Earthquakes Stadium Renders

I don't know about you guys, but I'm drooling over these Quakes stadium renders. My only concern is noise with the proximity of the airport and the U-shaped design. Earthquakes fans will have no choice but to be louder than the planes ;).


  1. If the A's move falls through, any chance they'd put the Quakes stadium downtown instead?

  2. That's a great question. It would definitely be a better location than Coleman, but it might be too expensive of a location for a soccer stadium. The proposed A's location is such a killer spot with it's proximity to transit, freeways, and downtown. To maximize that location, Baseball would be ideal since there are so many more games than soccer and 4 times the attendees.

    I honestly think in the end we'll get the A's, but that would be a great option if plans fall through. I doubt Lew Wolff will even comment on that idea because he seems fully committed to putting the A's in that space.

  3. They should build the stadium downtown on Santa Clara St. between 14th and 17th. San Jose Medical Center used to be there. It closed and now it's just an empty lot.
