Some of Asia’s best young basketball players and fans will experience Stephen’s relentless dedication to the game of basketball up close and personal during tour stops in Shenyang, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Taipei. “I’m thrilled to get the chance to visit some of the best basketball fans in the world this summer,” said Curry. “Being able to share my passion for the game with this next generation of players in Asia—while immersing myself in their incredible culture and witnessing first-hand the infatuation for the game—is humbling, and personally it’s a tremendous reenergizer for the upcoming season. I can’t wait to meet some of the phenomenal fans and players who are committed to driving the game forward on a global scale.”
The 2016 “Stephen Curry Asia Tour” connects Stephen with the people and culture of these diverse countries through up close and personal interactions, via experiential activations, cultural happenings and more, in an effort to showcase Stephen’s love of the game and unending drive to get better, all while sharing and spreading that commitment and passion for basketball with fans and players alike.
The Philippines will surely never miss out this tour as basketball is the country’s top sport and being able to play on court with the Back-to-Back MVP Stephen Curry is one of the Filipino youth’s most awaited basketball experience. To represent Philippines, Under Armour PH in partnership with Slam sent out 2 young basketball aficionados, Juan Gomez De Liano and Gian Mamuyac.
Gomez De Liano, a 6 feet point guard of the University of the Philippines Integrated School was also able to play with Steph Curry during the MVP’s #UAROADSHOWMANILA visit last year. Follow the tour experience @UnderArmour and @UnderArmourPH.
