The world-renowned Harlem Globetrotters are bringing their high-flying, fun-filled tour to Redding on Feb. 10 with a game at Enterprise High School.
Kevin Greene, the school’s athletic director, said Wednesday the game has been in the works for a few months, but the school and the team have recently finalized the details.
Perhaps the most famous basketball team of all time, the Globetrotters were formed in 1926 and have been touring through various lineups since. They’re no strangers to Redding, having played in the North State multiple times in the past two years, most recently at Shasta College.
“They approached me about two months ago and asked if we’d be interested in hosting at Enterprise,” Greene said. “I told them ‘I would love to.’ The Globetrotters are nothing but awesome.”
Stars on the current Globetrotters team include Big Easy Lofton, Moose Weekes, Bulldog Mack, Hammer Harrison, Hi-Lite Bruton and Beast Douglas.
Greene, who said he’s never seen the touring basketball circus, added “I guess I’ll see them in three weeks.”
Tickets are available now on the Globetrotters’ website with a link on the Redding event page – click here. Tickets are $34 for general admission, $26 each in the me-plus-3 packet of four and $153 for the ability to sit on the bench. An $18 magic pass is also available for a 30-minute pregame meet-and-greet.
A 30-minute autograph session will follow the game.
Enterprise’s Manatowa Gymnasium has a capacity of 1,734 seats and Greene said the deal is financially beneficial to the school.
“We’ll be allowed to use our concession stand,” he said. “I’m excited. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
