Basketball champions Harlem Globetrotters are set to stopover at Expo 2020 Dubai for two games on October 29 and 30.

In partnership with the USA pavilion, the group Harlem Globetrotters will be involved in a range of activities.

They will be available for autograph sessions and are expected to engage in activities with junior players, among other interactions.

Rising from backwoods obscurity during the Great Depression, the Harlem Globetrotters slam-dunked their way to become the finest basketball team in the country and, by the early 1950s, the most popular sports franchise in the world.
