Wilson Sporting Goods has announced the release of a signature basketball collection for Indiana Fever star Caitlin Clark as a tribute to her continued legacy.

The rookie women’s basketball sensation would also work with Wilson to innovate basketball products across the WNBA, NBA, and basketball at large.

“Wilson has been with me across some of the most pivotal moments in my career so far, and I couldn’t be more excited to continue driving basketball forward alongside them,” Clark said in a press release.

The Fever star said it felt surreal to have her own basketball collection, and to affect what it meant for future generations of athletes.

Wilson confirmed in an email to CBS Sports that Clark would be the first female athlete to have a signature basketball collection with the sporting goods company.

Indiana Fever selected Clark first overall in the 2024 WNBA Draft after she became the all-time NCAA Division I leading scorer at Iowa.

Clark’s historic college career culminated in two appearances in the NCAA championship, and her postseason success was one of the main reasons why Wilson sought to collaborate with the WNBA guard.

Wilson was created to celebrate the most iconic moments in the sports sector. It has always aligned itself with trailblazers who break boundaries and write their own story, said Amanda Lamb, head of global brand at Wilson.

Caitlin Clark is not only a record-breaking athlete, but also a cultural icon who has impacted the game profoundly. Wilson could not be more proud to join forces with Caitlon Clarkto to continue innovating basketball both on and off the court, she said.

Wilson launched a new official WNBA game ball in 2021, ahead of the league’s 25th season.

The then-Las Vegas Aces center Liz Cambage became the first WNBA player to be named to the Wilson advisory staff.
