The team’s game at The Coliseum will showcase incredible ball-handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction.

The Globetrotters will face a revamped Generals team, which recently launched a more competitive profile by making an appearance in The Basketball Tournament over the summer. The tournament-tested team is looking to snap a 47-year losing streak against its world-famous rivals during the 2018 tour.

After the game, Globetrotter stars will sign autographs and take photos with fans. The team has twice played in The Coliseum – in 2010 and 2015, both times to packed houses.

Tickets start at $24 and can be purchased at harlemglobetrotters.com, ticketweb.com or The Coliseum box office on the UWG campus.
