“We are proud to announce our partnership with Ovations,” said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval. “Serving fresh, high quality food was extremely important to us as we move into our stadium and they are an ideal partner for our new venue. They have proven to be innovators in the food service industry and together we look forward to providing a fresh approach to stadium concessions.”
The Earthquakes new stadium features numerous concessions locations throughout the grounds, including the largest outdoor bar in North America, a stand with over 40 varieties of beer on tap and a barbecue stand that will have onsite grills.
