Valley Threads, a curated collection of apparel designed by the players, for the fans.
The Phoenix Mercury is launching a limited-edition t-shirt designed by guard Sophie Cunningham. The tee marks the Mercury’s first apparel piece of the Valley Threads collection, a program introduced by the Phoenix Suns in 2022 that allows athletes to express their creative side by designing custom merchandise.
A portion of proceeds from each sale will support youth wellness and basketball programs throughout the Valley – a cause chosen by Sophie Cunningham.
Fans can purchase the exclusive tee at the Team Shop at Footprint Center, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 5 while supplies last.
