SHARKS PLAYOFF TICKETS NOW ON SALE

07/16/2012 3:27 PM - JACKSONVILLE – The ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks announced Monday that tickets for a first-round home playoff game are now on sale. Should the Sharks clinch their third consecutive South Division title this weekend, the team would begin its postseason run at 7:00 pm. on Saturday, July 28 on Sea Best Field at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

Fans wishing to purchase playoff tickets may do so by calling the Sharks’ ticket office at (904) 621-0700 during normal business hours. A great benefit of being a Sharks season ticket holder is the ability to purchase playoff tickets at their respective season ticket price. In addition, current season ticket holders will have their individual seats reserved until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, meaning that they will be able to purchase playoff tickets in their exact seats until that date and time.

In the event that the Sharks do not host a playoff game this season, monies for all tickets purchased for a game that does not take place in Jacksonville may be applied towards either 2013 tickets or official Sharks merchandise.

In order to clinch the division and secure a home playoff game, the Sharks must beat the Pittsburgh Power in the teams’ upcoming contest on Friday, July 20 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. Should the Sharks win that game, Jacksonville would host the winner of this week’s game between the New Orleans VooDoo and Georgia Force in the opening round of the playoffs. Friday’s game will air live on NFL Network.

If the Sharks lose in Pittsburgh, the team would fall to the No. 3 seed in the American Conference and would not host a home playoff game in the first round. In that scenario, the team would travel to face the winner of the New Orleans-Georgia game. Please see below for a full rundown of American Conference playoff scenarios heading into Week 20.
