The Most Popular WNBA Team in Each State

May 02, 2024 by Vivid Seats

The WNBA is about to experience one of the most exciting seasons yet as anticipation grows from new and old fans alike. 

For the past several years, interest in the league has affected everything from viewership to ticket prices. Demand for the 2024 WNBA season has already begun as the average ticket price for the preseason has increased 140% since last season and 132% for the regular season. 

The growing popularity of the WNBA comes as no surprise as the league has long boosted incredible star-power from players like Brittney Griner, Breanna Stewart and more.

Since the WNBA’s inception, fans have fallen in love with players and teams. The reigning WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces are not only one of the most accomplished WNBA teams in recent years, they are also No. 1 with the fans. 

The Las Vegas Aces, Indiana Fever and Connecticut Sun are the most popular WNBA teams in America according to a map powered by Vivid Seats WNBA ticket sales data. 

To find the most popular WNBA team in your state, and to get hyped for the upcoming season, view the interactive map below:

Are the Las Vegas Aces ready to three-peat? 

Led by veterans such as A’ja Wilson, Chelsea Grey, and Kelsey Plum, the Las Vegas Aces are the most popular team in nine states. Unsurprisingly they have a very strong fan presence in their home state of Nevada, while also enjoying a foothold in adjacent states.

The Las Vegas Aces have enjoyed a nearly unparalleled level of success over the past few years, winning two back-to-back WNBA Finals. While 16-year veteran Candace Parker isn’t returning to the team, that won’t stop the Aces from setting out to win its third straight title. 

Let the Caitlin Clark era begin 

After the Fever drafted No.1 pick Caitlin Clark, they jumped in popularity going from being the most popular team in just two states to six states. 

Caitlin Clark and Aliyah Boston, the 2023 No. 1 pick, aim to lead the Fever to their first playoff berth since 2016. And, they’ll have plenty of fans cheering them on as they look to achieve this feat. Currently, Clark and the Fever make up the top ten hottest WNBA tickets this season:
