WNBA Golden State reveals official team name for new franchise

After going by “WNBA Golden State” since the announcement of the WNBA’s expansion to the Bay Area, the new franchise officially has its team name.

On Tuesday, WNBA Golden State announced the franchise’s team name would be the “Golden State Valkyries.”

In their official announcement, WNBA Golden State described the Valkyrie name as “originating from Norse mythology, Valkyries are a host of warrior women who are fearless and unwavering – flying through air and sea alike. This brand is Golden State’s modern interpretation of Valkyries: strong, bold, and fierce.” “Valkyrie Violet” will serve as the team’s primary color.

The Valkyries will be the WNBA’s 13th franchise and the first expansion team since 2008. The Valkyries are set to join the WNBA in 2025.
