AMERICAN DREAM

You’ve seen them perform ball tricks, spins on the court and slam dunks of the ball. And now, for 10 days in August, The Harlem Globetrotters will bring their talents exclusively to New Jersey, as they debut a residency at American Dream.

The first-ever residency in sports history will include 16 lives games against their rival Washington Generals, plus tons of on-court activities for the whole family.

With a pre-game Magic Pass you and the kids can get on the court 90 minutes prior to game time to shoot some hoops and ask for player autographs. The experience lasts 30 minutes. The Globetrotter Kids Skill Clinic lets kids train just like a Globetrotter: they’ll run drills, learn new tricks and take shots at the basket. They’ll get a chance to be part of the famous Magic Circle.  During the post-game 5th Quarter, there’s another chance for a player meet-and-greet. Every single fan is invited down to the court to get an autograph.

There will also be merch, like Harlem Globetrotters branded T-shirts, basketballs, sweatshirts, programs, novelties and accessories.

This isn’t the first time sports have been center court at American Dream. The complex hosted the USA Curling National Championships in the winter and the National Basketball Player Association’s The Throne – High School Basketball National Championship in March. There are several more athletic competitions and events that will be announced soon.

The Harlem Globetrotters Experience runs from Friday, August 16, through Sunday, August 25, at American Dream, 1 American Dream Way, East Rutherford. Special events and activities will be announced in the coming weeks.
