The Chinese equipment manufacturer Anta wanted to take advantage of the organization of the World Cup in Asia to take a shot and ensure its promotion. Mission accomplished since the brand and the player have formalized their new kind of partnership since the sponsorship agreement only concerns World Cup matches, for now!
Leader of the Philippine selection and among the stars of the tournament as an NBA player, Jordan Clarkson will therefore evolve for at least three games with Anta shoes on their feet.
“The FIBA Basketball World Cup is arguably one of the best basketball tournaments in the world. The fact that one of the best players in the world can represent Anta at the highest level of competition reinforces our confidence that our brand currently produces the best basketball product on the market.”, said JP PaglinawanManaging Director of Anta Group Philippines.
According to this same group, discussions are underway to continue sponsorship for the 2023-2024 NBA season. If an agreement were to be concluded, Jordan Clarkson would then join players like Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward or Klay Thompson, also sponsored by Anta.
