The MLS side will host the inaugural Copa Verde, which will be an annual match for the Timbers against a Liga MX club.
Morelia, which is closing in on a berth in the Liga MX Clausura playoffs, will play at Jeld-Wen Field on July 3. The game will come after the Timbers' bye week and four days ahead of their match against the Columbus Crew. It will also mark the beginning of a busy week at Jeld-Wen Field, which will host two CONCACAF Gold Cup group games on July 9 -- Costa Rica against Cuba, and the USA against Belize.
Part of the proceeds from the Copa Verde match will go toward Portland's Mexican Consulate and its initiative on programs and scholarships for Hispanic youth development, education and health in the city.
