The Original Harlem Globetrotters

HISTORY IN THE MAKING AS WASHINGTON GENERALS LOOK FOR LANDMARK VICTORY OVER HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS IN EUGENE ON FRIDAY, FEB. 20

(PHOENIX, Oct. 7, 2014) – The world famous Harlem Globetrotters, featuring some of the greatest athletes and entertainers on the planet, will bring their unrivaled family show to Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene on Friday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m., during the Harlem Globetrotters 2015 “Washington Generals’ Revenge” Tour. 

The Globetrotters will face a great challenge this year, as the infamous Washington Generals are more determined than ever to match the franchise’s historic last victory over the Globetrotters nearly a half century ago.  It has been five years since the Globetrotters and Generals have faced off, as the Generals have been searching far and wide for the best players to retool their roster and have been preparing for one thing: victory over the Globetrotters.

In addition to the highly-anticipated matchup on the court, the Globetrotters, known worldwide as the Ambassadors of Goodwill™, will honor a Harlem Globetrotters Hometown Hero at each of their 310-plus games in North America.  The team is searching for active, wounded or retired members of the military who have made their community proud with their brave service and exemplary character.  Fans can nominate a Harlem Globetrotters Hometown Hero at harlemglobetrotters.com.  The Globetrotters will also play a portion of each game with a camouflage basketball as a sign of respect to all who protect our freedom.

With a star-studded roster featuring Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, Firefly Fisher and Moose Weekes – plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu* – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment. With incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction, this must-see event is guaranteed to entertain the whole family. After the game, Globetrotter stars will sign autographs and take photos with fans.^

Tickets start at $21 and are now available at harlemglobetrotters.com, matthewknightarena.com, the Matthew Knight Arena box office, or by phone at 800-992-8499.  Information on group and scout tickets can also be found at harlemglobetrotters.com.
