For over 60 years, Tech CU has been dedicated to our community. We are now partnering with two other Bay Area icons, the San Jose Sharks and the San Jose Barracuda, to support this wonderful area we call home through sport teams and venues that bring us together.
Tech CU is proud to play a part in the expansion of Sharks Ice at San Jose, a 5-rink public skating facility that will add dimension to quality of life in our community. As the naming rights partner for Tech CU Arena, the crown jewel of a 200,000 square foot expansion of the facility, we look forward to welcoming the Barracuda to their new home and to seeing members of our community enjoying world-class training and recreational facilities for on-ice sports and fun.
At Tech CU, we are dedicated to you, our members, and the community we serve. We constantly seek ways to grow with you and to welcome new members. Since the geography of the Sharks and Barracuda overlap with that of Tech CU, we look forward to seeing many members at Tech CU Arena while also reaching out to new, prospective members in the fan community.
Every great organization evolves, and we have grown from a savings and loan institution founded by employees at Fairchild Semiconductor into a full-service financial institution offering a wide array of products and services to our members. We remain actively engaged in our community through many local organizations focused on supporting quality of life in the area and we are proud to now add the partnership with the Sharks and Barracuda.

When does the partnership start?
The official start date was July 1, 2022. It is a 10-year agreement that includes naming rights on Tech CU Arena (the home of the Barracuda), signage in both Tech CU Arena and SAP Center, and partnership in several community initiatives.
Why partner with the Sharks and Barracuda?
Because they represent a city in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Sharks and Barracuda have many tech workers in their fan base and this overlaps with Tech CU’s membership base. Through our partnership, we will have many opportunities to reach out to our members while also letting potential members know about the products and services we offer.
The Sharks and Barracuda are also deeply involved in community activities. Tech CU shares many focus areas including STEAM education, cancer support, holiday giving, financial literacy, and student assistance. Through Tech CU’s Community Partnership Program, we look forward to combining forces with The Sharks Foundation and Cuda Cares to continue our heritage of giving back to our community.
