07/28/2012 7:54 AM - The ArenaBowl XXIV Champion Jacksonville Sharks are back in the playoffs again, and for the third straight year, the postseason begins right here on Sea Best Field! The South Division champion Sharks host the division rival Georgia Force in a game that will kick off at 7:00. Georgia had the upper hand in both regular-season meetings, but the Sharks come in as winners of three consecutive games. A dominant Jacksonville defense allowed fewer than 40 points in each of those three wins.
Fans, please note that due to an anticipated large walk-up crowd, lines at the ticket windows and will call are expected to be longer than usual. We suggest that you pick up or purchase your tickets as early in the day as possible, even if that means coming downtown, going elsewhere for a few hours and then returning when SharkFest is in full swing and gates are open. Doing so will give you the best chance to avoid the lines and make your gameday experience that much better!
