The WNBA announced the 2023 regular season schedule on Wednesday where each team will play a total of 40 regular season games, the most ever in a WNBA season.
The regular season will run from mid-May thru the second week of September.
“We eagerly anticipate tipping off the 2023 season and building on the success of last season, which was our most-watched in 14 years and set records for social media engagement, digital consumption and merchandise sales,” said WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert.
“The expanded schedule will provide fans greater opportunities to see the best players in the world compete on the game’s biggest stage.”
For the second straight season, the Dallas Wings will begin their campaign against the Atlanta Dream, this time under first-year head coach Latricia Trammell at College Park Center on Saturday, May 20. It’s also the fourth time the Wings have played the Dream in a respective opener since the franchise moved to Dallas.
The All-Star Game will take place on July 15 and the third annual Commissioner’s Cup — the in-season tournament — will take place from May 19-July 12.
