Wings Announce 2020 WNBA Season Schedule
The WNBA announced the league's schedule for the 2020 WNBA season today. The Dallas Wings' 2020 slate features 36 total games, two more than last season, with 18 regular season contests played at home in College Park Center as well as 18 outings on the road.
"The additional regular season games will add excitement for our fans and is representative of the growth of our League," Dallas Wings President & CEO Greg Bibb stated. "Our season ticket plans have traditionally included 18 games (17 regular season games plus one pre-season game). With the additional 18th regular season home contest this year, our pre-season game will be provided as a bonus game for season ticket members as a 19th game in their package. Other fans will be able to purchase tickets to the pre-season contest at special pricing. More details, including the game date, time and opponent will be announced at a later time."
The Wings tip-off the season Friday, May 15 at the Seattle Storm in a rematch of the 2019 season finale and wrap up the 2020 regular season Sunday, Sept. 20 at home against the Las Vegas Aces. This is the first time the Wings and Storm will meet to begin the season and just the second time in team history the season has begun in the Pacific Time Zone.
Dallas will open the team's home slate against the Minnesota Lynx on Saturday, May 23 at 7 p.m. CT, the second time in three seasons the two squads have faced each other in the College Park Center home opener. The Wings will play 11 more home games before a month hiatus for the 2020 Summer Olympics. The team will return to action in Arlington, Texas on Sunday, August 16 against the New York Liberty at 3 p.m. CT. The Dallas Wings will play 11 of its home games on a weekend, six of them falling on Sundays.
The Wings June 23 matchup against the Seattle Storm from College Park Center will be broadcast on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. CT.
The 2019 Dallas Wings were the youngest team in the league by a considerable margin and were led by Rookie of the Year Runner-up Arike Ogunbowale and 2017 Rookie of the Year Allisha Gray. Ogunbowale was third in the league in scoring (19.1 ppg), ended her first season as the third leading all-time rookie scorer in WNBA history. She enters the 2020 season with an active streak of 20 or more points in 11 games, dating back to August 10, 2019. Gray returns having played in every single game of her first three seasons and having eclipsed 1,000 points in her WNBA career. In addition to Ogunbowale and Gray, the team will bolster its young core with two first round picks in the 2020 WNBA Draft this April.
