September 19, 2023

In the midst of the exhilarating FIBA World Cup 2023 in Jakarta, Indonesia, PUMA and Foot Locker Asia orchestrated an unforgettable event that had fans buzzing with excitement. The occasion? A Meet & Greet featuring none other than PUMA’s ambassador and NBA sensation, RJ Barrett, marking a historic moment as the first NBA player to visit Foot Locker Indonesia.

On August 30, the stage was set at Foot Locker Senayan City in Jakarta. Over 250 people, including fans, media representatives from outlets like CNN Indonesia, local basketball community leaders and key figures from the Indonesia Basketball Association, gathered for this star-studded event.

The event was divided into two captivating segments:


The “Q&A and Media Interview” kicked things off with a 30-minute panel discussion. RJ Barrett shared insights into his collaboration with PUMA, his remarkable journey through the NBA and FIBA, and his personal experiences and thoughts about Indonesia.


Following the interview, the “Meet & Greet Session” unfolded, allowing fans an up-close and personal interaction with RJ Barrett. This exclusive session was capped at 200 participants, and it didn’t take long—just two days after being promoted on Foot Locker Indonesia’s Instagram account—for all available slots to be filled.

As the grand finale, PUMA and Foot Locker Indonesia treated fans to an exclusive giveaway. Ten lucky winners had the chance to walk away with Jakarta tees personally signed by RJ Barrett himself.


This event beautifully encapsulated the essence of RJ Barrett’s journey, his exciting partnership with PUMA, and his genuine connection with Indonesia. It was a night that left an indelible mark on the hearts of basketball fans in Jakarta, and a moment they will cherish for years to come.
