JACKSONVILLE – The Jacksonville Sharks announced Friday that the team is set to launch two groups of new luxury field suites, known as “The Cove” and “The Reef,” for the 2016 season. Placed along the wall in either end zone, these suites aim to provide an all-encompassing experience, combining a unique view of the game with prominent advertising opportunities.

“We are thrilled to debut “The Cove” and “The Reef” at Saturday’s game,” Sharks operating manager Jeff Bouchy said. “These suites will provide Jacksonville businesses with an incredibly entertaining atmosphere and outstanding avenues to advertise, a potent combination never seen before in this city.”

Located in Sections 118 and 119, “The Cove” consists of two suites, each holding between 20 and 25 people. “The Reef” is located in the opposite end zone in Sections 107-110, and consists of eight suites that each hold between 10 and 14 people. Additionally, an unlimited buffet of food, beer and wine is included in “The Reef.”

“The Cove” and “The Reef” will soft-launch on Saturday night, as the Sharks host the Cleveland Gladiators in a nationally televised contest at 7:00. The suites will then return for the start of the 2016 season.
