SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes will host Chris Wondolowski Bobblehead Night, presented by Wells Fargo, on Sunday, Aug. 18 when the club hosts Sporting Kansas City at 8 p.m. PT. The bobblehead, available to 5,000 fans at the gates on Aug. 18, will commemorate Wondolowski’s memorable 2012 campaign.
The Earthquakes and Wells Fargo are teaming up for the third-consecutive year for a commemorative bobblehead giveaway. The 2013 version will pay homage to Wondolowski’s record-tying 27-goal season and second career Budweiser Golden Boot. That haul also included an MLS-record 11 game-winning goals and a career-high seven assists. For his efforts, Wondolowski was rewarded with the league’s highest individual honor, the Volkswagen MLS Most Valuable Player.
As a lead up to the bobblehead giveaway, from July 12 through July 31, 2013, San Jose Earthquakes fans can visit a participating Wells Fargo banking location, open a new Wells Fargo consumer or business checking account, and receive an Earthquakes scarf. Offer is available at over 100 Wells Fargo banking locations throughout Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Santa Cruz Counties. See your local Wells Fargo banker for complete details. © 2013 Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. All rights reserved. Member FDIC.
Wondolowski was the featured player for the club’s first collaborative bobblehead giveaway with Wells Fargo in 2011. That statuette included a special golden boot on Wondolowski’s right foot, a reference to the award he won for leading the league with 18 goals in 2010. The Danville native and Landon Donovan are the only two players in club history to be recognized twice with commemorative bobbleheads.
