Harlem Globetrotters World Tour coming to Tampa in 2023

I can already hear the iconic whistling tune as a player effortlessly spins a basketball on their index finger. The Harlem Globetrotters put on a basketball performance unlike any other, and they’re making a stop in Tampa during their global tour.

The Harlem Globetrotters 2023 World Tour presented by Jersey Mike’s Subs arrives at the Yuengling Center on April 23. Your favorite Globetrotter stars are bringing out their amazing basketball skills, and outrageous athleticism for a non-stop high-octane good time. The Globetrotters go head-to-head against the Washington Generals who will stop at nothing to try and defeat the world’s winningest team.

Featured players include the 3-point sharpshooter TNT Lister, the dunk stylist Bulldog Mack, and the aerial sensation Hammer Harrison.


“From trick shots to long shots to how-did-they-do-that shots, get ready for the Harlem Globetrotters to put up…basketball shots!” writes the organization in a release. Stay on the lookout as the Globetrotters are taking even more incredible shots from around the arena – because shooters shoot. Their stars will be on fire with the Globetrotters original 4-points shot. You can count on the Great Assist by the Trotters. Jaw-dropping ball handling, fastest-dribbling, crazy crossovers and amazing basketball skills promise four quarters of fantastical basketball.

Our favorite Globetrotters event is back: The Dunk Contest. It’s poetry in motion as these super athletes soar above the rim and perform the most creative slams you’ve ever witnessed live.

Tickets for the event are available online.


This isn’t the only sports spectacular touring through Tampa. The Savannah Bananas are coming to town to put on the most entertaining baseball game around this spring.
