Perfect Day on the Pitch

Perfect Day on the Pitch

June 04, 2018

As the ball leaves the striker’s foot, it begins to wobble as it approaches the upper right corner of the goal. The goalkeeper dives, stretching as far as he can with his entire body in the air. The ball knuckles a bit and drops just under the crossbar and beyond the reach of the goalie. The stadium erupts, celebrating a game-winning goal! This could be your experience at a San Jose Earthquakes MLS soccer match. Their home pitch (soccer field) is called Avaya Field, and it is only about 10 minutes from the Alura Inn. With stars like Chris Wondolowski, Danny Hoesen, Vako, and Andrew Tarbell, you are sure to be delighted by crisp passes, beautiful goals, unbelievable saves, and beautiful soccer. In June and July, you can catch home games against LA FC, New England Revolution, Seattle Sounders, and Real Salt Lake. With any luck, you will witness a goal that the soccer world will be talking about for years to come.

Thank You
