The Sharks are in need of a new home.
The team announced on Thursday that they would vacate Qualcomm Stadium for the 2020-21 season to build their own stadium, which would be a move that would require the relocation of a significant amount of fans and the relocation from the San Jose Coliseum.
San Jose would then relocate the team to SAP Center in San Jose, California.
The Sharks’ ownership is in talks with a number of other cities and could make another move in the near future.
They’ve been in discussions with the city of Los Angeles for years, and there is an agreement to move the team there, but the deal has yet to be finalized.
The Sharks would have to move their entire fan base to Los Angeles in order to build the stadium.
They would have about 1.3 million seats.
They’d have to pay out $6 million in rent per season and would have a $150 million stadium tax to build.
It’s unlikely that the Sharks will move, but it could be a possibility if they are unable to do it with San Jose.
Athletics commissioner Bud Selig recently said that the team is looking at all options, and he said that San Jose could be the most logical home for the team.
The San Jose Mercury News reported that the arena could be built in a couple of different locations.
It could be located at the San Diego Convention Center or at the Qualcomm Stadium site.
It also could be at a new stadium in the Bay Area, although it’s unclear if that’s what the team will do.
“We’re exploring all options for the future, including the possibility of building a new facility in San Diego,” Selig said in January.
Selig also said that he’d like to see the team move to a bigger venue, so it wouldn’t be like a new team building a home for a new city.
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said last week that he was open to the idea of moving the team, but he has yet received an offer from the team or the city.
He also said there’s no timetable for when the team might move.
