Coming Together for Victims of Hurricane Harvey

We are soccer fans. We are passionate about the game. We are passionate about our players. We are passionate about our teams.

We enjoy the competition. We enjoy the close-calls. We enjoy jumping out of our seat, if only to sometimes sit back down disappointed.

We are soccer fans, no matter what team we choose to follow and to love. It’s that passion that brings us together – sometimes in times of need.  While the Houston Dynamo are not our favorite team, they are still a soccer team to a great community that has suffered some great misfortune.

Please show your San Jose pride as we reach out to our beautiful community and ask for aid toward the Houston community. Every dollar you donate will be matched** by the San Jose Casbah Community Fund.

We will be making a donation to the Houston Food Bank and to the Houston SPCA.  Even if you have only a dollar to spare, it is more than the Hurricane Harvey victims have at this point, so please donate to your choice.  Do not forget that your donation will be matched by your San Jose Earthquakes Supporter’s Group.

Donations will be collected until Friday, September 15, as we get ready to welcome the Houston Dynamo to our town.

**Up to $1,000

It’s GO Time!

California Clasico: Part Deux

Going into the California Clasico on the low-end of the teeter-totter is not what we hoped for, but we still believe in our Quakes (deep breath – – – deep breath) and we’re hoping to start off July with a bang!

What better way to do that than at our annual California Clasico Tailgate to Remember!  With that comes the table full of goodies, the Magic Cooler full of magic, and the aroma of our favorite Taco Guy!

Taco Guy this year includes:  All-You-Can-Eat Chicken Tacos, Steak Tacos, and Quesadillas.   You get your side choice of Beans and/or Rice, and fixings of Green Salsa, Red Salsa, Sour Cream, and Pico de Gallo

Pricing is as follows:  

$15 Casbah/Faultline members, Click Here: Taco Guy (Casbah Member)

FYI, your membership giveaway will be available at this tailgate

And finally, this year, we’re going back to where it all began.  El Camino Grove will be our stomping grounds for the tailgate.  If you are a VIP or Platinum season ticket holder, you will already have a parking pass for this location.  If you are not, we will have access to 40 parking passes to sell.  We are still waiting on the pricing for those passes, but we will pass on that information as soon as we get it.

Okay, let’s get this party started!!!!!

Farewell to Imperio Sismico

I regret to announce that Imperio Sismico will no longer continue as a registered supporter’s group for the San Jose Earthquakes going forward into the 2017 season. As you may or may not know, it takes a tremendous amount of effort to run a supporter’s group. That effort, unfortunately, was too often spent in matters with the Front Office.  This is one aspect of running a Supporter’s Group that should be straightforward and easy to navigate, however it is oftentimes not the case.

While changes have been made in the Earthquakes office that are meant to alleviate this constant, the past three years has nevertheless taken its toll on the Imperio Sismico leadership . As the President of the San Jose Casbah,  I thoroughly understand and support Henry and his leadership team’s decision.  I welcome any and all members of Imperio to please continue to join The Casbah at tailgates, in the stadium on game days, and at away-games,  going forward. You will always be welcome with us on and off the field.

Thank you to Imperio for helping to support our San Jose Earthquakes over the years.  We welcome you in continuing that support in the years to come, even if it’s not in an “official” capacity, because you will always be an Earthquakes Supporter.
