Home of the San Jose Earthquakes
The Avaya Stadium is home to Major League Soccer's San Jose Earthquakes. The San Jose Earthquakes spent over twenty years in various Bay Area facilities before moving here. The Avaya Stadium opened March 22, 2015, costing $100 million. The stadium is located to the west of the San Jose International Airport. A seismograph was installed in the stadium to sense ground movement during earthquakes. It is also useful to measure ground movement from an excitable crowd!
Stadium tours are available Monday through Friday, from 9 am - 5 pm. The group capacity is 25 people, so be sure to book your tour before full capacity is reached. For more information, please visit the tour website.
