East Rutherford NJ, this summer, the world-renowned Harlem Globetrotters are making a splash at the American Dream entertainment complex with a 10-day residency, marking the first-ever sports residency at the venue. From Friday, August 16, through Sunday, August 25, fans can immerse themselves in the thrilling Harlem Globetrotters Experience, featuring a series of exciting events and activities.

A Lineup of Unforgettable Events

The residency will include 16 exhilarating games against the Globetrotters’ historic rivals, the Washington Generals. But that’s just the beginning. The event promises a host of fan engagement activities, exclusive merchandise giveaways, and other programs celebrating the Globetrotters’ rich legacy.

Keith Dawkins, President of the Harlem Globetrotters and Herschend Entertainment Studios, shared his enthusiasm: “The Harlem Globetrotters have a long and storied history of ‘firsts’ in its almost 100 years of existence and we continue that tradition by partnering with American Dream. This residency, and its many commercial extensions, represents another way to reimagine the experience we bring to our millions of fans. We are excited about its potential to be replicated around the world.”

Family-Friendly Offerings

The Globetrotters have planned a variety of activities perfect for kids and families:

  • Globetrotter Kids Skill Clinic: Young basketball enthusiasts can train like the Globetrotters, running drills, learning tricks, and participating in the famous Magic Circle warmup routine.
  • Pre-Game Magic Pass: Families can join the Globetrotters and the Generals on the court before the game to shoot hoops, get autographs, and snap photos with the players.
  • Globetrotter “5th Quarter” Meet-and-Greet: Fans are invited down to the court for 30 minutes post-game to get autographs from their favorite Globetrotter players.
  • Exclusive Merchandise: Attendees can purchase a range of Globetrotters-branded items, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, basketballs, programs, and more.

A Hub for Major Sports Events

American Dream continues to solidify its status as a premier destination for major athletic events. This year alone, the complex has hosted the USA Curling National Championships and “The Throne,” a national high school basketball tournament by the National Basketball Players Association. More high-profile events are expected to be announced soon.

Bryan Gaus, Senior Vice President and General Manager of American Dream, expressed his excitement: “The Harlem Globetrotters, just like American Dream, embody community, entertainment, and fun, making us the perfect partners for this groundbreaking residency. Our property continues to set the standard as a unique sports and events destination while also complementing MetLife Stadium’s extensive list of events next door.
