MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – The Minnesota Lynx today announced their first two home games during the 2016 WNBA Playoffs will be played at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, due to scheduling conflicts at Target Center. The games will take place in late September.
The Lynx have clinched home court advantage throughout the WNBA playoffs and as a result, the team will receive a bye through the first two single-elimination rounds. They will begin with home court advantage in the WNBA semifinals. The semifinal round is a best-of-five format, guaranteeing at least two home games for the Lynx.
Two-game playoff packs go on sale on Thursday, September 15 at 10 a.m. and include tickets to each of these first two home games. Ticket packs can be purchased Thursday on lynxbasketball.com/tickets.
The Xcel Energy Center will also be the team’s venue for home games for the 2017 season as Target Center renovation work is completed.
