The following is the complete 2019 Regular Season schedule for the Seattle Storm.
The Storm are entering their 20th Season as members of the WNBA. The Storm play in the Western Conference, along with the Dallas Wings, Los Angeles Sparks, Minnesota Lynx, Las Vegas Aces, and the Phoenix Mercury. The Storm's home arena, KeyArena, will be undergoing renovations for as a hockey & basketball venue for the next two seasons. As a result, the Storm will play 12 games at Alaska Airlines Arena, located on the University of Washington campus, and five home games at Angel of the Winds Arena, located 28 miles north in Everett, Washington.
With a talented core of players such as Breanna Stewart, Sue Bird, and Jewel Lloyd, the Storm look to defend its 2018 WNBA Championship. Last year, under the leadership of veteran head coach Dan Hughes, the Storm finished with a 26-8 record, the second best record in franchise history and finished 1st in the Western Conference for the first time since 2010. In the playoffs, the Storm went to the limit against the rival Phoenix Mercury, defeating Phoenix 3-2 in the Best-of-Five Conference Semifinal. The Storm would sweep the Eastern Champion Washington Mystics 3-0 to capture the WNBA Championship, the third championship in team history (2004, 2010).
The Storm seek to defend their title and become the first team since the 2002 Los Angeles Sparks to repeat as back-to-back champions. However, the journey back to the WNBA Championship will be difficult after losing Breanna Stewart to a ruptured Achilles injury she sustained playing overseas in April and is expected to miss the entire 2019 Season.
Seattle will tip-off their season on May 25th against the Phoenix Mercury in Everett. The Storm will hit the road after the season opener with a three-game trip before returning to Everett on June 4 against the Minnesota Lynx. Seattle will then hit the road for a season long four-game road trip before returning to Everett on June 21 against the Los Angeles Sparks.
Seattle will open up at its primary home, Alaska Airlines Arena, on June 23 against the Indiana Fever before hitting the road against the Las Vegas Aces on June 25. Seattle will then return home for six-consecutive games, the longest stretch at home in 2018. After the All-Star Break, the Storm will play its next two home games in Everett before finishing the rest of the home regular season schedule at Alaska Airlines Arena.
One of the biggest games of the season will occur on July 19th as the Las Vegas Aces make their only trip to Seattle this season. The game, played at Alaska Airlines Arena on the University of Washington campus, will be significant as the Storm's Sami Whitcomb and the Aces' Kelsey Plum are both UW graduates.
