And the full schedule has been revealed. After getting the regular season schedule last month, followed by the Timbers U-23 schedule last week all we were waiting on was the reserve league schedule to finally know exactly how this year will play out.
It looks like there will be 10 reserve league games this year with 5 of them being home and 5 away. Home being at Jeld-Wen Field so no need to worry about the location as was the case with the U-23 team.
This year's opponents are an entirely west coast affair with the Timbers facing off against Chivas USA, LA Galaxy, San Jose Earthquakes, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. Should make for some relatively easy and light traveling, especially since there are no time zone changes.
Here is the exact schedule:
2012 Timbers Reserve League Schedule (subject to change)
Tuesday, March 27 @San Jose Earthquakes Reserves Nutrilite Training Facility 11 a.m.
Tuesday, April 10 @Seattle Sounders FC Reserves Starfire Sports Complex 7 p.m.
Sunday, April 22 @Vancouver Whitecaps FC Reserves Swangard Stadium 3 p.m.
Sunday, May 27 Vancouver Whitecaps FC Reserves JELD-WEN Field 2 p.m.
Saturday, June 2 LA Galaxy Reserves JELD-WEN Field 7 p.m.
Monday, June 18 @Chivas USA Reserves
Sunday, July 29 Chivas USA Reserves
Sunday, Aug. 26 San Jose Earthquake Reserves JELD-WEN Field 6 p.m.
Monday, Sept. 10 @LA Galaxy Reserves
Sunday, Sept. 16 Seattle Sounders FC Reserves JELD-WEN Field 2 p.m.
Anybody planning on attending any of the games this year? It's a cheap way to see the Timbers in action and, if it's anything like last year, there will be more than a few chances to see some of the first squad taking part.
