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.
