The legendary Harlem Globetrotters are set to return to Gainbridge Fieldhouse this weekend as part of their 2024 world tour.  

Taking the stage at the Pacers’ home court for two games on Jan. 14 at 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., the Harlem Globetrotters aim to bring a new twist on their game with “an unforgettable blend of dribbling, spinning and dunking to the court” as they face off against the Washington Generals, according to a news release.  

Since 1926, the Harlem Globetrotters have been widely considered “the world’s basketball team,” touring more than 400 cities in more than 25 countries and dazzling fans and families with mind-blowing trick-shots, expert ball-handling and big laughs — and the 2024 tour aims to be even better.  

Complete with “unprecedented basketball innovations” and “unrivaled fan entertainment,” including pre-game offerings with the Magic Pass, post-game access and in-game fan interactions, the game promises lots of family fun.  

New this year, the Harlem Globetrotters are introducing the fan-filled Halftime Skills Showcase where guests might find themselves mid-court.  

The Globetrotters are also partnering with Spalding this year. Fans now have the opportunity to take home an official Spalding Harlem Globetrotters basketball or the newly designed Harlem Globetrotters Marble Series ball on game day. 

Tickets for the Harlem Globetrotters begin at $43 and are available to purchase at ticketmaster.com and at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse Box Office. For more information visit, harlemglobetrotters.com.
