The Liberty’s 20th Anniversary season will see five of the first six games of the year take place at The Garden.
After the home opener against the Dallas Wings, the Los Angeles Sparks will visit New York on Saturday, May 21, at 6 p.m., followed by the Liberty’s School Day game against the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday, May 24, at 11 a.m. The defending WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx come to town on Tuesday, May 31, at 8 p.m., and the Indiana Fever makes its first stop at Madison Square Garden on Friday, June 3, at 7:30 p.m.
Playing at The Garden twice will be the Atlanta Dream, Connecticut Sun, Dallas Wings, Phoenix Mercury, Seattle Storm, and Indiana Fever; for Liberty fans, this provides an additional opportunity to see league legend Tamika Catchings, during what she has announced will be her final WNBA season.
With several WNBA stars expected to represent their countries in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro (August 5-21), the league has not scheduled any competition from July 23-August 24, similar to the 2004, 2008, and 2012 seasons that featured a break for the Olympics.
Following the break, the Liberty returns to action at San Antonio on August 26.
The regular season wraps up on Friday, Sept. 16, when the Liberty travels to Chicago.
