UNCASVILLE, Conn. (December 18 2018) – The Sun kicks off the 2019 campaign with two home games, starting the season at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, May 25 at 7:30 p.m. vs. Elena Delle Donne and the Washington Mystics. On Tuesday, May 28, the Indiana Fever travels to Uncasville, followed by the Sun’s first road trip of the season in Los Angeles on May 31 and Las Vegas on June 2. Of the 17 home games at Mohegan Sun Arena, 10 will be played on either a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
A 21-win playoff team for the second-consecutive year in 2018, the Sun will open its nationally televised slate on Sunday, June 16 at home against the defending champion Seattle Storm on ABC. Game time is set for 3:30 p.m. Other national broadcasts include a stop in Washington on June 29 at 2 p.m. on ESPN before a home matchup against the Minnesota Lynx on July 6 at 2 p.m. on ESPN2 and another against the Phoenix Mercury at 8 p.m. also on ESPN2. The Sun is featured in four of the WNBA’s 16 national broadcasts.
“We’re thrilled to be featured four times on national television in 2019, including three games at Mohegan Sun Arena,” said Amber Cox, Vice President of the Sun. “It speaks volumes about our coaching staff, players, fan base and front office. Our young and dynamic roster plays an exciting brand of basketball that has New England energized about how far this team can go. The play on the court, along with a revitalized in-game experience, has resulted in solid growth to our already loyal fan base over the last two seasons. Couple that with marquee opponents for these games – along with our entire schedule – it’s something every basketball fan will want to be a part of this summer.”
Other highlights of the home schedule include a second visit from Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird and the Storm on August 16, while Diana Taurasi and the Mercury return on August 1. Washington pays the Sun another visit on June 11 and the Sun will host the Atlanta Dream at home twice – once on June 21 and again on July 19. The team will also host its second annual matinee game on Wednesday, July 24 at 11:30 a.m. vs. New York.
After the first road trip of the season, the Sun will head to Atlanta on June 9 at 3 p.m. and Minnesota on June 14 at 8 p.m. before closing out June in Chicago on June 24, Dallas on June 26 and wrapping up the trip with the ESPN2 game in Washington on June 29.
