BROOKLYN, NY – The Brooklyn Nets plan to shutdown Women’s History Month with an explosive performance from Lil Kim on March 29 when the Nets take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Barclays Center for their annual Women’s Empowerment Game.
According to a press release, the Nets will highlight the accomplishments and contributions of female pioneers and history makers, along with honoring the women of BSE Global and Barclays Center by running the name of every female employee on the arena’s scoreboard and exterior LEDs.
A historical video tribute to the Brooklynettes dance team will be broadcast as well followed by the performance from Lil Kim who also designed the tops the group will wear during the routine. Prior to tipoff, the Director of Programming and Special Events for Barclays Center Lauren Winston-McPherson will perform the national anthem, while Production Manager for YES Network Dana McConnell will announce the Nets starting lineup.
The game is the culmination of the organization’s Women’s History Month celebration — Brooklyn TogetHER: A Women’s Empowerment Celebration – through which the Nets have celebrated the achievements, contributions and overall impact women have had on society. The team tipped off the month-long program on International Women’s Day by sharing a video across the organization’s website and social media channels, honoring the women of BSE Global and including a special message of gratitude and support from BSE Global CEO John Abbamondi.
The Nets will provide the required COVID-19 testing at no additional cost for fans who haven’t been fully vaccinated, but COVID-19 tests won’t be required for fully vaccinated fans. The game tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on YES Network. Tickets for the Nets Women’s Empowerment Game are currently available here.
