Mercury to Host "White Out" for Game 2

Posted: September 25, 2013

PHOENIX – The Mercury is rising, and so are the stakes. The Phoenix Mercury will host Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday, September 29 at US Airways Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. The 2013 Mercury playoffs are presented by Carl’s Jr. Franchisee.

More than 11,000 screaming members of the X-Factor attended the Mercury's first playoff home game Saturday, and to add to what is already the league's best home court advantage, the Mercury is asking fans to wear white and create a “white out” at US Airways Center this Sunday. The first 3,000 fans in attendance will receive a white “Run With Us” 2013 Mercury playoffs t-shirt, courtesy of Carl’s Jr. (see image of shirt below and attached). In addition, the first 3,500 fans will also receive white pom-poms.

The Mercury are in the Western Conference Finals for the fourth time in the last five seasons (2009, 2010, 2011, 2013), and for the fifth time since the league adopted a three-round playoff format.

Phoenix will take on the Minnesota Lynx in a best-of-three series beginning Thursday, Sept. 26 at Target Center.
