The San Jose Sharks, founded in 1991, are a member of the Pacific Division of the National Hockey League’s Western Division. Known by locals as ‘The Shark Tank’, the SAP Center at San Jose has been the team’s home since 1993. The Sharks community is extremely inclusive and active among the youth, with programs like The Sharks Foundation, Little Sharks and Reading is Cool. Additionally, the hockey club engages with their broader fanbase in countless ways, including social media, the weekly newsletter and Sharks365. Remote Sharks supporters, unable to benefit from the immediate fan opportunities, must use FanWide as it connects Sharks fans through events like watch parties and fan club meet-ups.
