Urban Pitch says, “The Avery Dennison Toffee League could only exist in Portland. The city’s rich soccer history and down-to-earth, accepting nature make it perfect for the league, which is one of the most colorful and entertaining amateur leagues in the world. Oh, and it’s weird — because, well, Portland’s proudly weird.
The league was founded just last year, but it has already generated a nationwide buzz through its teams’ unique kits and eccentric personalities, all brought together by the love of the beautiful game.”
Soccer Bible says, “An eclectic group, the ethos of the characters involved has been summarised; "They’re a group that’s been kicking around together for years, meeting every Sunday to catch up on any pitch that’s available since before the last World Cup. They recycle. They ride their bikes to work. They have too many tattoos. They spend their weekends waking up at the crack of dawn to see what’s going on in football leagues overseas before putting their own boots on."
