The Jacksonville Sharks proudly announce season tickets for the 2011 season are now available. Ticket packages, starting at just $45, will include all nine games for the 2011 season and a free commemorative football ($30 value) for those who purchase or renew their season tickets by August 31.*
The Jacksonville Sharks, currently fourth in the league in attendance, are averaging nearly 11,000 fans at each home game this season. With a strong fan base, one would think prices would be going up for 2011. Steve Curran, a partner and the VP of Ticketing said, We are very excited about being able to maintain our price levels for season ticket holders. We promised them a great product at affordable prices and they responded by purchasing over 4,500 season tickets in 2010. We expect to be over 7,500 season tickets for the 2011 season.
Season ticket holders receive benefits including huge savings over single game tickets and no ticketing convenience fees. They will also receive the Sharks Card, which allows for discounts and special offers at local businesses in the Jacksonville area. Season ticket holders purchasing or renewing their seats in full or electing the EZ-Payment Plan by August 31st qualify to receive one free 2011 commemorative football for every two paid seats.* The Sharks EZ-Payment Plan enables fans to split their purchase into equal monthly payments. Shark Pit and Arena Club ticket holders will also receive a commemorative Sharks lanyard and ticket sleeve. In addition Shark Pit season ticket holders receive a free season parking pass.
The experience for the value our fans receive with the Arena Football League and the Sharks is unparalleled in Jacksonville. With all the financial hardships families are going through at this time, the Sharks are simply the best affordable family entertainment that you can experience. We have proven that you can put on a great show without breaking the bank and being a Season Ticket Holder is once again attainable for people, stated Managing Partner Jeff Bouchy.
2010 season ticket holders will have the first right of refusal on their current seats for 2011, but there are still seats available to reserve. To reserve your seats, or for more information, contact a ticket representative at 904.621.0700 or visit jaxsharks.com.
