The Portland Pride are a defunct indoor soccer team that played in the Continental Indoor Soccer League (CISL) from 1993 to 1997.

History[edit]

In 1993, a new league, the Continental Indoor Soccer League (CISL) began its first season. Traditionally, indoor soccer has been a winter sport, but the CISL decided to play a summer season. This would keep it from competing with the more established National Professional Soccer League.

The Portland Pride was a founding member of the CISL, being established on October 1, 1992. Owned by Brian Parrott, the team played its home games in Portland, Oregon’s Memorial Coliseum. In 1995, Parrott sold the team to a group led by Norm Daniels.

In 1997, the team and the league played its last season. At the end of the season, the CISL folded and the Pride ownership moved the team to the Premier Soccer Alliance where the team played under the name Portland Pythons.
