SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) – The San Jose Earthquakes 2021 schedule has been released, and there’s good news for Bay Area soccer fans.

The Quakes home opener is scheduled for April 24th against FC Dallas, and the team is set to have fans in the stands.

The game will mark the first sporting event with fans in Santa Clara County in more than a year.

The capacity of fans allowed will depend on what tier the county is in at the time the game is played. Capacity is limited to 20% in the red tier, 33% in the orange tier, and 67% in the least-restrictive yellow tier. Only people who live in California can attend.

The Quakes plan to release more ticket information in the coming weeks.

The MLS announced that match play will begin on April 16th.  The start of the regular season typically would take place in March, but it was pushed back due to league negotiations with the players association and coronavirus concerns.
