Taking a seat to take a stand.

 
 

WNBA > Take a seat, take a stand

TAKE A SEAT, TAKE A STAND. Even in an era where women’s voices are stronger than ever, they continue to be sidelined in sports. Don’t take my word for it. All you need to do is take a look at the declining ticket sales and in-person attendance of WNBA games. Now that the women’s movement has achieved critical mass, the WNBA wants to stake their claim as a leader in sports. After claiming “We Got Next” in 1996, they became a pioneer of a movement that hadn’t taken off yet. Now it’s time to show the next generation that “next” is now and that women aren’t just waiting around for their turn to play. This season, a ticket does more than support women’s sports; it supports organizations that are changing the game for women and girls.  Now every seat at a WNBA game is a chance to stand up for women and girls.

This season, the WNBA calls all voices currently supporting women into the arena. By showing up to the game, you'll be doing more than supporting women in sports. You'll be standing up for women everywhere. The WNBA arenas are divided into sections, each assigned to a partner organization. When you take a seat, you'll be standing for a cause of your choosing and the WNBA will donate a portion of your ticket towards it.
