Project DescriptionJust two miles from downtown San Jose, the 18,000-seat, European-style Avaya Stadium features covered seating that holds in the sound and creates an energetic atmosphere for fans. This soccer-specific stadium offers exceptional sightlines from every angle.
Premium seating options include club, patio and luxury suites. The Premier Midfield and Premier Midline seating sections boast 3,200 upgraded, plush seats. Club seating offers food and beverage delivery service and provides an authentic community experience just feet from the pitch. Patio suites feature 680 square feet of suite space, with comfortable couch-style seating and private wait staff. Field-level luxury suites offer high-end furnishings and are customizable with sliding glass doors and an open floor plan.
The 600-person Supporter’s Section adjacent to a “Beers of the World” concession space has an open terrace standing area that offers a rallying point for die-hard fans. A two-acre 7UP Epicenter Fan Zone features a double-sided video display. Neighboring the 7UP Epicenter Fan Zone is North America’s largest outdoor bar. At 3,650 square feet, the full-service bar offers field-level views.
Avaya Stadium is the first cloud-enabled professional sports venue, a fitting title for the stadium for Silicon Valley’s soccer club. The high-tech fan experience begins with a stadium app. “This will create a very tech-forward, innovative experience for fans that can be in the envy of stadiums from across the world,” said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval.
Designed to achieve the client’s goals for sustainability, the stadium features 882 solar panels – enough to offset power use at regular-season games.
