MLS POWER RANKINGS

Review which remaining teams offer the best chance to lift the MLS Cup trophy this season.

The San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer will open the San Francisco 49ers' new stadium next summer.

San Jose will host the rival Seattle Sounders FC on Aug. 2, 2014, for the debut of the $1.2 billion Levi's Stadium at 49ers team headquarters. The venue seats approximately 68,500.

Earthquakes season ticketholders and Levi's Stadium ticketholders will have priority for the game, while general admission tickets will go on sale at a later date that has yet to be announced.

The reigning NFC champion 49ers are in their farewell year at Candlestick Park, where they have played since 1971.

The Earthquakes on Wednesday promoted Mark Watson to head coach from his interim post.
