The following is the complete 2020 Regular Season schedule for the Seattle Storm.
The Storm are entering their 21st 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.
With the new CBA in place, the 2020 WNBA season will expand to 36 games (18 home, 18 away). The increase in two games is the first schedule increase since the league went from 32 games to 34 back in 2003.
The Storm's home arena, KeyArena, is still undergoing renovations for as a hockey and basketball venue since 2019. As was the case in 2019, the 2020 Storm will call two arenas "home" during the season; Alaska Airlines Arena, located on the University of Washington campus, will host the first 10 home games of the regular season. Angel of the Winds Arena, located 28 miles north in Everett, Washington, will host the remaining 8 games of the season. Should the Storm host during the 2020 WNBA playoffs, the venue is still to be determined. Last season, the Storm played their home playoff game at Alaska Airlines Arena.
The Storm look to rebound in 2020 after a disastrous start to the 2019 season after losing its top two stars to injury for the entire season. Forward Breanna Stewart, the 2018 WNBA MVP, ruptured her Achilles tendon while playing overseas, while future Hall of Fame guard Sue Bird sat out after undergoing arthroscopic surgery in her knee. Both should make much needed contributions to a Storm team that fought every step of the way to finish the season at 18-16, finishing the season at 3rd in the Western Conference. The Storm made the playoffs as the #6 seed, defeating Minnesota in the First Round of the Playoffs before falling to Los Angeles in the Second Round. Seattle's head coach, Dan Hughes, will be returning for his third season at the helm, going 44-24 during his regular season tenure. His 44 regular season wins are the 3rd most wins in Storm team history behind Anne Donovan (93 wins) and Brian Agler (136 wins)
Seattle will tip-off their season on May 15th against the Dallas Wings at Alaska Airlines Arena. The Storm will hit the road to take on the Phoenix Mercury, who are playing the 2020 season (and potentially the 2021 season) at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum due to renovations at Talking Stick Resort Arena.
The longest road trip of the season will take place at the start of June, where Seattle will hit the road for 6 straight games, beginning on the east coast against the 2019 WNBA Champion Washington Mystics whom the Storm defeated in the 2018 WNBA Finals. Settle will then take on the Connecticut Sun, New York Liberty, fly west to Los Angeles to take on the Sparks, and then finish the road trip against the Dallas Wings.
With the Olympics to take place in Tokyo this summer, the Storm will play their final game of the season July 10th at Phoenix. The Storm, as well as the rest of the league, will resume the season in mid-August, with Seattle hosting the Las Vegas Aces at Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett to tip off the Everett half of the home schedule.
