SHARKS VS PREDATORS - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

06/17/2016 9:22 AM -

JACKSONVILLE - The Sharks return to Jacksonville Saturday, June 18, as we host the Orlando Predators for Halloween in June. Kickoff at Sea Best Field in the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is set for 7:00 p.m.

 

The Shark’s look to keep the momentum going after last week’s blowout win over the Tampa Bay Storm. Jacksonville (5-5) looks to make it their second win in a row against the Predators (9-2) as they defeated Orlando at the Amway Center 59-56 three weeks ago, handing Orlando their only home loss of the 2016 season. Orlando won the first meeting in Jacksonville 63-56 on a last second touchdown back on April 23.

 

Whether you are a longtime Season Ticket Holder or about to head to your first Sharks game, please see below for a rundown of what to expect at the Shark Tank Saturday night.

 

Halloween in June

 

Come dressed in your favorite costume, but please keep it family friendly. Sharks fans have enjoyed this theme night year after year and we enjoy seeing how creative our fans can be. However, due to the recent tragedies in Orlando, we are asking all Sharks’ fans to dress appropriately for this theme night. Don’t worry, our friends at the Scream Park will have plenty of spooky surprises in store.

 

Attack Dance Team’s 7th Annual Swimsuit Calendar

 

The Attack’s calendars are now here and will be sold throughout the game for only $10.  Five-dollars of every calendar will go to The OneOrlando Fund to benefit the victims of the Orlando tragedy.

 

The Scream Park

 

The theme of this year’s Haunted House is one of everyone’s favorites - Clowns!  Make sure you make it up to the main concourse behind the elevator and see if these clowns will make you laugh or cry!  If you are too afraid, they may just be walking around and you can visit them that way - if you dare!

 

Suite/Duval Street Entrance

 

This entrance will be open for ALL Sharks season tickets holders for the remainder of the season.

 

New Noise Policy

 

We are bringing the rowdiness back to the Tank!  The Sharks have recently revised their noise policy which now allows cowbells (8” in height 6” in width max) and Sharks Horns for the remainder of the season.  Don’t like the noise?  There will also be new noise maker free sections.  To request information on these new sections, call the Sharks Ticket Office 904-621-0700 or contact steve@jaxsharks.com.  We will continue with the policy of fans NOT being able to bring large buckets or aerosol air horns into the arena.

 

Halftime

 

At halftime of game, the Scream Park will present the fire performing group, the Dark Circus. 

 

 

SharkFest

 

SharkFest, our pre-game block party held outside the arena, is back and better than ever this season! SharkFest begins at 5:00 p.m. tonight. Many of our corporate partners will be set up at SharkFest as well, so be sure to stop by their displays and check out everything they have to offer!
