Aces Sell Out Regular-Season Home Games in WNBA First

  • The team is valued at roughly $140 million.
  • Las Vegas is going for its third WNBA title in a row.

The Las Vegas Aces’ slow start continues to have no impact on the box office. 

They recently became the first team in league history to sell out all of their regular-season home games, the team said Thursday.

The announcement comes after the team sold out season tickets in April, which was another first among WNBA teams and left only single-game tickets available. 

At 7–6, the two-time defending champions are off to an uncharacteristically slow start. Eight of those 13 games have been at home, leaving 12 home dates left. Two of them—against Caitlin Clark’s Indiana Fever and Angel Reese’s Chicago Sky—have been moved to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which at 18,000 seats is about 50% larger than where they typically play, the Michelob Ultra Arena.

According to the Associated Press, the Sept. 3 Sky game was the Aces’ last remaining home game with tickets available until they were purchased Thursday. 

In 2023, the Aces led the league in attendance, with an average of 9,551 fans per game. The Aces’ 2023 regular-season finale against the Phoenix Mercury also drew the highest single-game attendance with 17,406 at T-Mobile Arena. 

Earlier this week Las Vegas was named the WNBA’s most valuable franchise by Sportico at an estimated $140 million. Mark Davis paid just $2 million for the team in 2021 when he bought the Aces from MGM Resorts International.
