The NBA Champions, the Golden State Warriors, will once again honour their Chinese fan base with special edition uniforms. The Club will first wear their 2015-16 season Chinese New Year uniforms on court during a road game on Wednesday February 3rd in Washington in honour of the start of Lunar New Year.
The Club will sport the Chinese-themed jersey again during Lunar New Year on Tuesday February 9th when the Warriors hold their official Chinese New Year Celebration. This will be presented by Lucky Buddha Beer at the Oracle Arena when they face the Houston Rockets.
To conclude the 2016 Lunar New Year, the Club will wear the Chinese New Year uniforms for the final time during the 2015-16 season on Friday, February 19 at Portland.
On Tuesday, January 26, from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Warriors Guard Klay Thompson will first show the new 2015-16 threads when he joins the Adopt an Alley Way Program in Chinatown, San Francisco.
“We have an amazing following from our Chinese fans both here in the Bay Area and abroad,” said Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts. “Hosting a Chinese New Year celebration at Oracle Arena and wearing the uniforms to honour Lunar New Year is a great way to not only connect with the Asian culture, but thank our fans for supporting us throughout the season.”
Both the Warriors road game on February 3 and home game on February 9 will be broadcast on CCTV in China.
