Being on shaky ground makes one uneasy, but for the San Jose Earthquakes the performance on the field has been anything but as they cruise through the 2019 MLS regular season currently positioned for a playoff spot. However, it is not just the Earthquakes on the pitch performance that’s newsworthy.


8x8 announced a multi-year Earthquakes sponsorship, serving as the MLS squad’s official cloud communications and contact center partner for its communications needs. The sponsorship involves not only the provision of communications and collaboration solutions for the Earthquakes, but national TV advertising and an opportunity for expanded brand awareness, as well.

“San Jose is fortunate to be home to world-class soccer, and we’re pleased to become a partner of the Earthquakes both on and off the field,” noted Vik Verma, CEO of 8x8. “To provide the Earthquakes organization with a cloud communications solution that increases staff productivity and improves collaboration with colleagues, outside vendors and fans is a win-win for everyone.”

As part of the sponsorship, 8x8 receives signage space around the stadium, in addition to instant replay as well as a series of videos showcasing how 8x8 technologies assist the Earthquakes on and off the field.  

Jessica Smith, Vice President of Sponsorship at the San Jose Earthquakes noted, “We look forward to using 8x8’s solution for our critical communications functions, ensuring we deliver exceptional experiences for our employees and fans.”

Cloud communications are taking a permanent position in organizations large and small, and now MLS fans are afforded the opportunity to see exactly what they can do.
