So I had a lot of time on my hands over the Thanksgiving break from school, and with not much Quakes news to pay attention to, I compiled a rough timeline of the SGs of Quakes and the major events related to them, based on digging through past threads on this subreddit. 1996: Quakes founded as San Jose Clash. Casbah form as first Quakes SG at sometime around this date. Unnamed skinhead and barra brava SGs form but are short lived. 2003: San Jose Ultras form, due to Casbah not being very focused on vocal support. 2006: Quakes move to Houston and SGs are put on hold 2008: Quakes return to San Jose. Sometime around this date, SJU merges with a group called the 1906 (I believe they supported some now defunct SF team) to become 1906 Ultras. 2010-2013: this is what I believe were the 1906 "glory years," in which they grew to around 300 members and occupied two sections totaling 500+ fans at Buck Shaw. They were able to use smoke and had frequent tifos and streamer displays. 2013: several 1906 members get involved in a violent altercation with a Timbers fan in Portland. MLS pressures the Quakes FO to ban 1906 from many of their supporter privileges. The FO decides to do the following: The 1906 Ultras will be placed on indefinite probation. The 1906 Ultras’ travel privileges will be indefinitely suspended until further notice. The 1906 Ultras will not be allowed to utilize controlled smoke at any match. Due to the probation, language will be strictly monitored. SJU hold a protest at a home game and refuse to sing, resulting in a horrible atmosphere. I am not sure when this ban got lifted, but it certainly isn't still in place. The Faultline is formed as an alternative to 1906. 2014: 1906 becomes San Jose Ultras again. Quakes FO rejects SJU request for a bleacher section at the new Avaya Stadium. 2015: Imperio Sismico becomes the second splinter group to form off of SJU. It is alleged that their founders were former Ultras that were kicked out for violent behavior. Avaya Stadium opens, with the Faultline, Casbah and Imperio all occupying the field-level terrace. The FO wanted SJU to also occupy the terrace, but they didn't like the section for numerous reasons and chose to instead situate themselves in the upper level sections of 117 and 118. The SJU sections were packed for the first few games at Avaya, but numbers then begin to decrease for a variety of different reasons. 2016: smoke bombs are let off in the SJU sections, leading to the FO deciding to again ban SJU collectively, due to SJU refusing to name the people who set off the smoke. SJU is, among other things, banned from having flags for the rest of the season. SJU refuses to show against SKC, claiming they were confronted and threatened with jail time by security. Sometime around 2016, a fight happens in the Avaya parking lot between Imperio and SJU. Although a member of the FO has confirmed this to me, it is unclear who was at fault. 2017: before the start of the 2017 season, Imperio disbands, citing a strained relationship with the FO and the time commitment being too much for their leaders. One leader of Imperio defects to LAFC, another moves away, and the third remains active in the SJ supporters scene. 2018: SJU and the FO agree to move SJU to the lower terrace. Midway through the season, the safe standing rails are removed and a simple bleacher-like structure is built for SJU. However, fans complain that the new location makes SJU quieter. Also, the FO initiates a closed section policy that prevents SJU from growing. For an unknown reason, SJU is absent at a match against the Seattle Sounders at Avaya, in which several Peru/Seattle fans got into the terrace and celebrated with Raul Ruidiaz after his goal. SJU are also absent at the Levi's Stadium friendly against Manchester United. 2019: SJU allege that SJPD officers are harassing them at their tailgate outside Avaya and stage a silent protest for the beginning of the Portland home match. Seven SJU members are banned from the stands after a fight breaks out between SJU and a group of LAFC away fans. It is believed that the LAFC fans started the fight by spitting on and dropping drinks on SJU from above. It is claimed that SJU are prevented from displaying their tifo at the 2019 Stanford match. SJU also fails to fill both sections for the first time ever at Stanford. SJU enjoys a numbers boost near the end of the season, thanks in part to a playoff battle and Wondo joining the section while suspended. Epicentro 74 is founded. Although one of their leaders was a previous Imperio leader and they share many of the same members, they insist that they are not affiliated with the defunct group. Epicentro forms a friendship with Faultline and stand next to them for the later parts of the 2019 season. After the season, Epicentro announce that they have recieved official FO designation as an SG. Rumors emerge on Quakes forums of a new group being planned for the 2020 season. Additional rumors emerge on Instagram of a redone lower terrace.
