Leading performance footwear, apparel, and equipment developer, Under Armour, flew this year’s NBA MVP Stephen Curry in Manila to headline the Philippine leg of the #UARoadShow. The Golden State Warriors ace was joined by Under Armour CEO and founder, Kevin Plank.

In the same way, Curry’s excellence in the court significantly contributed to Golden State Warriors’ first NBA Championship since 1975.
With Curry and Plank on board, the UA roadshow aims to share these same their work ethic and passion for the game of basketball to players and fans across Asia.
During the media Q & A held on September 5, Curry shared that he looks forward to experiencing the vibrant energy of the cultures of each country he’ll be visiting throughout the tour. He also said that he will surely return to the Philippines, further stating that he was surprised, but at the same time grateful for the warm welcome.
