SHARKS VS. SOUL - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

06/03/2016 11:07 AM -

JACKSONVILLE - The Sharks return to Jacksonville Saturday, June 4, as we host the Philadelphia Soul for Superhero Night. Kickoff at Sea Best Field in the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is set for 7:00 p.m. 

 

The Sharks hope to continue their momentum after their big win last week in Orlando. Jacksonville is 4-4 on the season and this game will be crucial to close the gap on the Conference leading Philadelphia Soul. 

 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! 

 

Superhero Night

Batman, Wonder Woman and Iron Man will be in attendance as we put on Superhero Night. Come see the Superheroes at Sharkfest starting at 5pm and then we will move into the main lobby from 5:30 to 6:45. Make sure to come early and take a photo with Wonder Woman and her invisible plane!  Come dressed up as your favorite Superhero (or villain) as we battle for home field supremacy.

 

Education Appreciation

 For this week’s game we will recognize all teachers, administrators and school employees in light of education appreciation. This game’s ticket promotion includes a buy one get one free ticket deal for school employees.

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 [email protected].  We will continue with the policy of fans NOT being able to bring large buckets or aerosol air horns into the arena.
