Today, the Jacksonville Sharks announced the team will continue the tradition of offering a fan bus to Orlando. For the game on Saturday, Aug. 6, the Sharks will provide transportation to and from the conference semifinal game against the Orlando Predators, with kickoff set for 7 p.m. ET.
Seats on the bus will cost $95 for season ticket holders and Shark Nation members, and $105 for non-season ticket holders and non-members. For those who purchase or renew season tickets for 2017 before Wednesday, Aug. 3, fans may utilize their “2017 Experience” to receive the appropriate discount. There are three different membership levels and payment options available.
The price includes a seat on the bus, transportation to and from the game, and a ticket at Amway Center in the lower bowl behind Jacksonville’s bench. The Sharks will also provide food from Firehouse Subs and soft drinks and water courtesy of Coca-Cola®. Fans are allowed to bring their own small, soft-sided cooler with beverages of their choice, but glass containers are prohibited.
The bus will depart the day of the game at 3:30 p.m. ET, leaving from the South end of the Avenues Mall parking lot next to Buca Di Beppo. The address is 10334 Southside Boulevard in Jacksonville. The bus will begin its return trip shortly after the end of the game.
Fans who plan to attend the game, but who will not be on the bus, are encouraged to purchase seats in Sections 111, 112, or 113 and wear red to show your Shark pride behind the team’s bench.
