WNBA Delaying 2020 Season Due to COVID-19

WNBA Delaying 2020 Season Due to COVID-19

These are unprecedented times we are living in. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to progress, the WNBA has announced a delay to the start of the 2020 season. A return date has not yet been announced.

Tickets already purchased for any postponed game will be honored when the game is rescheduled. If games are not played or played in an empty arena, teams will work with fans on a credit for a future game or a refund.

While this situation is extremely fluid and ever-changing, our primary concern is the health and well-being of our fans, our athletes and staff. We are all in uncharted waters and appreciate your patience as we navigate them together.

To that point, we understand that you may have questions regarding the potential timing of the season, game dates and all the benefits of being a season ticket holder. As we know more, we will share immediately.

Because of this crisis, social distancing and the shelter-in-place order for the State of Georgia, our Draft Party has been cancelled. However, the WNBA Draft itself will go on as scheduled, Friday, April 17 at 7pm on ESPN. Please tune in and watch as we draft the next young stars to the Dream!

This is a worldwide crisis that deserves every precaution – and as much time as necessary – to ensure that your fan experience is not compromised once you return to Gateway Center Arena. It is my sincere hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and healthy. We appreciate the loyalty you have shown the Dream and we will continue to build on that moving forward.

Most sincerely,

Chris Sienko
President & GM
Atlanta Dream
