Announcement of the WNBA Twitter streaming schedule is akin to Christmas morning for women’s basketball fans, and Sunday May 20 promises to deliver.
The league press release states:
“The action on Twitter will start with the Las Vegas Aces visiting the Connecticut Sun at 1 p.m. ET, followed by the Dallas Wings hosting the Atlanta Dream at 3 p.m. ET. Later, the New York Liberty will visit the Chicago Sky at 7 p.m. ET and the Phoenix Mercury will host the Seattle Storm at 9 p.m. ET.”
2018 WNBA Schedule: Live Games on Twitter
May 20 is a #WNBAAllDay affair, so check your local listings for information on where other games are airing that day.
According to the statement by the league, in its first season of streaming games on Twitter, “the WNBA averaged 613,000 unique viewers per game for its 20-game schedule. The Mercury vs. the Wings (5/14/17), the San Antonio Stars vs. the Wings (5/25/17) and the Mercury vs. the Minnesota Lynx (7/14/17) were the three most-viewed games of the 2017 season, averaging 1.1 million unique viewers.”
Those are great numbers.
But who’s interested in helping the WNBA to an average of 1 million unique viewers per game in the 2018 season?
