We’ve just been notified that the Georgetown men’s basketball team will be coming to China! They will be in Beijing on August 14-18 and Shanghai on August 19-24.
For more information, go to the official Georgetown website.
Here is a copy of the email:
Many of you have been following the men’s basketball team since your first day of freshman year. Did you ever think you could follow the team to China?
This August, the Hoyas will travel to Beijing and Shanghai for their first overseas trip in two decades. You have a unique opportunity to interact with the coaches and players unlike any other time or place in the world.
Join the team and Georgetown leaders to meet with Chinese officials, participate in cultural and community service programs, connect with alumni and-of course-watch the Hoyas in exhibition basketball games against the leading teams in China.
If you are interested in joining us in one or both cities or have questions for our planning team, please email us at: HoyasInChina@georgetown.edu.
You can find a full itinerary and travel details online.
Here are some highlights:
August 16: Exhibition Game 1

Since departure is just 50 days away, please let us know if you are interested in taking part in this historic trip by July 1, so that we can negotiate the best hotel rates for you to stay with Coach Thompson and the team, though you are also welcome to find your own accommodation and join us on specific outings. We estimate that rates will be between $250-$300 USD per night at our selected hotels.
St. Regis, Beijing – 8/15-8/19

If you are interested in taking part in this visit in either or both cities, please contact us at your earliest convenience at HoyasInChina@georgetown.edu. Once we have all the information on the hotel offerings, we will be in touch with you directly.
We hope to see you in China in August!
