BURN IT DOWN.

We landed on this tagline for many reasons.

On the court, we won’t look back. Playoff losses be damned, we believe in this team, our culture – the fact that we represent the incredible Mohegan Tribe and its rich history of strong women. They, along with the most dedicated fan base in the WNBA, drive us forward, showing up win or lose. A new season represents a new opportunity to hang the first WNBA championship banner in the rafters of Mohegan Sun Arena. We embrace that with gusto, pride and belief.

Off the court, we stand for change. For diversity. For strength. We represent equality every time we step on the court as professional athletes. The old stereotypes of what women should become, look like, sound like, dress like – we’re here to burn them all down – by the way we unapologetically work, speak up, love and live. We are showing the next generation of young girls, there are no boundaries.

So this season, woven into everything we do on and off the court, you’ll hear this message. Burn It Down. Because what was, is no more.

Burning it Down: Cosmina Schulman, National Sales Manager at NESN

 

“The biggest obstacle is not having a lot of female role models in the sports industry,” Schulman said. “There’s a lot of entry-level females, there is some mid-level females, but there’s not a ton of executive management females. So not having anyone who’s blazed that trail for you previously, sometimes it’s hard to navigate how do you get there.” – Read the Story HERE. 

 

Burning it Down: Amber Cox, VP of Sports​ at Mohegan Sun

 

“The safe route was to stay close to home and continue where I was comfortable. I stepped out of that comfort zone and it was really uncomfortable for a while, it was scary…At the end of the day, it was the greatest decision I ever made​.” – Read the Story HERE.
