Avaya Stadium officially opened for business on February 27, 2015 and has a capacity of approximately 18,000. It is sponsored by Avaya, headquartered in nearby Santa Clara. The stadium features a canopy roof and the steepest-raked seating in Major League Soccer to provide a better view. Additionally, the area behind the northeast goal houses the largest outdoor bar in North America, a two-acre fan zone and a double-sided video scoreboard. The suites and club seats are located at field level. The stadium is part of a mixed use residential, retail, R&D and hotel development.
The stadium was constructed privately with no public money provided by the city of San Jose. Additionally, Lewis Wolff, owner of the San Jose Earthquakes, offered to pay for the maintenance of the stadium for a 55-year time span. The team organization initially delayed the completion date to the middle of the 2014 MLS season, but later delayed it again to the 2015 season. The seat pattern includes three different shades of blue as well as a smattering of red seats to pay homage to the club’s NASL history. Additionally, the pattern contains the message "Go EQ" written in binary.

This is one of the best stadiums I have been to, and I have been to a few. There is not a bad seat in the house, the beer and food selection is solid with a bunch of food trucks and a decent selection of "Craft" beer, and of course the world's largest outdoor bar. My only beef is that the Earthquake need to put a better team on the pitch. I hope that happens soon.
Great stadium - activities for whole family! Best if one takes public transportation as getting our of the onsite parking lot can be a long process...
