San Jose Earthquakes to play out by the airport?

Just a little under a month ago a deal between Lew Wolff and San Jose University that would result in the two sharing a stadium fell apart causing many to think the dream of return professional soccer to the city was dead. At the time Wolff said he had other options, but declined to mention what those options were. Now it looks like at least one of them is out.

The City of San Jose owns land out near their airport previously owned by Food Machinery Corporation (FMC), who helped manufacturing military platforms such as the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier and the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. They were hoping to find additional industrial usage for this property, but they have failed to do so. Now they are interesting in the Earthquakes buying or leasing some of the land "at fair market value."

San Jose City Manager Les White hopes to have more details on this within a month.

It looks like the idea of the Earthquakes returning to action is not as dead as some had suggested.

Keeping my fingers crossed! Im in Berkeley, so I would love to see them come back to life. I'd all but given up hope.
