SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced on Tuesday March 1st the club’s theme nights at home matches during the 2022 MLS regular season.

The 2022 season will see the return of popular heritage nights, including Mexican Heritage Night, presented by Audi (5/7 vs. COL), Vietnamese Heritage Night, presented by Donor Network West (7/17 vs. HOU), and Portuguese Heritage Night, presented by CEFCU (8/20 vs. LAFC).

Fans can also look forward to celebrating local heroes (3/5 vs. CLB), Pride (5/22 vs. SKC), and women’s soccer (7/30 vs. RSL), among many others throughout the year.

The highlight of the theme night calendar is the return of the California Clasico to Stanford Stadium on June 25, presented by Stanford Medicine. The match between the Earthquakes and LA Galaxy, annually scheduled near the Fourth of July, is the Bay Area’s biggest summer sporting event and features 50,000 fans and a spectacular postgame fireworks show. The California Clasico hasn’t taken place since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
