spraker.tv customer Portland Timbers named “Best of 2013” for Game Operations

Best Team Operations: Portland Timbers

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Oscars, Tonys, and Grammys, but did you know there were awards for the best game operations by sports teams?

Gameops.com has named spraker.tv client Portland Timbers as one of the top game operations crew of 2013:

The Portland Timbers is another team who seems to do everything at a high-level.  Particularly since their elevation to the MLS in 2011, the team has shown excellence in their operations, ticket sales, community involvement and game production.  Their Timbers Army fan base are known for their loud, enthusiastic support and being a large part of the raucous atmosphere synonymous with Timbers’ games.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Timbers since that 2011 season, designing, installing, upgrading and maintaining their video control room.  This year I was lucky enough to join them as their game day engineer.  Congratulations to Jenifer Smoral and the rest of the excellent crew.
