This marks the Storm’s 20th WNBA season.

Because of the remodeling of Key Arena in Seattle the Seattle Storm will play five home games at Angel of the Winds Arena in downtown Everett including their home opener which will be televised nationally. Here’s more in a press release issued today by the team.

The Seattle Storm today announced the regular season schedule for the upcoming 2019 season. The team will begin its title defense facing the Phoenix Mercury at Angel of the Winds Arena on Saturday, May 25 at 12:30 p.m. on ABC. Opening Day presented by Swedish will feature a ring ceremony celebrating the franchise’s third WNBA title.

The 2019 campaign includes 34 regular season games from May 25 to September 8. Due to KeyArena renovations, the Storm will host five regular season games at Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett, Washington; all other home games will be played at the University of Washington’s Alaska Airlines Arena. Beginning January, Storm 360 Members will have priority on the best seat locations at Angel of the Winds Arena. These seats will be comparable to those that they have already selected at Alaska Airlines Arena.

The Saturday, May 25 home opener is a rematch of the Storm’s thrilling 2018 semifinal series vs. Phoenix. Sporting a facemask to protect the broken nose that she suffered in Game 4, Sue Bird scored 14 points in the fourth quarter of the winner-take-all Game 5 to clinch the Storm’s third appearance in the WNBA Finals. Bird, the league’s all-time leader in assists (2,831) and games played (508), will begin her 17th WNBA season facing former UConn teammate Diana Taurasi, the WNBA’s all-time leader in points (8,549), field goals (2,721) and 3-point field goals (1,102).

In addition to the home opener the other games to be played at Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett, Washington are:
