The San Jose organization was established in 1994, when San Jose became a charter member of Major League Soccer on June 15. San Jose joined Boston, Columbus, Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey and Washington, D.C. as the first teams in MLS. Between November, 1994 and June 1995, Tampa Bay, Denver, Kansas City and Dallas were added as clubs and the San Jose team was assigned to the Western Conference.The club began to take shape on August 1, 1995 when a Bay Area soccer icon, Peter Bridgwater, was named the President and General Manager of the team. Bridgwater previously served as the owner and general manager of the NASL version of the San Jose Earthquakes, and was one of the founders of the Western Soccer Alliance in the mid-1980s. Bridgwater was also the Venue Executive Director for the San Francisco venue of World Cup 1994.The San Jose MLS club began its history nicknamed the "Clash," a moniker it kept for four seasons before changing the name of the organization to "Earthquakes" prior to the 2000 season, embracing the name of the former NASL franchise that had been successful in the area throughout the 1970's and 1980's.Information pulled from official website of the San Jose Earthquakes: http://sanjose.earthquakes.mlsnet.com
