Earthquake Resurrection? SJSU Seeks Stadium Partnership

MOST COMMENTED

Less than two years after the San Jose Earthquakes relocated to Houston, a new stadium deal may yet bring professional soccer back to Silicon Valley. San Jose State University President Don Kassing on Tuesday agreed to partner with developer Lew Wolff to create a multipurpose sports facility next to the university's current Spartan Stadium. The project would cost approximately $80 million and would house the SJS football team and hopefully, a new MLS team. "It's going as well as I could have hoped," Wolff, who's keen to see MLS return to Silicon Valley, said of the deal. He declined to provide specifics.

Under their vision, the MLS expansion club would once again be called the San Jose Earthquakes. The stadium would have a total capacity of 23,000 to 30,000. It would be a revenue-sharing partnership, meaning the university and the MLS club would keep the money earned from their respective events. As it stands, the deal has legs, but before anything is finalized Wolff and the university have to reach a written agreement on the partnership before the city council takes a serious look.
