The Harlem Globetrotters are again introducing something unparalleled in the history of sports -- taking kid participation and fun to a whole new level.
Area fans will get to experience it when the Globetrotters come to Quicken Loans Arena at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27.
For the first time ever, 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.
The team is calling it the "You Write the Rules" World Tour.
Go online with your kids to www.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 start at $20 and are on sale at www.theQarena.com, the Quicken Loans Arena box office, or by phone at (888) 894-9424 and at any one of 58 northern Ohio Discount Drug Mart stores. Information on group and scout tickets can also be found at http://theqarena.com/tickets/gro....
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 Hi-Lite Bruton, Dizzy Grant, Ant Atkinson, and female star Mighty Mitchell.
The North American leg of the "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.
