Return of the San Jose Earthquakes

They are not back yet, but they are on their way.

David Alioto, in his second year as Executive Vice President of Earthquakes Soccer, LLC, spoke to our club today to update us on Lew Wolfe’s ownership bid for a Major League Soccer Franchise.

While addressing the future of soccer in the South Bay, he admitted that previous incarnations of the Earthquakes were not the models of an ideal franchise. Alioto expects soccer to be a growth sport over the next several years, and wants to be sure that the Earthquakes are competitive and community-oriented, as well.

He also confirmed the group’s interest in acquiring a franchise in the new U.S. professional womens soccer league beginning play as early as 2009.
