In-Game Auctions

At every Sharks home game the Foundation hosts an in-game auction at the Sharks Foundation Booth located outside Section 118 on the Concourse from when doors open until the end of the second intermission (approximately 15 min. after the second period ends). Items up for auction can range from autographed jerseys and framed photos, to game-used equipment and Sharks experiences. 

To join the in-game mobile bidding auctions, text "SHARKS" to 52182. First-time subscribers will need to input valid personal and credit card information and from there you will receive a text notification every game and be able to bid on any items from any location! Auctions close automatically and the highest bidders will receive a text message confirming they are the winner. Items can be picked-up at the Foundation booth same day before the 10-minute mark of the third period, or winners can contact to arrange pick-up on a later date. With each auction being mobile, bidders do not have to be present at the game to participate!

Auction Terms & Policies:

If you receive a winner's text and you do not pick-up your item at the game, you must contact within 72 hours to determine how your item will be secured with one of the following options:

1.) Let us know the next Sharks home game you are attending and the item can be picked up at the Foundation booth from when doors open up until the end of the second intermission. The game you would like to pick-up at must fall within 30 days from the purchase date. 

2.) Schedule an appointment on a non-event day, Monday-Friday, between 9 a.m. and 5:15 p.m. to pick-up the item at SAP Center. This option requires you to request a specific day and time and allow the Foundation at least 24 hours notice to confirm that your request works with the building schedule. If you do not receive confirmation, your request has not been scheduled - do not come to SAP Center without an appointment as you will be turned away by Security.

3.) If the item was not advertised as "cannot be shipped," you can request that we ship your item (US mailing addresses only). 

VERY IMPORTANT: We cannot store purchased items. Failure to contact the Foundation within 72 hours of purchasing the item, or failure to respond to Foundation messages to schedule item pick-up/delivery will result in loss of the item without a refund. If an item is not secured by the winner within 30 days from the purchase date, it will be donated back to the Sharks Foundation.
