The Sharks hold both Digicel titles from the 2014/15 season—the Pro League and Pro Bowl gongs—and, as a result, their rival tonight will be the second placed team in the league.

Both teams are active in the CONCACAF Champions League at present. The Pro League competition is due to officially kick off on Friday September 25.
