Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) side Seattle Storm has begun season tickets sales for the 2024 campaign and has already registered a franchise record renewal rate.
The Storm is heading into its 25th anniversary season and will be looking for a return to the play-offs after failing to qualify this year for the first time since 2015.
“We saw incredible fan support during the 2023 season and are thrilled to see such an impressive renewal rate for the upcoming season,” said Seattle Storm’s chief sales officer Kyle Waters.
“Storm fans are the best in the league, and we are excited to see them come back and support the team again in 2024.”
Fans are able to secure their 2024 season ticket memberships now and can select their seats immediately for all 21 home games. Single game tickets, mini plans and group experiences will then go on sale early next year.
The Storm saw a record number of fans sign up for season ticket memberships prior to the 2023 season before ranking among the league’s top three in attendance figures.
A total of 178,581 fans came to matches, which saw the side place behind only the champions Las Vegas Aces and Phoenix Mercury with overall crowds of 191,024 and 183,935, respectively.
Last season saw Seattle finish 11th in the 12-team division with 11 wins and 29 losses. Despite this, the franchise has secured a two-year contract extension for scoring leader Jewell Loyd of the United States.
The 30-year-old Olympic champion broke the all-time season record for points on 939 at an average of 24.7 per game.
Seattle also holds a top four pick for the WNBA Draft in March to bolster its squad before the season schedule is released.
