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.[18]

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 D.C. United, the Earthquakes clinched their first trip to the postseason since 2005.
