Have you ever attended an Earthquakes game and had the urge to order food while the match was being played?
You could get out of your seat and wander over to the concessions stand, but what if Chris Wondolowski takes a pass from Bobby Convey and slams home a cracker that every fan will be talking about for weeks? You can watch the highlights, but we all know that's not the same as the frenzied emotion that surrounds a goal.
This season, fans can avoid the risk of missing that special moment by ordering concessions from their seat. Download Yorder to your iPhone or Android phone, look through the menu, place an order and it will arrive at your seat within 15 to 20 minutes.
Another new app to hit the pitch this season is Liveshare, a photo-sharing technology that could help your mug appear on the stadium's Jumbotron. Fans can download Liveshare to their phone and add pictures to a San Jose Earthquakes vs. Real Salt Lake stream. That gallery will be available on Facebook, SJEarthquakes.com and could find its way onto the scoreboard during the match.
If you're looking for highlights, want to see what's new in the Quakes Twitter feed, or check out Jon Busch's full bio, download the MLS 2011 MatchDay app. Aside from San Jose-related material, fans can also find information from around the league in a timely fashion.
Finally, be sure to tell your friends where you are when you arrive at Buck Shaw Stadium. The Quakes are looking for a new Mayor at Buck Shaw Stadium on FourSquare and will offer special discounts as the season progresses to fans who share their location via Facebook Places.
When Quakes fans walk through the gates of Buck Shaw Stadium this season, they will have a beyv of smartphone options to pick from.
Welcome to Buck Shaw 2.0.
