Congratulations to Dennis Ventilacion, the winner of the #BeatLA poster contest for the 2015 California Clasico match on Saturday, June 27 at Stanford Stadium!

Ventilacion, a native of Monterey, was introduced to the opportunity by his friend, a current season ticket holder with the club. A passionate Bay Area sports fan, Ventilacion found his inspiration from the California rivalry and his love for the beautiful game.

“I was really trying to focus on four elements,” Ventilacion said. “The first element was to have a soccer feel to it. The second element was to have a player taking a free kick around a wall. The third element was to express the Beat LA theme. Lastly, I wanted the poster to be different from anything else we’ve seen in the past. I went for a more classic look with the match being named the California Clasico.”

As the first place winner, Ventilacion will receive four (4) match tickets, pregame tunnel access, his poster signed by the Quakes team in a limited edition frame and have his poster distributed to fans on match day. 

We also want to congratulate the four other finalists in the #BeatLA poster contest: Ben Mahler, Brian Kruse, Krista Griego, and Mark Barbeau! Great job, everyone!

On May 7, Quakes midfielder Tommy Thompson was named to the U.S. U-20 National Team roster for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
 
In preparation for the world-wide tournament, Thompson and the U-20's journeyed to nearby Australia to face the Socceroos just weeks before kicking off against Myanmar on May 30. 
 
After an assist against Australia and a timely Finding Nemo reference, we look back at Thompson's time "Down Under" from a social media perspective ahead of next month's World Cup festivites.

Happy Mother's Day, Quakes fans! 

Today's a special day to recognize the most loving person in your life, your backbone and your #1 fan, on and off the field. After all the times she's driven you to soccer practice, taken you to soccer games or dropped you off at a Quakes match, today's the day to show your mom how much you really love and appreciate her.

We caught up with some Quakes' players and asked them what they love about their mom's so much! 

Tommy Thompson: "It's difficult to decide on just one memory, but one of my favorites has to be when my mom decided to make the two and a half hour drive down to our scrimmage against C.S Vida. Unfortunately, my dad couldn't make the trip, but that didn't stop my #1 fan from making the trek by herself. I was so happy that she came because I ended up scoring my first goal for San Jose in that game. It was a special moment for me and to be able to share that with someone who has been there by my side supporting me since the beginning was something i'll never forget. Love you, Mom."

Fatai Alashe: "You can say my favorite memory is when she ran out of gas driving me home because she wanted to go to the gas station that was across the street instead of the one we were right next to. Love you, Mom."

Jordan Stewart: "I wouldn't say I have a favorite memory, but I know my mother is my best friend & she has shown me what unconditional love is."

Steven Lenhart: "My mom should have been a formula one driver. Every time we got in the car you would have thought we were being chased by the cops, but no, we were just going to The Troy Club for an afternoon swim. Love you, Mom."

Khari Stephenson: "If it wasn’t for my mom, I wouldn’t be where I am today. She means the world to me. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom."

Marvell Wynne: "There are too many great memories with my mom. What I like best about my mom is her great smile!"

JJ Koval: "My mom, Lisa, always has the biggest smile on her face. She is such an amazing example of love and sacrifice to me. I am so thankful for her. Happy Mother's Day!"

Mark Sherrod: "There was a mirror in our house growing up, that everybody would always walk by. Whenever my mom and I would pass it, she would wrap her arms around me, and we would just put the biggest smile on our faces and say "CHEESE!", and look at the mirror as if somebody was taking a picture of us." 

Adam Jahn: "One of the things I like most about my mom is that she has such a positive impact on everyone around her. She is so kind and joyful. I can't help but smile whenever I see her!"
