Stephen Curry’s second annual Asian adventure is scheduled to kick off next month.
The National Basketball Association’s reigning Most Valuable Player will team with Under Armour for his second summer tour on Sept. 2. He will visit four cities over five days and host a series of clinics, events and activities designed to help players “realize their potential both on and off the court,” according to Under Armour.
Some of Asia’s best young basketball players and fans will experience Curry’s dedication to the game of basketball during tour stops in Shenyang, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Taipei.
“I’m pleased 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 firsthand 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 Stephen Curry Asia tour will begin in Shenyang on Sept. 2, followed by Guangzhou on Sept. 3 and 4, Hong Kong on Sept. 5 and Taipei on Sept. 6. The goal is to connect the popular player with people and cultures of diverse countries through personal interactions, experiential activations, cultural happenings and more.
The tour will be documented on both Under Armour’s web site as well as the UABasketball subsite.
