“The Phenom” now joins the Jumpman Family!

Kiefer Ravena officially becomes the first Filipino athlete to sign with the iconic Jordan Brand.

The NLEX guard took to Instagram to announce the great news!

“I still can’t believe that I’m part of the Jordan Brand Family. I’m very fortunate to have a great support system,” Kiefer said.

“Thank you @jumpman23, I’m thankful for the opportunity to be the first Filipino joining the Jumpman Family.”

According to Jordan president Craig Williams in a statement, the brand was inspired in Manila’s basketball culture.

“We are united by a shared love for the game, and Kiefer – a two-time UAAP MVP and Champion – represents the passion and love for basketball that you see all over the Philippines,” Williams said.

Ravena joins the exclusive list of elite athletes of Jordan Brand endorsers such as Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum, Bam Adebayo, Rui Hachimura, and Zion Williamson.
