The San Jose Earthquakes have a new look. They’re just not sharing it yet.

The Earthquakes announced on Thursday that a new logo and uniforms would be revealed on Jan. 30 at the club’s 40th Anniversary Party in downtown San Jose, a year that will be punctuated by the construction of a new soccer-specific stadium for 2015.

From what I'm hearing it's actually Blue, Red, Black. They're supposedly going to have a blue primary (like they initially had in MLS), red secondary (like the old NASL Quakes) and the third color utilized on both in some way will be black. The chevrons are rumored to be incorporated into both the new logo and the new kits in some way.

One of the more scattered identities in American soccer -- red in NASL, blue first time in MLS, black second time in MLS. Going back to blue and relegating black to trim seems like the obvious idea, with maybe a "throwback" red away kit?

I'm actually quite bummed about this change. I absolutely loved the change from the Clash to the Earthquakes, and their color scheme is one of my favorite in sports. I even love that cheesy soccer ball fault line logo they have.

Well, I meant this logo (Richter scale, fault lines, whatever)

But I see that they took that out in the 2008 rebrand. Oh well, still a cool logo and great color scheme IMO.

And I absolutely swear they once used a logo with a cracked soccer ball. Maybe I dreamt that though. EDIT: Ahh yes, here it is. Absurdly awesome.

Either way, I'm kinda sad they're phasing out the 90s cheesiness of the MLS. I totally understand why, but it was kinda what made the MLS unique to other soccer leagues. Oh well.
