Basketball being the biggest sports in the Philippines and played by most, Vivo saw it fit to bring China’s HoopBattle Championship into the country!

The Stephen Curry-led global smartphone brand Vivo, together with Ayala Malls and Capdase, has formally launched the Vivo Hoop Battle Championship in the Philippines as its official title sponsor.

The HoopBattle Championship is an annual 3×3 basketball tournament held in some districts in China. This will be the first HoopBattle tournament eliminations to be outside of China. In the Philippines, it will be held in various Ayala Malls in the metro.

Vivo and Ayala’s partnership was announced last April 14, 2018 during the Vivo V9 Mall Tour kickoff in Market! Market! Capdase is also another partner of the Vivo HoopBattle Championship Philippines.

In the press launch, yours truly (Blogger Manila) was able to ask the Vivo Philippines representatives if they will ever be bringing basketball superstar Steph Curry to the Philippines. Let’s just say that let’s keep our hopes up as it is highly likely since Steph Curry is also Vivo‘s global brand ambassador.
