After the cheer competition is over, the staff will once again have to quickly transition the arena overnight, this time into a basketball court. The Harlem Globetrotters, one of the most iconic basketball teams in the world, will be coming to town for two shows on March 19th at 11AM and 4PM. Fans of all ages will be treated to an unforgettable display of basketball skills, acrobatics, and hilarious antics.
With only six hours to build the basketball court piece by piece, the Chesapeake Arena operations crew has their work cut out for them. “Our team has done this many times before, and we're always up for the challenge. Putting down a basketball court in a matter of hours is a testament to our hardworking staff and their dedication to providing a seamless experience for all our guests. We take pride in our ability to quickly transform the arena and ensure that every event is a success,” said William Wilson, Assistant General Manager.
It will be all hands on deck to make sure the team is ready and the venue is in tip-top shape to open doors on time for the second Harlem Globetrotters show. With only 1 hour from the end of the 11AM show to the doors open for the next showing, the team must clean the entire concourse, bathrooms, and seating areas to make sure the venue is ready for guests.
