SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today that the club has sold more than 30,000 tickets to the California Clasico at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, June 25, presented by Stanford Medicine. The Bay Area’s biggest summer sporting event features the Earthquakes vs. LA Galaxy, a military appreciation celebration, and the region’s largest fireworks show postgame. In honor of the 10-year anniversary of the first California Clasico at Stanford Stadium, the Quakes will recognize players and coaches that have competed in previous matches at halftime.
Tickets for the California Clasico are available here. In addition to individual tickets, the Quakes are also offering a fireworks four-pack deal that includes four tickets for just $100. Tickets for a group of 10 or more can be purchased by calling the Earthquakes Front Office at (408) 556-7700.
The annual California Clasico began in 2012 and was held each year through 2019, with an attendance of more than 50,000 fans every season. Following a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the season’s main event returns in 2022. San Jose holds a 5-1-2 record vs. LA at Stanford, with four come-from-behind victories.
Prior to entering the stadium, fans can indulge in a variety of food and beverage options in the Epicenter, including food trucks from local restaurants and a beer garden presented by Anheuser-Busch. The Epicenter will also feature a DJ and a youth zone with activities such as soccer darts, face painting, and a photo booth. The Epicenter will be available for enjoyment from 3-6 p.m.
The Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets, a 140-person drum corps, will perform on the field pregame. The match ball will then be delivered by a skydiver from Team Fastrax™, the largest professional parachute demonstration team in the world. Fans will also be treated to a flyover courtesy of the United States Air Force, featuring a Fairchild Republic A-10.
The Quakes first played the California Clasico at Stanford Stadium in 2012, a 4-3 come-from-behind win against the Galaxy. To recognize the 10-year anniversary of the Bay Area’s premier summer sporting event, the club will host a halftime ceremony to honor players who have competed in previous iterations, including Sam Cronin, Alan Gordon, Steven Lenhart, Marvin Chavez, and Jason Hernandez, among others.
Following the match, fans will enjoy the largest fireworks show in the Bay Area, produced by Pyro Spectaculars by Souza, Inc.
As a result of the club’s Military Blitz campaign and the generous donations from fans, sponsors, and others close to the Earthquakes organization, more than 3,700 tickets will be distributed to members of the armed forces and their families free of charge.
