Who are the rivals?

Hello WNBA Fans,

Since 2014, we—the students and professors of the Know Rivalry Project—have been answering this question for sports in North America with the help of message board members. Now we are expanding our research to the WNBA. Please help us ensure that your favorite team is included by taking 9 minutes to complete our updated survey:


Our previous results in the US have been featured in numerous sports media outlets, as well as the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. You can view those results, links to media coverage, and learn more about us at our KnowRivalry.com website.

We use the Qualtrics online survey software for data collection. This academic research has been approved by two US universities' Institutional Review Boards (IRB) and it poses no risks to respondents. You'll find more information on the disclosure agreement that is required to start the survey. Thank you for helping us to include your favorite team by participating and please share this with any other fans that may also help.
