About The Harlem Globetrotters Fairfax Tickets

Started in Chicago

What not many people know about the now iconic exhibition basketball team is that it was originally formed in Chicago and not Harlem, New York. The history of the Globetrotters goes all the way back to 1926 when the team first stepped out on to the floor. At the time, the Savoy Ballroom used to feature a local basketball team known as the ‘Savoy Big Five.’ A dispute arising from the lineup led to the emergence of the ‘Trotters.’

Playing in Harlem

The Trotters originally started out as a group of basketball players who had all gone to school together. However, once they started drawing in large crowds due to their athleticism and comic routines, it was decided to take the show on the road. The name for the team was chosen as the ‘Harlem Globetrotters’ as at the time, Harlem had come to be synonymous with African-American culture. Strangely enough it was only in 1968 that the Trotters got to play their first ‘home game’ in Harlem, NY. But you don’t have to wait that long to catch some of the most acrobatic and skillful players put together a show for you.
