The site of athletic events since 1893, the current
stadium was built by the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club in 1926.
It would be thirty years before a baseball team would call Multnomah
Stadium home. In the interim the urban facility would host college
football game, concerts and dog racing. The City of Portland took
over ownership of now Civic Stadium upgrading the facility during
the 1960s as professional and collegiate soccer, professional football
would also be played on the now artificial turf. As the primary
outdoor stadium in the city of Portland, it has undergone regular
upgrade to keep contemporary. It was a $38.5 million effort in 2001,
at which time the naming rights were sold to Portland General Electric
(PGE), a fully integrated electric utility. After the 2010 season,
the franchise was relocated to Tucson, Arizona while the facility
was converted from a multi-purpose stadium to a soccer-only venue.
