Opened in 1993, SAP Center has been recognized as the biggest success story in the revitalization of downtown San Jose. SAP Center, also known as "The Tank," exemplifies the architectural excellence and technological innovation of the Silicon Valley and includes the latest in audio and video technology. The building has a glass pyramid entry and unique stainless steel fašade. Most noticeable is the high resolution LED center hung scoreboard -- one of the largest in North America and a full-color moving LED fascia display. The arena also is home to the San Jose Sports Hall of Fame with plaques of inductees displayed on the concourse. In addition to the Sharks, SAP Center hosts concerts, family shows, civic events and has been home to numerous college basketball games.
