The team’s press release said that in Norse mythology, Valkyries are "warrior women who are fearless and unwavering," and that’s what they want to be on the court. 

"This moment is so much bigger than Golden State. It's so much bigger than the Valkyries," Valkyries president Jess Smith told "GMA." "What we are seeing happening in women's sports right now is just the beginning of the sustainability and incredible growth around the game and to have expansion in the W."

The Valkyries, though, won’t be kicking off their inaugural campaign on Tuesday like the rest of the league. They will begin in 2025 at the Chase Center in San Francisco. 

As for the team’s color scheme, "Valkyrie Violet" was chosen along with black. Valkryie Violet was chosen to symbolize "power, ambition, nobility and women’s empowerment."
