In 2014 The Portland Timbers formed their own USL Pro team, with the aim of running a team that would aid in the development of youth players and feed the senior team with high-level talent. The second side started out at Merlo Field, the University of Portland's soccer stadium and played out their first two seasons there. They now play at Providence Park, sharing the 20,000 capacity stadium with the senior side. In their inaugural season, the second team finished in 8th place in the Western Conference, notching 11 wins and suffering 15 defeats. Despite the team missing out on the major honours, T2 star Kharlton Belmar picked up the award for USL Rookie of the Year and made the All-League Second Team.In 2016, T2 finished in 9th place in the Western Conference and went into the final game of the regular season with the chance to clinch the last spot in the USL playoffs. Despite defeating Arizona United in their final game T2 narrowly missed out as Orange County won their final game and ended the season with a better goal difference than T2.
