SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Welcome to the SAP Center at San Jose.
Representatives from both SAP, a software company, and the San Jose Sharks were on hand for the official renaming of the building that hosts the NHL team.
SAP also sponsored the men's tennis tournament in San Jose that moved out of the country following its last event in February.
Previously known as HP Pavilion, and nicknamed the Shark Tank for his main residents, SAP bought out the final two years and added three more years to its commitment, with a five-year option.
SAP representatives promised an enhanced fan experience at hockey games, though it's not yet clear how that will work.
