Quakes launch #MilesToEpicenter presented by Alaska Airlines

Fans can submit a photo for a chance to win a VIP trip for four

SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes launched their “Miles to the Epicenter of Soccer” campaign today, presented by Alaska Airlines. The campaign gives fans the chance to measure their distance from anywhere in the world to the site of the Earthquakes New Stadium at 1145 Coleman Ave in San Jose with the opportunity to win prizes by sharing their photos.

To enter for a chance to win the grand prize, fans can either pick up a “Miles to the Epicenter” sign at the Quakes Front Office or download and print a paper one from the team’s official website at sjearthquakes.com. Using the sign, fans can then write their distance from the Quakes New Stadium on the sign and take a photo of themselves with the sign. To enter the contest, fans have the option of emailing the photo to milestoepicenter@sjearthquakes.com or uploading the photo through the club website, sjearthquakes.com. All of the photos will then be displayed at sjearthquakes.com and the team’s official Facebook page, facebook.com/sanjoseearthquakes.

Fans can then share their submission with the hashtag #milestoepicenter and vote for their favorite photo. The photo that receives the most votes will win a VIP trip for 4 to an Earthquakes away match, including airfare on Alaska Airlines and hotel.

The contest with Alaska Airlines runs through the Quakes game on Aug. 2 at Levi’s® Stadium. In addition to being able to pick up the signs at the office, 5,000 fans will receive the “Miles to the Epicenter” signs, courtesy of Alaska Airlines, at the Quakes match against D.C. United on July 11 at Buck Shaw Stadium.
