The San Jose Earthquakes revealed their 2014 regular season schedule on Monday -- even before the book has been closed on the 2013 MLS season -- and already supporters are making plans for the new year of Quakes soccer.
Highlights on the home schedule include a fourth annual Summer Spectacular at Stanford Stadium with three-time guests the LA Galaxy. In mid-July, Frank Yallop makes his Buck Shaw Stadium return at the helm of the Chicago Fire. And on August 2, the Quakes host the Seattle Sounders at Levi's Stadium in the first official sporting event at the San Francisco 49ers new stadium in Santa Clara.
Even the road schedule looks enticing, with four trips planned for Canada and a mouth-watering encounter at Red Bull Arena that will pit the two previous Supporters' Shield winners against each other. Throw in a Cascadia doubleheader in early September, and post-Labor Day plans are very easy to envision.
So how to plan out your viewing plans for 2014. Center Line Soccer photographer Joe Nuxoll has you covered.
