air. This supporters group may be rooted in the tradition of European soccer fandom, but their passion for social justice and commitment to equity and inclusivity are wholly unique.
