The article reports that Major League Soccer and the owners of the Oakland Athletics baseball team had announced a deal that would bring a new San Jose Earthquakes soccer team back to San Jose, California, if a stadium plan can be developed. The San Jose Earthquakes moved to Houston after the 2005 season ended, but the league retained the Earthquakes name for a future San Jose franchise. The deal between the league and Oakland Athletics's major owners Lew Wolff and John Fisher gives them three years to develop a new stadium for soccer and staff up a completely new team that would carry the Earthquakes name.
