San Jose Earthquakes 2015 Season
4/3/15 - With six points through their first four games, the San Jose Earthquakes are off to a decent start to the Major League Soccer campaign. The Quakes need to work on scoring goals at home, however; of the six goals they’ve scored as a team this season, four have come away from their new playpen, Aviva Stadium.
2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of the San Jose Earthquakes (as a franchise in the old North American Soccer League), and to mark this occasion, the Quakes have recently unveiled a new badge and new kits – including a third kit in red and white to pay tribute to the old NASL Quakes. Easily the name to keep an eye on is that of goal-poaching forward Chris Wondolowski. “Wondo” has made himself a favorite of Quakes supporters for his proficiency in finishing scoring opportunities, and his scoring for club has drawn national-team attention as well. Down the road, the Quakes are set to inaugurate the Bay Area’s newest stadiums – opening Levi’s Stadium on August 2 of this year against Seattle; and then in 2015, moving into their own purpose-built stadium not far from the current location of Buck Shaw Stadium, their current home.
