IF you want to see LeBron James during his Manila visit next week, better be quick to click.
The NBA superstar is set to appear in an event dubbed the LeBron James Rise Tour at the Mall of Asia Arena on August 20 to highlight his four-day visit to Manila.
James will announce the final Nike Rise team, made up of players culled from a nationwide search supervised by former national coach Chot Reyes, in the event starting at 7:15 p.m.
The four-time NBA MVP and two-time Olympic gold medallist is also set "to inspire the young athletes to leave their comfort zone and get better in the game like never before," Nike Philippines said.
Now here's the important part.
Nike Philippines has announced that the game will be opened to the public, with the tickets to be given away through online registration via http://gonike.me/LebronJamesRiseTour.
Online registration will be done for one day only, August 14 (Friday), from 9 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
Fans who successfully register will need to bring their confirmation email and valid ID on the designated times and dates at Nike stores from August 15 to 18 to pick up their tickets.
Fans can enjoy a custom “Rise Beyond Belief” photo booth exclusively at Nike Park Fort in Taguig and be part of a special LeBron James photo mosaic.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star is set to arrive for his second visit to Manila in two years in the afternoon of August 19 and will hold a mid-afternoon press conference the following day hours before the MOA event.
He is set to depart on August 22.
In July 2013, thousands of fans camped out at Nike Park outlets to secure tickets to James' first appearance before Manila fans at the MOA Arena.
