Review[edit]

Preseason[edit]

For the second straight year, the Earthquakes played at PDL team Fresno Fuego. The Quakes trained in London for ten days and went 3-0 against fellow MLS side Colorado Rapids and the reserve teams of West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur. San Jose will also have a game against the Houston Dynamo in San Francisco on March 17 and a home game on March 20 against future MLS rival Portland Timbers.

March[edit]

San Jose will begin its thirteenth Major League Soccer regular season at home with a match against Real Salt Lake on March 27, 2010 followed by a road match against the Chicago Fire on April 10, 2010.[2]

May[edit]

The Quakes tallied four straight shutouts and a 393-minute scoreless streak, which ended with a 3-1 home loss to Toronto F.C. on May 29.

October[edit]

With a win October 9 over DC United, the Earthquakes clinched their first trip to the postseason since 2005.

  • ^Note 1 - Toronto FC cannot qualify for the U.S. Open Cup, as it is a Canadian-based team. If they qualify for an automatic berth into the U.S. Open Cup, the next highest placed team not already qualified will be given a berth. Similarly, they cannot qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League through MLS. Rather, they can qualify through the Canadian Soccer Championship. If they qualify for the Champions League through MLS, then the highest placed team not already qualified will qualify.
  • ^Note 3 - 2011 SuperLiga berths are awarded to the top 4 finishing teams from MLS who do not qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League.
