Christine Urrata, Owner/CEO of the New Orleans Mojo, stated the following: "I was exposed to women's football while attending the Saints Hall of Fame game in Canton, OH in August 2012. I had flown into Pittsburgh that Saturday, August 3rd, and had stumbled across the 2012 WFA’s National Championship Game. It was being held at Heinz Field, televised on ESPN, and was hosted by the Pittsburgh Passion, an organization partially owned by Football Great, Franco Harris. Being the first women’s football game I had ever attended, I was extremely impressed by the entire experience; the teams, the talent of the players, and the presentation. With all major cities represented within the league, I felt compelled to act upon the fact that New Orleans no longer had an active team; therefore, I created the Mojo."
On August 15, 2012, the New Orleans Mojo, LLC was born. Christine designed the Mojo Amulet as the official logo of the team, and with the help of her daughter, artist Samantha Urrata, the Mojo mascots, Voodoo Queen Mojuba and her pet snake Zombie were created.
