This Saturday, March 2, 2024, the passion for classics will be celebrated at PayPal Park as the San Jose Earthquakes take on the LA Galaxy in their season opener. But this isn't just a game; it's an experience that extends beyond the pitch, filled with innovations and challenges.

With the increasing digitization, game tickets are now entirely digital, accessible through the Earthquakes app. This shift to the digital world aims to streamline the fan experience, yet it also raises questions about accessibility and digital exclusion.

Moreover, PayPal Park now operates with a cashless concessions system, reflecting a growing trend in sports venues worldwide. While this may streamline the purchasing process and enhance security, it also raises privacy and financial exclusion concerns. How can we ensure that all fans have equal access to food and beverages during the game, regardless of their financial situation?

Tonight's theme, "This Is 50", celebrates the Earthquakes' 50 years of soccer, highlighting the club's rich history and culture. It's an opportunity for fans to relive memorable moments and honor the legends who have helped shape the club over the years. This connection to the past is crucial for keeping the club's essence alive, even amidst all modern innovations.
