JACKSONVILLE – The Sharks are home for the second week in a row and set to host the Arizona Rattlers on Saturday, April 23rd. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Sea Best Field in the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

The Sharks look to rebound from last week’s late fourth quarter turnover and loss to the Orlando Predators 63-56. Saturday's game will be the first of two games that Jacksonville (1-2) will have to see the undefeated Arizona squad (3-0).  The Rattlers seem to be the best team in the League and come into the game with the number one offense and defense in the league. The Rattlers will be a formidable test for the Sharks, allowing Jacksonville the opportunity to see how good they are this early in the season.

Theme Night: Our first ever British Invasion Night will create a smashing evening filled with the sights and sounds of the legendary British Rock Era.  Additionally, the Beatlemaniax – a Tribute to the Beatles, who started the British Invasion in 1964 will perform throughout the evening.
