Out with the old, in with the new.
The San Jose Earthquakes have announced that they will unveil a new logo and new uniforms on Jan. 30 as part of their 40th anniversary party. The party will be held at San Pedro Square Market in downtown San Jose and is a free event that is open to the public and will include a live concert.
“We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate this momentous occasion with our fans at one of San Jose’s most iconic venues, San Pedro Square Market,” said Earthquakes president Dave Kaval in a statement. “As we celebrate 40 years of Quakes soccer and with the new stadium scheduled for completion this year, we felt this was the perfect time to unveil a new look that embodies the true spirit of this club. We look forward to a memorable night that will highlight all of the great things that make this club special.”
The Earthquakes were scheduled to begin playing in their soccer-specific stadium later this year, but complications with construction caused delays that pushed its opening date back to 2015.
