Storm to play 5 homes game, including opener, in Everett

The defending WNBA champions will open the season on May 25 at Angel of the Winds Arena.

The defending WNBA champions are calling Everett a second home in 2019.

The Seattle Storm announced its 2019 regular-season schedule on Tuesday and it includes five games at Angel of the Winds Arena. The Storm will play the rest of their 17-game home slate at Alaska Airlines Arena on the University of Washington’s campus as Key Arena is under construction in preparation for the National Hockey League expanding to Seattle in 2021.

The Storm’s regular-season opener against the Phoenix Mercury will be played in Everett on May 25 at 12:30 p.m. and will be televised on ABC. The succeeding two home games against Minnesota and Los Angeles will also be played in Everett. The Storm will return to Angel of the Winds for home contests against Washington on Aug. 2 and Dallas on Aug. 8.

Seattle won its third WNBA Championship in 2018 after sweeping Washington, 3-0, in the finals.
