San Jose Earthquakes is a soccer team based in San Jose, California, that competes in Major League Soccer (MLS), the most senior soccer league in the United States. San Jose Earthquakes was established as the San Jose Clash in 1994 becoming a founding member of MLS where they competed starting in 1996. The team rebranded and changed their name in 2000 to San Jose Earthquakes, connecting them with the former professional team that played in San Jose from 1974 to 1988. The franchise was moved at the conclusion of the 2005 MLS season to Houston to become the Houston Dynamo, thus putting the team and its records on hiatus. The team was revived two years later as an MLS expansion franchise, beginning play in 2008.

In addition to the MLS season, San Jose also competes in the annual U.S. Open Cup tournament. Depending on the team's performance in these two competitions, they may also qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs in the same year and the CONCACAF Champions League the following year. The CONCACAF Champions League winner qualifies for the next FIFA Club World Cup. The Earthquakes have won two MLS Cups and Supporters Shields apiece, but they have yet to win the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Having won 4 trophies, San Jose is the eighth most successful MLS club and one of only three clubs to win the MLS Cup and Supporters Shield multiple times.
