San Jose Earthquakes Record
As one of the charter members of the league, the San Jose Earthquakes have had time to development their share of rivalries and history. Originally titled the San Jose Clash, the team rebranded itself to the Earthquakes in 1999. The name Earthquakes dates back to the 1970s when San Jose had a team in the now defunct North American Soccer League. After the 1999 season, the Earthquakes began to see success and by 2001 they captured their first MLS Cup. The Quakes were league champions again in 2003.
An interesting fact about the Earthquakes is that in 2006 and 2007 the team did not exist. Due to stadium issues that could not be solved, the team relocated to Houston. The Earthquakes returned to the Western Conference in 2008 with a new roster and manager. The fans did feel quite a sting during those two years the franchise was gone – as the Houston Dynamo would go on to capture the MLS Cup both seasons.
San Jose’s biggest rival is the LA Galaxy. The clubs have played multiple times every season – excluding 2006 and 2007 – and the winner of the season series is awarded the California Clasico. LA leads the all-time regular series but San Jose did defeat the Galaxy in 2001 MLS Cup 2-1 in overtime. The Quakes have a growing rivalry with the Seattle Sounders. The two clubs compete for the Heritage Cup. Their rivalry dates back to the North American Soccer League days and as Seattle becomes one of the most popular and successful club fans and bettors can expect to see it become more prominent rivalry through the MLS.
San Jose plays at Avaya stadium. The stadium was completed in 2015 and with its completion fans were finally confident that the team would not leave San Jose again. The stadium has a capacity of 18,000 but due to the large demand for tickets additional seats are often added and numbers usually exceed 20,000.
