you heard? The San Jose Earthquakes team is building a soccer stadium in San
Jose on Coleman Avenue across from the airport. It will hold 18,000 visitors
for a soccer game, and will open for the 2015 season. Max Sandoval, our May
speaker, is an account executive with the San Jose Earthquakes. Max was hired
by the Earthquakes about a year ago after earning a bachelor’s degree in
communications at San Francisco State University. While the new stadium is
under construction, the Earthquakes play at Santa Clara University, Stanford and
other nearby football stadiums. The Earthquakes have bounced around without a
proper home since the early ‘70s, and event spent three years calling Houston
home. With the new stadium, things are looking up for soccer in San Jose and
for the Earthquakes. Thank you, Max, for an illuminating presentation.
