The Seattle-Portland rivalry is a soccer rivalry between the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers soccer teams. The rivalry pre-dates the current teams in both cities, back to the North American Soccer League days, and has since grown into one of the largest and most bitter rivalries in American soccer. The rivalry has spanned across several leagues including the USL First Division, A-League, NASL, and Major League Soccer. According to many players, the Seattle-Portland rivalry is one of the only true derbies that is present in American soccer.Alan Hinton, a former English international and ex-Sounders coach, has compared the rivalry to those seen in the English Premier League. It is largely considered by a majority of fans across the American soccer community to be the most intense rivalry in the United States.
