Cascadia Cup

History

Cascadia Cup Rivalry

The Cascadia Cup represents one of the most passionate derby rivalries in North America. Known for the region of North America that Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland represent, the Cascadia Cup was created by the supporters of Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Seattle Sounders FC, and Portland Timbers. Officially founded in 2004, the origins of the cup date back to when all three clubs were members of the United Soccer Leagues First Division. The combined fan-based organizations of the three clubs came together to produce the two-foot-tall silver Cascadia Cup, which is awarded annually to the team with the best head-to-head record in regular season matches between their Pacific Northwest rivals.
