Quakes President Dave Kaval will join other Bay Area sporting executives as well as entrepreneurs and practitioners to lead a panel discussion about the perpetually changing In-Stadium sports experience. The talk, "The Reinvention of the In-Stadium Experience", will open at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 300 California Street, Suite 500, San Francisco, CA.
A crucial component of the fan experience, stadiums are adapting their designs to maximize enjoyment for their team's followers. With the Quakes' new stadium set to open in 2014, San Jose's President Dave Kaval has devoted significant time to evaluating and analyzing stadium designs for the benefit of the Quakes' faithful. San Jose's new stadium will feature state-of-the-art entertainment amenities while maintaining an intimate experience.
After hoisting the 2012 Supporters' Shield, the 2013 Quakes will play their final season at Buck Shaw. All the while, Dave Kaval and staff will be working fastidiously to perfect the Quakes' soccer-specific stadium.
