The oldest team west of the Mississippi is Portland's team: Rose City SC. Known as the Roses, the fans in Portland are some of the most hardcore in the league. They have 3 Premier Championships, all before 1970. They also have won 3 US Open Cups, the last being in 1996.
The team's crest is fairly traditional containing their well-known "Portland Sash" which has been a feature of their uniforms and crest since the 1920s. Around the crest are thorny rose stems weaving in and around the logo. Their matches are played at historic Multnomah Stadium since 1926.
The uniforms both feature the "Portland Sash" made by hometown adidas. Red tops are the primary kit with white shorts and all white for the change kit. Another hometown company, Rouge Ales, is the kit sponsor.
