The San Jose Earthquakes: A Seismic Soccer Legacy
Gary Singh, author
In 1974, amid the early days of the North American Soccer League, an unlikely team transformed a quiet suburb into a soccer haven. Combining excellent play with a grass-roots movement of fervent fans, the San Jose Earthquakes shook the Northern California sports landscape. While rival NASL franchises struggled for attendance, the Quakes played sold-out games to the most loyal and passionate fan base in the league, creating an unforgettable and enduring legacy. Ever since then, the San Jose Earthquakes and their fans have overcome all obstacles – leagues collapsing, horrendous rebrandings, dismissive ownership groups, and even a franchise relocation – yet they never gave up. Gary's book, a work of creative nonfiction, documents the entire story from his own experience, beginning in the 1970s until the current day.
