Portland Timbers U23 is an American soccer team based in Salem, Oregon, United States. Although founded in 2008 as part of the development system for the Portland Timbers USSF D2 organization, beginning in 2011 they are part of the development system for the Major League Soccer franchise of the same name. The team plays in USL League Two, the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid.
