This past weekend, ANTA Philippines officially launches its Ayala Cebu store, the 18th in the country, and, so far, its largest boutique in the Philippines. Festivities began as the brand met with team officials of Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu to formalize the brand’s sponsorship of the school’s basketball team.

Currently waving the banner of high school standouts such as Jared Bahay, Raffy Celis and Mike Asoro, the Magis Eagles will be defending their championship next season in ANTA gear. As the newest and only school outside of Metro Manila to be part of the ANTA Varsity Project, the SHS-Ateneo de Cebu Magis Eagles will be outfitted in exclusive team gear similar to other TAVP schools such as Adamson University and the University of Sto. Tomas in the UAAP, and San Beda University and De La Salle-College of St. Benilde in the NCAA.
Prototypes of the SHS-Ateneo de Cebu’s game uniforms will be on exhibit at the ANTA Ayala Cebu store beginning this weekend.
ANTA Ayala Cebu will also debut the much-awaited limited edition ‘12 Images of Water’ colorway of the KT8, the eighth installment in Klay Thompson’s signature sneaker franchise with ANTA. Another special treat for the Cebuano crowd is the limited restock of the limited edition KT8 ‘Koi’. Both unique KT8 colorways will drop in extremely limited quantities.
To celebrate the official launch of the brand’s flagship store in the Queen City of the south, the San Beda Red Lions basketball squad visited the ANTA Ayala Cebu on the morning of the opening day, while select Cebu social media influencers and friends from the media will be experiencing the store in the afternoon. Live music will be provided by CJ the DJ from Magic 89.9.
