San Jose Earthquakes

The San Jose Earthquakes are an American professional soccer team based in San Jose, California, that participate in Major League Soccer (MLS). The team is one of the ten charter members of MLS which competed in the league's first season in 1996 (originally as the San Jose Clash) and took part in the first game in MLS history, defeating D.C. United 1–0. Following the conclusion of the 2005 MLS season, the franchise was officially put on hiatus and the players, head coach Dominic Kinnear and some of his coaching staff were moved to Houston, Texas, where they became the Houston Dynamo. After a two-year absence, the Earthquakes resumed play for the 2008 season.

The Earthquakes has won two MLS Cup titles, in 2001 and 2003, and two MLS Supporters' Shields, in 2005 and 2012. In 2002, the team played in its first CONCACAF Champions Cup (now called the CONCACAF Champions League), making it to the quarterfinals. The team holds a fierce rivalry with the Los Angeles Galaxy in the California Clásico, which is regarded by many as the longest-running rivalry in American soccer.

The team currently plays home games at Buck Shaw Stadium on the Santa Clara University campus in Santa Clara, California, and is coached by former Canadian international and Ipswich Town player Frank Yallop.

Famous quotes containing the words earthquakes and/or san:

    For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: all this is but the beginning of the birth pangs.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 24:7,8.

    Today, San Francisco has experienced a double tragedy of incredible proportions. As acting mayor, I order an immediate state of mourning in our city. The city and county of San Francisco must and will pull itself together at this time. We will carry on as best as we possibly can.... I think we all have to share the same sense of shame and the same sense of outrage.
    Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)
