Atlanta Dream to Host Two Indiana Fever Games at State Farm Arena

Atlanta Dream News Release

ATLANTA - The Atlanta Dream announced today that the Dream's June 21 and Aug. 26 home games against the Indiana Fever will be played at State Farm Arena.

The games will feature two of the WNBA's most exciting teams with some of the league's brightest young stars, including the last three No. 1 overall picks in the WNBA draft - Rhyne Howard (Dream), Aliyah Boston and Caitlin Clark (Fever).

"Atlanta Dream fans are the best in the WNBA," said Atlanta Dream President and COO Morgan Shaw Parker. "Their passion and excitement led us to the most sellouts in the league over the last two years and has created a demand for tickets that far outpaces the supply inside our current arena, which is why we wanted to find a way to give more fans access to experience these two games. We're thrilled to work with State Farm Arena and the Atlanta Hawks to create a truly special environment."

The Dream and Hawks will partner to deliver a fan experience that is unique to the city they both call home with a goal of making these the largest Dream home games in the history of the franchise. State Farm Arena, which seats more than 17,000 for basketball, will give the Dream an opportunity to play in front of a record-setting home crowd. The largest attendance for a Dream game occurred in 2008 as 11,609 fans filled Philips Arena for the team's inaugural game against the Detroit Shock (now Dallas Wings).

"The Atlanta Dream have created an incredible experience and home court advantage at Gateway Center Arena, and with the fantastic growth of the WNBA, we are happy to host the Dream and the basketball community at State Farm Arena," said Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Saltzman.

All Dream season ticket holders will have their Fever tickets transferred to a comparable location within the lower level of State Farm Arena. Fans who purchased single game tickets to the Fever games will have their initial purchase refunded and given exclusive access to a presale window on Tuesday, May 21 to purchase seats in State Farm Arena. There will also be an exclusive window on May 21 for fans who registered for the Dream Presale this spring. Tickets for the general public will go on sale Wednesday, May 22. Fans can visit for more information.

"We are excited to welcome our loyal Dream fan base, along with new fans, to State Farm Arena," said Dream Head Coach Tanisha Wright. "We want to create the ultimate home court advantage and pack the house with red and blue as we work toward another playoff push this year."

The announcement comes on the heels of a successful 2023 campaign and busy offseason for the Dream. Led by WNBA all-stars Rhyne Howard, Allisha Gray and Cheyenne Parker-Tyus, Atlanta made the playoffs for the first time since 2018 and led the WNBA in sold-out games.

In April, the Dream became the second team in WNBA history to sell out its season ticket allotment, and Atlanta has already sold out 10 home games for the 2024 season to date.
