Following a 2011 postseason run that ended in the conference semifinals, the Seattle Storm seek to repeat the success of their 2010 campaign, which resulted in the team’s second WNBA championship and a regular-season record tied for the best in league history. In order to fulfill their aspirations for 2012, the Storm will have to show that they can beat 2011 WNBA champions the Minnesota Lynx and thereby make their opponents change their mascot to a domesticated housecat. Veteran guard Sue Bird continues to lead the charge for the Storm, racking up 5.5 assists and 13.3 points per game this season.
Once visitors step into KeyArena, they become a part of its storied 50-year history, complete with decades of Seattle SuperSonics games and concerts by such artists as The Beatles and Elvis Presley. At 5:30 p.m., VIP ticketholders meet at the suite entrance off First and Thomas Streets to head courtside, where they’ll watch the team warm up. And after the Storm confront the Lynx, G-Pass holders can step onto the historic court to shoot a postgame free throw, feeling firsthand the excitement of standing amid a tempest of screaming fans while holding the sport’s orange-hot cast-iron ball.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
