San Jose Earthquakes Plan for State-of-the-Art Football Field and Practice Complex
The team’s practice building would include locker rooms, weight room, dining room, theater, medical and hydrotherapy treatment facility, equipment and laundry rooms, coaches’ offices and staff, and much more.
All 10 pitches in the complex would be floodlit and at least three of Quakes’ four pitches would feature natural grass. The six pitches for public use would use grass.
