The New Style

How do you embrace history while confronting a complicated future? San Jose Earthquakes president Dave Kaval stops by ahead of the club's rebrand to talk about a new look, a new stadium and why he believes you don't need to spend like Toronto, LA, New York or Seattle to compete for MLS Cup. We also take a look at the US national team ahead of its friendly vs. South Korea – what are the three things fans need to watch for as the World Cup creeps closer?

Join the Quakes as they unveil their new logo at a free public event on Thursday, Jan. 30, at San Pedro Square Market in downtown San Jose beginning at 5:30 pm. Click here for more info.
