Avaya stadium opens – Let the games begin!/ March 2015 #sjplace San Jose Earthquakes will officially cut the ribbon on February 27 signifying the opening of Avaya Stadium just in time for the first game on the new pitch. On February 28, the Quakes take on the LA Galaxy and fans are in for a real treat when they enter the 18,000-seat soccer stadium. “You don’t understand the size and the scope of the stadium until you are standing inside,” said David Buckholtz of Colliers International, who recently toured the stadium. One of the cool perks inside the stadium is the world’s longest outdoor bar. The massive bar runs almost the full length of the soccer field at the end zone. For tickets, click here.
