Steph Curry will witness the opening of UAAP Season 81 on Saturday, September 8. Curry, who will be arriving in Manila Thursday night, September 6, will  be the special guest of UAAP Season 81 hosts National University.

On its social media page, NU made this announcement that sent Filipino basketball fans reeling: “Stephen Curry will be at the #UAAPSeason81 opening to inspire UAAP athletes and sports fans!”

What a coup for NU! We’re sure it cost them a bundle!

“Celebrating the game of basketball as it continues to grow – obviously around the world but specifically in the Philippines – it was something everybody here at Under Armour talks about a lot and hopefully we can recreate that soon,” said Under Armour in a statement.

This will be Steph Curry’s second time in Manila. He was also here in 2015. Earlier this year, his teammate, Kevin Durant, was also here for Nike.
