ANTA Group Philippines executives were thrilled to announce this development and have Clarkson sport their products on the biggest stage in international basketball competition.

“The FIBA World Cup is arguably one of the top basketball tournaments in the world. To have one of the top players in the world showcase ANTA at the highest level of competition reinforces our confidence that our brand produces the best basketball product in the market right now," said Paglinawan.

Abello added: “We are overjoyed to have Jordan choose to wear ANTA in international basketball’s biggest stage especially with the Philippines hosting the quadrennial tournament. It’s an exciting time for the brand this year and having Jordan be a part of it only makes it even more special.”

Clarkson is just one of the many NBA players that will be competing in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, which will be hosted in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia.

The 32-nation event will run from August 25 to September 10.
