What a Magical Night For Kids Of All Ages
The Harlem Globetrotters brought their special Magic to the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena on Friday Night and Alethia Jenkins was in Jacksonville, Florida with My9oh4 keeping our fans #LockedIN.
Since 1926 when Abe Saperstein founded the team, the Globetrotters have entertained more than 146 million fans in 123 countries and territories worldwide – introducing many to the sport of basketball – pioneers in popularizing the slam dunk, fast break, the forward and point guard positions, and the figure-eight weave.
The Globetrotters’ show features even more amazing basketball skills and wizardry, with a continued focus on family entertainment. For their 2017 tour, basketball’s greatest innovators will debut basketball’s first-ever 4-point line, a move that comes six years after the team unveiled the first 4-point shot in the history of the sport.
Off the court, the organization will continue to evolve the company beyond its vibrant live event business by increasing alliances with global partners, developing a full line of licensed products, executing a multi-media strategy to gain worldwide saliency and continuing the brand’s legacy of deep social involvement in local communities.
