Fans Rule In 2014 - Fans Given The Power To Decide Which Rules Will Impact The Game

The world famous Harlem Globetrotters will take fan interaction to a new level when the 2014 "Fans Rule" World Tour comes to UK. Online voting is now open at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule, where all fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see.
 
The Globetrotters were the first organization in sports and entertainment to let fans vote on rules when the team introduced the concept last year.  Since the fan response was so overwhelming, the team is doing it again - but with a major twist.
 
The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules:
 
Hot Hand Jersey - 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. 
 
Trick Shot Challenge - Via 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 family show features mesmerizing ball handling, an assortment of trick shots, high-flying dunks and precise timing - all with an array of comedy guaranteed to entertain the young and the young at heart.  After virtually every game, Globetrotter stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.#

The Original Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating their 88th consecutive year, continuing a world famous tradition of ball handling wizardry, basketball artistry, and one-of-a-kind family entertainment that continues to thrill fans of all ages. Throughout their history, the Globetrotters have showcased their iconic talents in 122 countries and territories on six continents, often breaking down cultural and societal barriers while providing fans with their first-ever basketball experience. Proud inductees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, the Globetrotters have entertained hundreds of millions of fans-among them popes, kings, queens, and presidents-over more than eight thrilling decades.
