SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The San Jose Sharks expect to call SAP Center their home for at least the next 10 years.
Sharks owner Hasso Plattner and San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo announced Friday that the team and the city have reached a lease extension agreement at SAP Center through May 8, 2025, subject to approval by the City Council.
The current lease runs through June 30, 2018. Beginning in the 2026-27 season, the Sharks will be on a year-to-year lease through 2040. As part of the new deal, the city and Sharks have agreed on a plan to maintain and upgrade the facility.
