1. Because it's our first HUGE test of 2014
It's CONCACAF Champions League. We're not only playing for our club, but for our country here. As Clarence Goodson puts it, "any time you have a chance to play in an international tournament, it's an honor." With a chance to advance to the 2014 FIFA Club World Cup, you bet the Quakes are going to take this one seriously.
2. Because it's a fortress
Yes - while we are anxiously awaiting the completion of our brand new home - we can't forget that good ole Buck Shaw has been pretty great to us in the past. Just take our record there: we're on a 19-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. And if that's not good enough, over the last 38 matches we've played there, we've only lost twice. This stat includes matches against international competition like San Luis FC, Norwich City and Swansea City. So yeah, it's a fortress and we need you to continue to make it that way.
3. Did we mention it's CONCACAF Champions League?
It's our chance to test ourselves against the 10-time Liga MX Champions Toluca. What better way to start off 2014 than to upset the top-seeded Mexican side at home? We're going to come out with all guns firing before we head to Toluca for the second leg of the quarterfinal on March 11.
Get your tickets now, in case you haven't already. You're not going to want to miss this one.
