The Golden State Warriors Were Granted the Ability to have a WNBA Expansion Team for the 2025 Season

Sean Mahon – Editor in Chief

In October 2023, the WNBA granted the seven-time NBA Champion Golden State Warriors the ability to have a WNBA expansion team. The new team will begin playing in the WNBA in 2025 and will be the first time a new franchise will join the WNBA in 17 years and will be the sixth NBA franchise to have a WNBA franchise. The new team will play at the Chase Center in San Francisco and will practice at the Golden State’s Oakland Facility, which was the Warriors practice facility from 1997 to 2019. This Oakland facility will also be the WNBA team’s headquarters and Front Office. It will be interesting to see if the Golden State Warriors WNBA team creates a legacy like the NBA team.
