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.

It would be a revenue-sharing partnership, meaning the university and the MLS club would keep the money earned from their respective events.
