The Harlem Globetrotters Richmond VA Tickets



Greet the trotters with your cheers at The Harlem Globetrotters Richmond game in this upcoming season.



The Harlem Globetrotters is a very rare brand of basketball. They are a team of exhibition basketball players. The Globetrotters were formed in the 1920s, though it is not clear exactly which year. Their origin lies in the Savoy Big Five, a basketball team that used to play exhibition matches before dance performances at the Savoy Ballroom so as to attract more people to the venue. In 1928, after a dispute regarding player selection, Tommy Brookins gathered a team named ‘The Globetrotters’ and led them on a tour of the Southern Illinois. Abe Saperstein, their owner and coach, later added the word ‘Harlem’ after the name of the city which was picked as their hometown for its African-American culture at that time. It was also used to give them an aura of mystery that usually surrounds an out-of-town team.

Since their formation, they have played over twenty thousand exhibition matches in more than 100 countries. Their winning streak is a mile long and they rarely loose. Their modus operandi in a match is that first they secure their winning position. Once that is done, they start playing tricks like juggling the ball and going for shots that seem more like stunts. So even if you don’t like basketball, The Harlem Globetrotters Richmond matches are a must-watch as The Harlem Globetrotters Richmond tickets will bring you comedy, sports and theater all in a very unique package.
