Pre and Post Game Interviews
In accordance with WNBA policy, the Sky and the visitors locker rooms will be open to members of the media for 30 minutes ending 1 hour before the start of the game (e.g., media access shall be granted from 6:00-6:30 P.M. for a 7:30pm game). Locker rooms are re-opened to the media after the game following a 10-minute cooling down period and will remain open for 30 minutes. Players and coaches are available for interviews at those times. Only working members of the press with valid credentials will be admitted to the locker rooms.
Game Notes and Statistics
Game notes, rosters, etc. are available in the press room 2 hours prior to game time. Statistics are distributed to the working media at the conclusion of each quarter as well as first half boxes and final boxes. Post-game quotes are distributed as quickly as possible following the game.
Limited space is available for still photographers along each baseline, with exact locations to be determined on game day. Photographers must stay in their designated areas, and are asked to be considerate of print media and fans directly in their viewing area.
Approximately the final 30 minutes of each practice will be open to the media, with players and coaches available for brief interviews immediately following practice. Please contact Kelly Kane to confirm practice times, sites and the availability of players and coaches.
