    free jacks take on MIAMI SHARKS

    Sat April 6, 2024

    New kids to the MLR Miami Sharks ship up to Boston on April 6th, making their first ever appearance at Veterans Memorial Stadium to take on the Free Jacks.  

    2024 is Miami Sharks inaugural season and they will have a point to prove with a strong international roster as they head up the Eastern Seaboard to Fort Quincy. Not all of the Sharks are new to the MLR and Free Jacks Fans are likely to see the return of Stan Van Den Hoven, this time wearing pink after transferring to Miami from the Free Jacks earlier in the year. 

    Head Coach of Miami José Pellicena will be looking to make an impact with the Sharks and his first signing, Tomás Cubelli, legendary Argentina Puma, will share the same sentiment. This Argentinian influenced team is likely to bring physicality and pace to New England. Prepare for a hard hitting action packed game.

    Frosé Festival

    Ride like the wind into the Free Jacks Frosé Fest featuring 2 delicious frosé slushies. Stormalong Cider and Vitamin Sea Brewing will also be bringing a variety of beers and ciders to choose from. 

    Participants will receive 10 beer and cider tickets and 4 Frosé tickets. 

    The ambiance will be further enhanced by the melodies and breezy vocals of Buoys of Summer, as we transport you to a world of vintage sophistication. Smooth sailing ahead! Come relax, work on your tan, and enjoy friendship and frosty amazingness.
