JACKSONVILLE - The Sharks return to Jacksonville from their two-week west coast trip as we host the Los Angeles KISS on July 23 for Christmas in July. Kickoff at Sea Best Field in the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena is set for 7:00 p.m.


The Sharks look to snap a four-game losing streak in what will be the second and final meeting with the KISS for the 2016 regular season. Jacksonville (5-9) looks to even the series with a win on Saturday night. Back in Week 1, a new Sharks team fell to the KISS at Honda Center in a 64-39 loss.
