The event will take place before our first home game of the season against the Worcester Wolves, meaning basketball fans can enjoy a fiesta of balling fun to get the campaign underway.
Rodman will take part in a live seated Q&A in on the Scorchers showcourt, before staying for the BBL game itself.
VIP options are available for the event, giving attendees the chance to have an exclusive meet and greet and photo with the man himself.

Dennis Keith Rodman, Loud. Flamboyant. Brash. Brilliant. While Dennis was both celebrated and hated for his tattoos, colorful hair, and bad boy attitude, there was no denying the greatness of a man that controlled games just by controlling the boards.
The six-foot-eight-inch forward led the NBA in rebounds per game for a record-setting seven consecutive seasons from 1991 to 1998. A two-time Defensive Player of the Year and seven-time All-Defensive First Team honoree, Rodman loved doing the dirty work that is crucial to a team's success. "The Worm" won his first NBA championship in 1989 with the Detroit Pistons.The following year Rodman was the league's best defender and he helped the Pistons capture a second consecutive ring.
In 1995, after a short stint with the San Antonio Spurs, Rodman landed in Chicago where he teamed with fellow Hall of Famers Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan to bring the Windy City three titles in three years.
