SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes will celebrate Women’s Soccer Appreciation Night, presented by Good Humor, on Saturday, July 27 when they host the Colorado Rapids at Avaya Stadium. Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 6:45 p.m.
The Earthquakes are proud supporters of women’s soccer and held viewing parties for all 52 matches of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in which the United States claimed their second consecutive title.
Fans can purchase their special event ticket here, which includes a ticket to the match, a Quakes scrunchie, and a pregame Q&A with two Bay Area soccer leaders: Danielle Slaton and Sophie Jones.
Slaton, a former All-American and national champion at Santa Clara University, competed for the United States at the 2000 Olympic Games and 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup. She serves as a sideline analyst for Earthquakes home matches and was on FOX’s broadcast team for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Slaton will also serve as the celebrity drummer pregame. Jones, a former member of the Quakes Academy, is committed to play at Duke University in the fall. She represented the United States at the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup and was recently honored as the Gatorade Girls Soccer National Player of the Year.
