Ahead of their appearance in Dubai, the Harlem Globetrotters said, ‘We cannot wait to bring our special brand of family entertainment to the Expo 2020 site. Basketball is a game that unites all players and all fans, and Expo 2020’s emphasis on openness, inclusivity, connectivity and opportunities for all are perfectly aligned with those of the Harlem Globetrotters.’

The games, it was added, will fire the imaginations of all our spectators – and we’re especially excited to bring smiles to the faces of our younger fans. So, don’t leave the kids at home for this one.
