WNBA reportedly will not announce expansion plans by the end of the year, still hopes team starts by 2025

December 14, 2022

The WNBA expansion process is taking a little longer than expected. WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert told The Athletic the league would not announce a new expansion site by the end of the year.

Engelbert said in September she would love to make an expansion announcement by the end of 2022. The league, however, is still in the process of gathering information. Engelbert said she doesn’t consider this a delay, per The Athletic. Yahoo Finance
