The Most Popular WNBA Teams in Each State

April 10, 2023 by Madison Marx

Since the WNBA’s inception in 1996, WNBA fans have seen some remarkable teams take the court across the country.  

The Connecticut Sun, Dallas Wings and Seattle Storm are the most popular WNBA teams in the country, according to a map powered by Vivid Seats WNBA ticket sales data.  

To find the most popular WNBA team in your state, view the interactive map below:

Connecticut Suns Dominate the Northeast

Connecticut’s fandom footprint stretches far beyond The Constitution State.  

The Suns are the most popular team throughout most of the Northeast, claiming Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.  

In the women’s college basketball scene, UConn has a similar hold on the region. Geno Auriemma’s program is responsible for sending household names like Sue Bird, Rebecca Lobo and Dianna Taurasi to the WNBA.  

Minnesota Lynx Own the Midwest

After the Sun, Wings and Storm, the Minnesota Lynx follow in popularity.  

Led by Sylvia Fowles for the past seven years, the Lynx dominate their respective state while enjoying a foothold in adjacent states as well.  

The Lynx enjoyed a nearly unparalleled level of success throughout the 2010s, making a league-record six appearances in seven years and winning four championships.      

Top Teams, Top Talent

There’s no shortage of excitement to see some of the top players who are driving success for the WNBA.  

According to Vivid Seats, the average ticket price for the WNBA All Star Game has increased +301% over the past five seasons.  

However, the excitement for WNBA tickets doesn’t stop at All-star weekend. Top teams who have had success on the court and at the box office include:  

  • Reigning WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces have seen a +71% in average ticket price after acquiring two-time MVP Candace Parker. 
  • The average ticket price for the Chicago Sky, who won its first WNBA championship trophy in 2021, surged +129% since 2016. 
  • With stars like Sue Bird, who led the Seattle Storm over a two-decade period, it comes as no surprise that the Storm have experienced a +235% price increase in average ticket prices since 2016.
