They used to be the San Jose Earthquakes (not a San Diego team), and played at San Jose State University Spartan Field (the smallest acceptable field in the MLS). A friend of mine always got a pair of season tickets.

The Earthquakes (who used to be the San Jose Clash) had a history of swinging between worst-to-first-to-worst-to-first records while in San Jose. San Jose retained the rights to the team name and record, so the team was forced to change names when they moved to Houston.

San Jose is planning to form a new team for the upcoming season.

Huh? They are a soccer team, are they not?
