Thanks to the Seattle Storm, professional basketball lives on in the Emerald City. The Storm are a mainstay on the local scene bringing the best in women’s professional basketball as a perennial powerhouse of the WNBA. Established in 2000 and backed by an all-female ownership group, the Storm have twelve playoff appearances under their belt and three championships in 2004, 2010, and 2018. The Storm are an unforgettable team to watch at Alaska Airlines Arena at the University of Washington, the Storm’s temporary home while the Seattle Center arena is under renovation.
2018 WNBA All-Stars Jewell Loyd, league and Finals MVP Breanna Stewart, and veteran Olympic gold medalist Sue Bird along with the rest of the Seattle Storm seek a back-to-back championship in 2019. At every home game, an all-kid dance squad leads a conga line of young fans during time-outs to “C’mon N’ Ride It (The Train)” by Quad City DJ’s.
Home to the Seattle Storm, this multi-purpose arena is located north of downtown in the Seattle Center. Located in the shadow of the iconic Space Needle, Seattle Center Arena (previously KeyArena) is currently under renovation. Once it is complete, the new arena will host the Seattle Storm and WNBA basketball; host professional hockey beginning in the fall of 2021provide a home for the NBA if a team returns to Seattle; increase the number of top-tier arena concerts and family entertainment events at Seattle Center; and establish Seattle as home to one of the premier, historic live-entertainment venues in the world.
