San Jose Earthquakes Return
Yup, Don Garber announced it, yadda yadda.
This is a better move for the league than any other city. Like I said, they already have the original built in fanbase setup and ready to buy tickets. I also liked the idea of having the club float their home matches around the Bay/Silicon Valley area the first year. I am not sure exactly how that would work for the front office or the season ticket holders, but having the club move around it's target area gives more chances for more potential supporters to see noth only the club, but the other clubs in the league.
So we hit 14 clubs next season. Hopefully we have 14 clubs for 2008 as well as 2009 and wait until the 2010 season for the 15th & 16th clubs. I also hope that unless RBNY has started to draw more that 17,000 fans to a home match on average for a season, that NYC be kept off the expansion list.
