On December 11, 2021, Portland hosted the Major League Soccer Cup Final for the first time. Providence Park erupted after a late equalizer from Felipe Mora sent the game into extra time.

Here's a look at the day in pictures, from the crowd-painted tifo to the two Charas to the one and only Diego Valeri.
