Fan Appreciation Night: 8/16

Posted: August 12, 2014

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Mercury will host Fan Appreciation Night when the club takes on the Los Angeles Sparks in its final regular season home game on Saturday, August 16 at US Airways Center. Tip-off is set for 7p.m.

In an effort to thank the “Best Fans in the WNBA,” the first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a unique slip-on Brittney Griner tattoo sleeve, created to match the likeness of her arm tattoos.

During the game, fans will also be thanked for their continuous support through giveaways, in-game messaging and activities.

Owners of the best record in the league (26-4) and a franchise-record 26 victories, the Mercury has won four consecutive games following a franchise-record 16-game win streak, the second-longest in WNBA history. The team opens the final week of the regular season tonight in New York (4 p.m. Phoenix time) and next plays at home this Saturday, Aug. 16 vs. Los Angeles. The Mercury will host the first game of the 2014 WNBA Playoffs at US Airways Center on either Thursday, Aug. 21 or Friday, Aug. 22. Tickets for all Mercury games are available at or by calling 602.252.WNBA.
