SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced single game ticket information for the 2018 campaign, and general public can secure seats starting at 10 a.m. PT. Those who wish to purchase can do so by visiting StormBasketball.com or by clicking here.
The Storm tips off the 2018 slate against the Phoenix Mercury on May 20 during Opening Night presented by Swedish, with start time set for 6 p.m. PT at KeyArena. This matchup will be one of three promotion nights that include bobblehead giveaways. On May 20, the first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a Sue Bird bobblehead to celebrate her league record-breaking assist last season at Washington, and her game-worn jersey from that contest will also be on display, allowing fans to take photos and capture a visual taste of WNBA history.
Seattle’s two other bobblehead nights will feature Breanna Stewart and Jewell Loyd, who both posted career highs for points per game in 2017 with 19.9 and 17.7, respectively. Loyd bobblehead giveaways are set for June 15 vs. the Connecticut Sun, while Stewart giveaways will follow on July 8 vs. the Washington Mystics. Once again, the first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive the memorabilia.
Kelsey Plum returns to Seattle on May 31 at 7 p.m. PT, and Storm fans will also get their first look at the Las Vegas Aces, who announced their relocation from San Antonio to Sin City in October. With Plum, the No. 1 overall draft pick from 2017, and under a new head coach in Bill Laimbeer, this Storm-Aces showdown on the final day of May should live up to its expectations.
The defending WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx come to the Emerald City on Aug. 3 for Breast Health Awareness (BHA) night at 7 p.m. PT, as the Storm looks for its second straight win at home against Maya Moore, Sylvia Fowles and Lindsay Whalen.
The Storm is seeking its third consecutive playoff appearance in 2018 and its first under head coach Dan Hughes, with 2017 All-Stars Bird and Stewart leading the way, along with rising superstar Loyd. Seattle also returns Crystal Langhorne, who bested her own franchise single-game field goal percentage record with a 64.7 mark in 2017 while scoring 12.4 points per game. In separate offseason transactions, the team added 2017 WNBA Champion, 6-2 forward Natasha Howard from the Minnesota Lynx and free agent 6-4 center Courtney Paris.
Seattle will have the 5th and 29th overall picks in 2018 WNBA Draft presented by State Farm, which will take place tonight at Nike’s New York City headquarters. ESPN2 will provide coverage and analysis of the first round beginning at 7 p.m. ET, and ESPNU will air coverage of the second and third rounds starting at 8 p.m. ET.
