WNBA Expansion Continues with the Golden State Valkyries

The WNBA will welcome a new team, the Golden State Valkyries, owned by Joe Lacob and scheduled to debut in 2025 at the Chase Center in San Francisco. The team name and logo were revealed, with a "V" logo representing both the Valkyries in flight and the Bay Bridge, and purple and black colors symbolizing female power and empowerment. The logo incorporates a sword-shaped bridge tower, with the bridge cables like wings, referencing Norse mythology and the character of Tessa Thompson in the Marvel universe. (Source: FOS)

Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob is expanding his sports reach with the arrival of the Valkyries, marking a significant moment in the WNBA. The choice of the team's name and colors was influenced by polls and social media interactions, with purple representing power, ambition, nobility and female empowerment. The logo includes subtle elements like the bridge cables transforming into wings, in addition to five triangles on each side of the sword to symbolize five-player basketball and 13 lines on the sword to mark the entrance of the team as the league's 13th franchise.
