Week 26 for the MLS Tifo of the Week goes to the Emerald City Supporters for their amazing tifo during the Cascadia Cup match. I particularly liked how they had some cards on the add to black out the edges of the display. Emerald City Supporters has a great writeup on their site about how the display came to be, definitely worth a read.
Not that the Timbers Army didn’t have something for us too! I love, love, love that TA had an away tifo. When you begin seeing more and more of this in MLS, our support is catching up with the rest of the world.
And finally, to round out Cascadia tifo, Curva Collective had some tifo of their own. The explanation from Curva: We decided to show our appreciation for the longest serving player at our Club…and thought the day before his Birthday would be a good time for it. In the Ghanaian dialect of Twi it essentially means, “We Wish You A Happy Birthday King Koffie”. Much appreciation to Lawrence Obro and Aminu Abdallah for steering us in the right direction with the words. Thanks to everyone who came up with the plan, created it, and helped with the execution. Thanks to Bob Frid for taking this photo.
