We have been going to Sharks games for many years, and love the many things about SAP stadium and the Sharks. However, I forgot how bad the stadium design is when we sat in the upper section (202) last Saturday. People are constantly complaining about...More

I attended the U.S. Figure Skating Championships here in January 2018. My seat changed depending on the event, but even up in row 20, I could see the action very well and not feel that high up. The arena seems clean, modern, and well-maintained. Good...More

For all business travelers visiting silicon valley; ask your contacts to get you a seat (or more) for one of the Sharks games, great entertainment and good atmosphere in the Shark Tank!

I've been to SAP Center for concerts, Shark games and other pavilion events. No matter where I sit, the view is great. When I attended the Stanley Cup, the only tickets I could afford were rather high up. I was surprised to find that I...More

You can always take the VTA light-rail to avoid parking (and that means you can have a few beers/drinks). You can get off and either the San Fernando or San Jose Diridon Station and it is a really short walk.

Although I have attended concerts here, I usually go for hockey. I think you could call the box office and ask if a concert would have any pre or post concert events or parties.
