In its intent to break the sports duopoly, the American company is hot on the heels of its larger rivals with its new 290-square meter brand house
Under Armour makes an even bigger impact on Philippine athletic gear with the opening of its biggest brand house at SM Mall of Asia.
The latest Under Armour brand house has a total floor area of 290 square meters, carrying a complete collection of merchandise across all categories. Whether running, cross-training, basketball, golf, or active lifestyle, you’ll find a gamut of sports and activewear gear designed with the latest technology to benefit your body and improve your performance. The MOA branch also houses exclusive styles from the Misty collection for women, the MK1 collection for men, and the Recovery collection for both men and women.
This is also the first of several stores that Athletes Pro Group Inc, the sole distributor of Under Armour in the Philippines, plans to open in 2019, in its mission to expand its reach not only in Metro Manila but also in key provinces in Northern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
