Another action-packed MLS weekend, another set of the fan-created art form we know and love as tifo! With these real-time creations existing pretty ephemerally — see our story here on what happens to old tifo — we can at least try to preserve them digitally. Here are some highlights from this past weekend.
For Atlanta United’s second home match — a 4-0 win over the Chicago Fire! — fans rolled out this display reading “Show Racism the Red Card,” fitting nicely with the recent launch of MLS’ “Don’t Cross the Line” campaign this year.

Shout-out to Dallas fans for bringing out displays on either side — including one playing on the by-now-classic Arthur meme. They, too, later got to celebrate a home win, this time 2-1 over the New England Revolution.

Vancouver fell 0-2 at home to Toronto FC, but their supporters still won with another show of solidarity against racism.

Over in Portland, the Timbers Army once again sent a message of inclusiveness and the fight against discrimination. (They later bagged a 4-2 home win over Houston.)

Finally, in Seattle on Sunday night, Sounders fans officially celebrated their Cup victory last December — and a 3-1 victory over the visiting Red Bulls. Here’s how they kicked that off.
