Challenge Cup final will include a limited number of fans

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Thorns will host Gotham FC in the Challenge Cup tournament final before a limited number of fans on Saturday, after Oregon Gov. Kate Brown lifted coronavirus restrictions in the state. The Thorns earned the right to host the title match for the National Women’s Soccer League preseason tournament, but an “extreme risk” designation in Multnomah County meant that essentially no fans could attend the match.
