Reno 1868 FC
The Earthquakes and Reno 1868 FC agreed to a multi-year United Soccer League affiliation agreement in June 2016, ahead of the team’s inaugural season of 2017. 1868 FC's home matches take place at Greater Nevada Field in Reno, Nevada, also home to Minor League Baseball's Reno Aces. Greater Nevada Field features a natural grass surface and more than 9,000 seats.
The affiliation allows the Earthquakes expanded opportunities for player development, talent identification and rehabilitation and loan assignments, while managing the technical direction of Reno 1868 FC. The Quakes lead all aspects of soccer operations, while Reno oversees the business side, including corporate partnerships, ticket sales and marketing.
