Ownership of Seat Locations
The San Jose Barracuda own and control all rights to seat locations for Barracuda home games. Purchasers of any Barracuda tickets obtain a license, in the form of a ticket, to use the seat location designated by the ticket. This license is granted on a game-by-game basis and is subject to all rules, regulations and policies relating to tickets as established by the San Jose Barracuda, SAP Center Management and the American Hockey League.
Season Ticket Holder of Record
Purchasers of season tickets and partial plans are assigned an account, and this account is generally maintained in the name of the purchaser. In the case of a business account, the purchaser must provide the San Jose Barracuda with the contact person for the account. The name under which the account is maintained (account name) on the season ticket database is the "season ticket holder of record".
A corporate account should be listed as the Jones Company, attention John Smith, in contrast to a personal account at a company, which would be listed as John Smith, the Jones Company. The season ticket holder is generally the person who pays for the tickets.
In the event a third party payment is accepted by the Barracuda, such acceptance shall not give the third party any renewal or post-season privileges, or cause or require the Barracuda to change the account name. The Barracuda will treat the account holder as the purchaser of season tickets in such circumstances, including for the purposes of season ticket renewal. Any excess funds or overpayment will be refunded only to the season ticket holder of record. The San Jose Barracuda reserve the right to make the final determination in the event of any dispute concerning who is the account holder or season ticket holder of record.
Account names may not be changed and seats may not be transferred from one account to another. The San Jose Barracuda allow for an account to be changed in name if the account holder emails in with the request. If they want the seats to be split they can do that, but the new account goes back to a tenure of 0.
Go to Window #10 for all season ticket related issues on Barracuda game dates such as lost tickets and physically impaired seat exchanges. Window #10 is near Will Call, next to the South Entrance, on the corner of Autumn and Santa Clara St. Window #10 opens 2 hours prior to Barracuda games and closes at the end of the first intermission.
Tickets may only be exchanged for physically impaired (WCA) seats for the date shown on the ticket at Window #10 on the day of the game starting two hours prior to game time. No other upgrades on Full Season tickets or mini plantickets are allowed. All physically impaired seat exchanges are subject to availability.

Season Ticket Members with prepaid parking passes should have their parking pass ready and available upon entering any SAP Center parking lots. There are no more parking placards, so Season Ticket Members can show the pass through the mobile app. Parking lots at SAP Center open two and one-half hours prior to game time. All Season Ticket Members have the option of prepaying for their parking on a season basis, therefore guaranteeing them a parking space in the SAP Center lots. As a result, it may be necessary to divert non-prepaid vehicles to other parking facilities in the area. Your cooperation with San Jose Police Officers and parking lot attendants is appreciated. In addition, for emergency purposes, please do not park in the fire lane or in non-designated locations at any time. Vehicles that are parked illegally are subject to towing. Prepaid parking privileges may be revoked if misused. There is no tailgating allowed. San Jose City Ordinance prohibits open alcoholic beverages in the parking lots.
In accordance with San Jose City Ordinances, SAP Center is a smoke-free building. Smoking is prohibited in the building including restrooms, The Club, The Grill and Citrix Suites. Anyone wishing to smoke will be able to step outside the designated exits during the games and re-enter SAP Center with his/her Barracuda ticket.

Camera equipment must be unobtrusive, not block sight lines of other guests and not restrict the free movement of guests throughout the seating areas. No video or audio recorders are allowed.
No bottles, cans or alcoholic beverages may be brought into the building; all persons and packages are subject to inspection.

The Barracuda want to provide you with the highest quality entertainment experience at SAP Center. We encourage enthusiasm but discourage bad language and any behavior which makes others uncomfortable. We reserve the right to expel guests whose behavior seriously affects the ability of others to enjoy the game.
