Filipino NBA fans will have a treat when champions Golden State Warriors (GSW) wear a special shirt celebrating Filipino Heritage Night before their game against the Brooklyn Nets on November 14 (Sunday in Manila) at the Oracle Arena in San Francisco.
The announcement was posted on GSW’s Facebook page on Thursday.
Because they were sold out fast, organizers announced that tickets for the second Filipino Heritage Night on March 25, 2016 are now on sale. The match will be between the Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks.
Headed by Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry, the Warriors’ match against the Nets will be preceded by a presentation of food trucks of Filipino delicacies as well as live performances. Fans will also be given a chance to take a photo with the 2015 Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy at the parking lot of the venue.
Special ticket holders will receive a commemorative Warriors Kampeon shirt courtesy of Cache Creek Casino Resort, the presenter of the event.
