  • The San Jose Earthquakes are an American professional soccer team based in San Jose, California, that participate in Major League Soccer. The team is one of the ten charter members of MLS which competed in the league's first season in 1996 and took part in the first game in MLS history, defeating D.C. United 1–0. Following the conclusion of the 2005 MLS season, the franchise was officially put on hiatus and the players, head coach Dominic Kinnear and some of his coaching staff were moved to Houston, Texas, where they became the Houston Dynamo. After a two-year absence, the Earthquakes resumed play for the 2008 season. The Earthquakes have won two MLS Cup titles, in 2001 and 2003, and two MLS Supporters' Shields, in 2005 and 2012. In 2002, the team played in its first CONCACAF Champions Cup, making it to the quarterfinals. The team holds a fierce rivalry with the LA Galaxy in the California Clásico. Their head coach is Dominic Kinnear, who previously coached the team from 2004 to 2005. The Earthquakes will play at Avaya Stadium beginning in 2015.
