Audio brand JBL, best known for its line of headphones, has unveiled its athlete ambassador roster for 2021 – and for the first time, it is bringing the WNBA into its sphere.

Candace Parker, who made major headlines at the beginning of this free agency period by signing with the Chicago Sky after over a decade with the Los Angeles Sparks, was announced as the first-ever WNBA ambassador for the brand.

Moving into 2021, our growing ambassador program and team partners will continue to serve as a unique platform to connect fans to music through the power of sport. To continue our program’s growth, we are overjoyed to welcome Candace Parker as our first female ambassador.
