The 25th season of the WNBA will tip off in a couple of months. As we inch closer to the milestone year, the league has partnered with Wilson Sporting Goods Co. to unveil a new game ball.

“As we head into our 25th season with more momentum and energy than ever, we are excited to be partnering with Wilson on our new official game ball,” stated Cathy Engelbert, WNBA Commissioner.  “We’re grateful for Wilson’s partnership and commitment to women’s basketball, and the updated white and fire orange look signifies a new chapter for the WNBA brand and our game.”

Furthermore, Wilson also has created a WNBA Advisory Staff which will have Liz Cambage of the Las Vegas Aces. Cambage’s advisory role will include her playtest, give feedback and collaborate with the company on basketball products. Other members of the staff will include Chris Brickley (a skills coach) and Du’an Bulut (a FIBA 3-on-3 star).

“I’m so excited to be the first WNBA player on Wilson’s Advisory Staff,” said Cambage.  “It’s beyond important for women like me to have a seat at the table to influence creative ideas and provide performance insights.”

Fans will be able to purchase the ball as early as May 3 exclusively at wilson.com. Starting May 17, the ball will be available for purchase at select stores including WNBAStore.com.

“We are thrilled to be tipping off our partnership with the WNBA in advance of a historic 25th milestone season,” shared Amanda Lamb, the Global Marketing Director, Team Sports at Wilson. “Introducing the Evo NXT to the pinnacle of the women’s game, and announcing our first WNBA Advisory Staff member, all in the midst of Women’s History Month, is truly a momentous occasion for Wilson.”
