SJHN Daily: Sharks’ SAP Center Lease Expires Next Year, Pavelski Goes to Conference Finals Again



The San Jose Sharks’ lease next year at SAP Center is about to expire.

But don’t worry!

According to San Jose Spotlight, both sides seem to be on the same page as they try to figure out the future of the Sharks at SAP Center.

“I’m very committed to keeping the Sharks here,” mayor Matt Mahan said.

“When it comes to economic development, we work with the city. We trust the city,” Sharks senior VP of Government Affairs Chris Shay said.

There are issues to hammer out, per Spotlight: “Next year the city, which owns the arena, can hike the Sharks’ rent annually, and Sharks Sports and Entertainment leaders are hinting at a desire for the city to help pay for upgrades in lease talks.”

Spotlight has a lot more details in their story, on a lease that expires next year and is up for annual renewal through 2040.

But it sounds like San Jose and the Sharks should be able to work it out.
