Harlem Globetrotters will return to the United Kingdom as part
of their 2003 European Tour after an eight year absence. The six-week
tour will tip-off on April 12 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and
continues through the Netherlands, France, Switzerland and Spain.
hard to believe that the last time the Globetrotters were in the
United Kingdom was 1995, when they took on Kareem Abdul-Jabar’s
All-Star Team. Not a week passes when we don’t get an email
or phone call asking us when the Globetrotters will return to
the UK,” stated Harlem Globetrotters Owner and Chairman
Mannie Jackson. “We always have an enthusiastic response
whenever we come to Europe. However, this trip is shaping up as
extra special for the team.”
Globetrotters, who were inducted into the Naismith Basketball
Hall of Fame in September, are currently on their Burger King
sponsored 2003 North American exhibition tour with games in more
than 200 cities through April of 2003. The team was named the
most liked and most popular sports team by the 2002 Q ratings.
The Globetrotters recently marked their 21,000th victory when
they played in Kalamazoo, Mich.
