08/09/2013 7:20 PM -

JACKSONVILLE - On Saturday, August 10, the No. 1 seed Jacksonville Sharks will take to Sea Best Field with a spot in ArenaBowl XXVI on the line, as the Sharks host the No. 2 seed Philadelphia Soul in the American Conference Championship Game. Kickoff from the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is set for 7:00 p.m.

Division leaders throughout the season, the Sharks and Soul are the last two teams standing on this side of the league. The winner of Saturday's game will advance to ArenaBowl XXVI against either the Spokane Shock or the Arizona Rattlers, who square off in the National Conference Championship Game on Saturday. ArenaBowl XXVI will be played at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, August 17, with kickoff set for 1:00 p.m.

The Sharks and Soul met once earlier this season, as Jacksonville held off a late Philadelphia rally to emerge with a 55-53 victory back in Week 6. Jacksonville heads into this game having won each of its last three contests, including last Saturday's 69-62 victory over the Tampa Bay Storm in the first round of the playoffs.
