Harlem Globetrotters let fans determine rules of the game in Oklahoma City on Feb. 9
Known as innovators of the game of basketball for decades, the world famous Harlem Globetrotters are again introducing something unparalleled in the history of sports and family entertainment, taking kid participation and fun to a whole new level when the Globetrotters come to Chesapeake Energy Arena at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Feb. 9.
For the first time ever, during the Globetrotters’ 2013 “You Write the Rules” World Tour, your family’s smiles will begin before you even get to the show. Fans will decide the rules for the game that could affect the final outcome. This could be anything from playing with two basketballs at once, to getting double the points for each basket made.
Go online with your kids to harlemglobetrotters.com to vote for which ground-breaking rule you want to see implemented in the game. Then, get your tickets, and see the winning rules in live action at the Globetrotters’ world championship game.
Tickets, starting at $20, are on sale now at harlemglobetrotters.com, ticketmaster.com, the Chesapeake Energy Arena box office, or by phone at 800-745-3000. Information on group and scout tickets can also be found at harlem
Before the game, take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience with your family where you get to actually spend time on the court with the Globetrotters one-on-one — shooting, trying out ball tricks, autographs and photos. The unique 30-minute pre-show, “Magic Pass,” will create memories of a lifetime. After virtually every game, Globetrotter stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.
This year's Globetrotters roster features stars such as Special K Daley and Flight Time Lang. They will join many other fan favorites, including 7-foot-8 Tiny Sturgess (the Guinness World Record holder as the World’s Tallest Professional Basketball Player), 5-foot-2 Too Tall Hall (the shortest Globetrotter ever), and female star T-Time Brawner.
The North American leg of the 2013 “You Write the Rules” World Tour will tip off on Dec. 26 and will run through April 2013. The team will play more than 270 games in nearly 240 cities in 45 states and nine Canadian provinces.
