Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry is set to grace Manila once more as he boards for his fourth Asian Tour for his apparel firm Under Armour this September.

“I can’t wait to return to Asia with Under Armour and celebrate our third title with my fans in the Philippines, China, and Tokyo,” Curry was quoted as saying in a report.

The Golden State Warriors point guard will star in a three-day Philippine tour on September 6 to 8. Curry first visited Manila in 2015 after he won his first NBA championship.

“Coming back to Manila and Tokyo again is exciting, as my previous experiences were so much fun there,” the three-time NBA champ added.

According to the report, Curry will leave US on Sept. 5 for the seven-day three-city tour of Asia. He’ll first stopover will be Manila, (Sept. 6 – 8) followed by Wuhan, China (Sept. 8 – 10), and Tokyo, Japan (Sept. 10 – 12).

Curry will showcase his skills together with Pinoy hoops fans, host basketball clinics, and participate in media events.

Last week, Curry’s teammate Kevin Durant also visited the Philippines to promote his new KD shoes.
