The Harlem Globetrotters are returning to the area in March when the 2014 “Fans Rule” World Tour comes to Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee on Tuesday, March 4.

The game starts at 7 p.m. and online voting is open at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule, where fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see at the Silver Spurs Arena.

The Globetrotters were the first organization in sports and entertainment to let fans vote on rules when the team introduced the concept last year. Because the fan response was so overwhelming, the team is doing it again – but with a twist.

The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules: Hot Hand Jersey where both teams will have a Hot Hand Jersey they can pass among each other.

The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets. Make or Miss, the quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded. There’s also a Trick Shot Challenge where three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.

With a roster showcasing stars such as Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, Hi-Lite Bruton and Dizzy Grant – plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind show features mesmerizing ball handling, an assortment of trick shots, high-flying dunks and precise timing all with an array of comedy. After virtually every game, Globetrotter stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.

Tickets prices are $60, $35, $27, $20 and are now available at harlemglobetrotters.com, www.ticketmaster.com, the Silver Spurs Arena box office or by phone at 800-745-3000.
