There were many events that defined the San Jose Earthquakes run to
the Eastern Conference Championship. Each day we will reveal the
latest in our countdown of the 10 most memorable moments from 2010.
Stay tuned!

The San Jose Earthquakes made significant headway in furthering its bond with club partner Tottenham Hotspur in 2010.

After visiting Spurs headquarters in London during a 10-day trip across the pond in March, the Quakes invited their club partners to California for a match at Buck Shaw Stadium. To the delight of all soccer fans in the Bay Area, Tottenham Hotspur dropped by Silicon Valley for a week of training and a nationally televised friendly.

The names included Robbie Keane, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Harry Rednapp. Over 1,000 fans flocked to the Nutrilite Training Facility for a midweek open practice and the match, a scoreless draw, attracted a sellout crowd.

On the business side, delegations from the San Jose Earthquakes, Tottenham Hotspur, South China FC, Internacional and Supersport United held a summit meeting to strengthen the partnership between clubs.

For fans and members of the Front Office alike, Tottenham Hotspur's visit to San Jose was an outright success.
