SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the Earthquakes II match against Real Monarchs on Friday, Sept. 9, originally scheduled to be played at PayPal Park, will now take place at Negoesco Stadium on the campus of the University of San Francisco. The match, which kicks off at 6 p.m., will be hosted in partnership with San Francisco Glens Soccer Club and livestreamed on MLSNEXTPro.com.
Earthquakes Season Ticket Holders can contact their account service representative for $10 tickets to the match while the general public can purchase tickets here.
Quakes II, the Earthquakes’ second team, competes in MLS NEXT Pro. The league is in its inaugural season and has 21 teams, 20 of which are affiliated with teams in Major League Soccer. Rosters are comprised of professional players on first team (MLS) or MLS NEXT Pro contracts, and amateur youth academy players (MLS NEXT).
“We’re really excited to be hosting a Quakes II match for our fans in San Francisco,” said Earthquakes General Manager Chris Leitch. “This event is a testament to our partnership with the San Francisco Glens and our roster proudly features former Glens players.”
Earthquakes II is currently in fifth place in the 11-team Western Conference, just six points outside of the top-four playoff positions. Quakes II has three matches remaining during the 2022 regular season, and the Sept. 9 contest in San Francisco will serve as the team’s final home match and penultimate match overall.
“We’re looking forward to host Quakes II in San Francisco as our clubs continue to grow our ongoing partnership,” said SF Glens Executive Director Mike McNeill. “To be able to bring pro soccer back to San Francisco for one night in conjunction with USF will be a special event that the local soccer community won’t want to miss.”
“I’m thrilled to see the Earthquakes return to San Francisco after all these years,” said Glens Technical Director Jimmy Conrad, who was on the last Earthquakes team to play at Negoesco in 2001 for the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals. “It’s going to be an incredible opportunity for the fans here in The City to connect to the club and, my favorite part, it’s going to allow us to see some future first-team stars play right in our backyard.”
