MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Lynx today unveiled the much-anticipated new Nike uniform collection that recognizes the league’s players as Heroines, Explorers, and Rebels.
In March, as part of Women’s History Month, the WNBA launched its commemorative 25th anniversary logo and plans for season-long activations, celebrations, and new elements which now includes new uniforms. The uniforms will rotate throughout the 2021 season and celebrate each team’s local community attributes.
“The introduction of the Heroine, Explorer, and Rebel uniforms are significant and special as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the WNBA. The Minnesota Lynx uses sport as a vehicle of change,” said Minnesota Lynx President of Business Operations Carley Knox. “Each uniform embodies player and team characteristics – attitude, potential, power, and honors not only our fans, but our community as well. We’re excited to welcome back our fans at Target Center and look forward to seeing many of you in our new uniforms as well.”
The Minnesota Lynx Nike Heroine Edition uniform showcases Minnesota’s courageous nature to rise above adversity and fight for what’s right. It’s sophisticated yet timeless look pays homage to our team’s DNA like never before. The Heroine represents the resiliency that runs through our veins.
The Minnesota Lynx Nike Explorer Edition uniform channels the ambitious spirit of our team as we carve a legacy on the game and create new paths for change. In its essence, the uniform tells stories of the past and present and blazes trails for the future. The Explorer represents the relentless desire to hunt what’s next.
The Minnesota Lynx Nike Rebel Edition uniform is bold and iconic by design and inspired by the legendary soul of First Avenue. When worn, the lights are on, the sound is loud, and we take centerstage. The Rebel represents the unapologetic and disruptive spirit of our team. A portion of the proceeds from the Rebel inspired t-shirt will benefit the Twin Cities Music Community Trust – a nonprofit supporting out-of-work artists/entertainment professionals directly impacted by COVID-19.
