The WNBA schedule is here!
Appropriately released between Chanukah and Christmas, the best present of December is here: the WNBA’s 2019 season schedule.
There’s a great deal to get excited about, among them:
17 games on the ESPN family of networks, including four games on ABC—May 25, Phoenix at Seattle, June 8, Los Angeles at Minnesota, June 16, Seattle at Connecticut, and the all star game July 27.
We’re excited that ESPN will feature expanded coverage of WNBA games in the 2019 season,” said interim WNBA President Mark Tatum in a press release. “The enhanced schedule reflects ESPN’s commitment to the WNBA and gives our fans additional opportunities on ESPN networks to see the best players in the world compete at the highest level.”
A pair of games serve as the official openers on Friday, May 24: Dallas at Atlanta and Indiana at New York. The former will be Brian Agler’s debut as Wings head coach, while the latter will be… Teaira McCowan’s professional debut? Pretty good chance, one way or another.

We get out first WNBA Finals rematch on Friday, June 14, when Seattle visits Washington. The Liberty, who played last season’s two weekday morning games at Madison Square Garden, have two once again, June 4 against Los Angeles, and August 13 against Minnesota, though the schedule lists the arena for each game right now as “Arena TBD”.
As for old acquaintances: Brian Agler’s Wings face Los Angeles on July 9 in Dallas, another camp day game. Let’s not forget, it was on such a day against the Liberty last season that Liz Cambage scored 53 points.
Other tasty early-season games include Washington at Connecticut on May 25, Seattle at Minnesota May 29, Atlanta at Washington June 1 and Connecticut at Las Vegas June 2.
The overall season is going to run at a far more reasonable pace, without the FIBA World Cup to force an expedited season. Opening night in May 24, while the regular season ends on Sunday, September 8.
