Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise the San Jose Earhquakes has announced a New Stadium Founding Partnership with Stanford Health Care.

As part of the partnership Stanford Health Care will continue as the club’s official team physicians and will also host an annual title night.

“We are proud to sign a New Stadium Founding Partnership with Stanford Health Care,” said Earthquakes President Dave Kaval.

“Having worked with them for the last two years, we know that their team of physicians are fantastic to work with and truly elite in their field.

“They continue to build an impressive reputation in sports medicine and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”

The Earthquakes and Stanford Health Care signed an initial partnership agreement in 2013. As part of the new deal, Stanford Health Care was the club’s title sponsor for Breast Cancer Awareness Night, which was held in October.

“At Stanford Health Care, we’re thrilled to be the team physicians for the San Jose Earthquakes,” said William Maloney, MD, chair of Stanford’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.

“Our team of sports medicine experts is deeply experienced in treating elite athletes, and we provide the Earthquakes a multi-disciplinary approach and immediate access to a full range of medical specialists, all in one place.

“That means faster diagnoses and the ability to quickly implement a treatment plan for the players, helping them stay in the game.”
