  • For over 60 years, Tech CU has been dedicated to the communities we serve. We are excited to be entering our second season as the Official Credit Union of the San Jose Sharks and the San Jose Barracuda, two icons of the Bay Area sports landscape.

    As part of our commitment to our shared home in the Bay Area, we are also excited to be in our second season as naming rights partner of the brand-new Tech CU Arena. Tech CU Arena is the home of the San Jose Barracuda, the Bay Area’s American Hockey League (AHL) team, while also supporting local hockey clubs. Designed with the community in mind, Tech CU Arena is enjoyed by thousands of visitors of all ages. This season will be no exception, as Tech CU Arena will host the AHL All-Star Classic on February 4-5, 2024!

    At Tech CU, we’re focused on you. We’re passionate about serving your needs, growing with you and welcoming new members.

    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.

    When did 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, partnership in several community initiatives, and exclusive benefits for our members.

    As a member, can I get access to tickets?

    Through our partnership with Sharks Sports & Entertainment, we offer our member ticket discounts to events and games at SAP Center and Tech CU Arena. These discounted tickets are subject to availability and can be accessed by logging into online banking or mobile banking.

    When will co-branded cards be available?

    The co-branded cards are now available! See here for more details.
