SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes today unveiled the club’s new secondary kit for the 2016 season. The white and red color scheme pays homage to the Quakes rich history, while also looking forward to the future. The kit, which features the club’s recently announced jersey partner Sutter Health across the chest, was introduced to fans at a season ticket holder-only match between the club’s first team and U-18 academy at Avaya Stadium on Wednesday evening.
