When the reincarnation of San Jose Earthquakes returns to MLS, it will make its primary home venue Buck Shaw Stadium for home games of the 2008 and 2009 MLS seasons.

In exchange for using the Broncos' home soccer field for their games, the Earthquakes will make a significant investment in the infrastructure at Buck Shaw Stadium and the soccer practice facility.

The upgrades include renovating of the soccer practice field (Stanton Field), adding 5,000 temporary seats to the stadium to bring capacity close to 12,000, as well as adding a portable state-of-the-art digital video board and new public address system. The project will also reconfigure the lights specifically for soccer and expand the hospitality areas.

"We are proud to have the San Jose Earthquakes call Buck Shaw Stadium home," said Dan Coonan, Santa Clara University Director of Athletics and Recreation. Buck Shaw Stadium, opened in 1962, was named after former Santa Clara football coach, Lawrence T. "Buck" Shaw. The university no longer fields a football team.

The agreement between Santa Clara University and the San Jose Earthquakes is subject to the City of Santa Clara approving a permit to allow games to be played at Buck Shaw Stadium.
