Jordan Brand Welcomes 8 More WNBA Players to Its Roster

Marking the label’s largest female lineup ever.

In honor of the WNBA‘s 25th anniversary, eight WNBA players are now officially representing Jordan Brand. The label and Michael Jordan took to Twitter to make the announcement earlier today.

“The world needs female voices, and we can’t ignore that or else we’re not growing,” Michael shared in a press release. “The Jordan Brand is committed to giving women a platform to amplify their voices, which influence, inspire and push culture forward.” Lensed by Ming Smith, the promotional visuals star Michael himself standing next to active WNBA athletes Jordin Canada, Te’a Cooper, Crystal Dangerfield, Chelsea Dungee, Arella Guirantes, Dearica Hamby, Kia Nurse, Aerial Powers and Satou Sabally.

“Representation really matters at this point in time,” Seattle Storm‘s point guard Canada commented. “To have 11 Black women be a part of this brand allows the younger generation and younger women to see that they can be like us — they can have that opportunity. I didn’t see that growing up.”

Now a part of the Jordan Brand family, the new members will use their influential platforms to promote social justice through the WNBA’s 2020 #SayHerName movement, the #WeGotUsChallenge initiative, or their own personal accounts. “We don’t just stick to our sport. We’re vocal in the league, as a whole, and we’re going to bring it to the community — to leave things better than we found them,” Minnesota Lynx‘s point guard Dangerfield added.

Head over to Jordan Brand’s website to find out more about the athletes.
