Four years ago, nearly 10,000 people jammed into Pioneer Square for the 2006 World Cup final. This Sunday, several thousand people are expected to gather at Portland’s Pioneer Square to witness the 2010 World Cup final between Spain and The Netherlands, broadcast live from South Africa on a giant 17′ x 23′ LED screen.
“We’re thrilled to give Oregonians the chance to come together and celebrate the culmination of what has been a remarkable and absolutely thrilling World Cup,” said Drew Mahalic, CEO of the Oregon Sports Authority. “Everyone is invited to join local soccer fans to experience the world’s most watched sporting event in the heart of downtown Portland.”
In addition to the World Cup final, the day’s festivities, beginning at 11 a.m. will include a beer garden courtesy of Widmer, as well as Adidas merchandise for sale featuring the Portland Timbers new MLS logo.
