The NetRippers FC are Portland's only soccer club for LGBTQ players who seek a safe and secure location for gay football. Located in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, the NetRippers FC were established in 2006 by a only a handful of members and one team in the Portland Metro League. They were energized and determined to organize a gay soccer club which was desperately lacking within their growing community.



From Natural Wonders to Culture and Cuisine, this irresistibly green region is the essence of the Pacific Northwest!

What makes Portland so special? Some will tell you it’s about the trees, fresh air and proximity to the mountains, rivers and ocean.
