San Jose Earthquakes Stats & History

Originally called the San Jose Clash, the Earthquakes were one of the ten original MLS teams. San Jose defeated D.C. United 1-0 in the first match in MLS history. They made the playoffs in 1996 but the team quickly declined. 

San Jose missed out on the playoffs in four consecutive seasons from 1997 to 2000. In 1999, the Clash name was changed to the current Earthquakes. The Quakes had an unprecedented turnaround in 2001. They had the worst record in MLS in 2000 but finished second in the Western Conference in 2001. They managed their first MLS Cup final appearance in the San Jose Earthquakes team stats and defeated rivals L.A. Galaxy, 2-1. 

The Earthquakes appeared in the CONCACAF Champions Cup for the first time in 2001 and made the quarterfinals. They finished second in the West once again in 2002 but failed to defend their title. However, Landon Donovan played a starring role in 2003 as they won their second MLS Cup final. 

The 2005 season was one of the best regular season performances in team history. With the league’s best record, they won the first Supporters’ Shield in the SJ Earthquakes team stats. After the 2005 season, the Quakes moved to Houston and became the Dynamo but their records weren’t transferred. So, the club was on hiatus until 2008 and they missed the playoffs in their first two seasons back.
