Harlem Globetrotters

The world famous Harlem Globetrotters, featuring some of the most electrifying athletes on the planet, return to Ford Arena on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 7 p.m. during their 91st anniversary world tour.

New this season, for the first time ever, the Globetrotters will debut basketball’s first 4-point line. The 4-point line will be 30 feet from the basket, which is 6-foot, 3 inches beyond the top of the NBA’s current 3-point line.

During their 2017 World Tour, the famed team will feature a star-studded roster that includes Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard and Cheese Chisholm plus female stars TNT Lister and Ace Jackson.

Tickets start at $23.50 and are available at harlemglobetrotters.com, ticketmaster.com, the Ford Park box office, or by phone at (800) 745-3000.

The Southeast & Deep East Texas Chapter of the American Red Cross has joined forces with the Harlem Globetrotters as its official charity partner through the team’s Great Assist initiative to help people prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters big and small and in return, $10 of every ticket sold will be donated to the American Red Cross.

 

“We’re honored to join forces with the Harlem Globetrotters through our disaster response efforts, the Home Fire Campaign, Service to the Armed Forces and much more,” said Chester R. Jourdan, executive director, American Red Cross of Southeast & Deep East Texas. “The fun and interactive way the team engages with the community will help to build greater awareness around our mission and the critical need to help our service members, their families and our volunteers and to help people at risk for and impacted by disasters every day.”
