SJU By the Numbers
We have been supporting the San Jose Earthquakes for 20 years. Here’s our contribution to the club in numbers.
The San Jose Ultras were founded on April 19, 2003 by two Romanian immigrants with the goal of bringing the hardcore European style of support they were used to back home in Bucharest to San Jose. The group occupied the South End and Section 135 of Spartan Stadium from 2003-2005, Sections 101 and 109 of Buck Shaw Stadium from 2008-2014 and Section 118-117 of PayPal Park.
A key moment in the group’s history occurred during the second leg of the 2003 Western Conference semifinals against arch-rival Los Angeles Galaxy in which the Earthquakes were down 4-0. The Ultras unveiled a message banner proclaiming: “Win or Lose, we will always be here for you!” The Earthquakes scored 5 goals to win 5-4, and the slogan became a rallying cry for the group. This slogan is the basis behind our entire group. We have seen everything over the years including championships and bottom of the standings performances but we are still here. No matter what you do, we will be here for you, supporting black and blue!
