The grand relaunch of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort is next month and what would the wide world of sports be without some globetrotters?
The Disney sports complex will, in fact, have the most famous globetrotters of them all – the renowned Harlem Globetrotters. The zany band of basketball tricksters will help kick off the Feb. 25 relaunch of the complex, which will involve re-theming the 220-acre complex with the signature elements of ESPN, leaving athletes, coaches and fans feeling as if they’ve reached the big time.
The Globetrotters will put on a very special performance at the Milk House in the complex at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at all ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.com, and range from $30 to $50. As part of the complex relaunch festivities, everyone in attendance at the game will receive a one-of-a-kind ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex commemorative t-shirt.
The game will be more than just a game as ESPN’s popular radio duo Mike & Mike will serve as honorary coaches. And several high-profile pro athletes and other well-known ESPN on-air personalities are expected to be in attendance and available for autographs. Then, of course, there’s unique brand of basketball entertainment that only the Globetrotters can deliver.
Hey, maybe you’ll be the one who gets doused with the fake bucket of water that really turns out to be confetti.
Does anybody know which pro athletes will be appearing at this event and whether or not they will be signing your own items or if the item will be provided?
