NATIONAL (WDNews) – Wilson Sporting Goods Co. has announced a major multiyear partnership with Caitlin Clark, the Indiana Fever guard who is quickly becoming a household name in basketball. This deal marks a significant step for Wilson in its commitment to enhancing the women’s game.

The agreement includes the launch of Clark’s first-ever signature basketball line, set to debut later this year. Throughout 2024, Wilson will also release various collections celebrating Clark’s impressive career and contributions to the sport.

“Wilson is made to celebrate the most iconic moments in sport, and we have always aligned ourselves with trailblazers who break boundaries and write their own story,” says Amanda Lamb, Head of Global Brand at Wilson. “Caitlin Clark is not just a record-setting athlete, but a cultural icon who has had a profound impact on the game. We couldn’t be prouder to join forces with her to continue innovating basketball both on and off the court.”

Clark’s influence and insights are expected to help Wilson push the boundaries of basketball gear, ensuring that the products meet the evolving needs of players everywhere. This partnership not only underscores Clark’s rising stardom but also highlights Wilson’s dedication to the growth and support of women’s basketball.
