Durban - Pat Lambie's Racing 92 will play against the Sharks in what will serve as a Super Rugby pre-season friendly for the Durbanites on February 3.
The match will be played in Hong Kong at the Aberdeen Sports Ground.
Lambie has been at the French club since November after he left the Sharks following a series of head knocks that had threatened to end his career.
Schooled at Michaelhouse in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands and born in Durban, Lambie had been involved at the Sharks since 2009 and was captain of the franchise at the time of his departure this year.
Since joining Racing, Lambie has rediscovered some of his old form and has been particularly impressive in the goal-kicking department.
The Sharks confirmed the pre-season fixture on their Twitter page on Monday.
It will be the first time that the Sharks have played in Hong Kong.
