Washington Mystics

5 Reasons to Attend a Washington Mystics Game

Check out DC's WNBA team at Entertainment and Sports Arena.

Over the past decade, the Washington Mystics have been one of the premier franchises in the WNBA, with a 2019 championship to show for it. Entertainment & Sports Arena serves as the team’s home court, the newest addition to Washington, DC's sports venue landscape. So grab your tickets and get ready to cheer on a WNBA powerhouse.


The Mystics play in a state-of-the-art arena.

Prior to the 2019 season, the Mystics played their home games at Capital One Arena, sharing it with the NHL’s Washington Capitals and the NBA’s Washington Wizards. Now, the talented squad has the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Congress Heights to call home. The 4,200-seat arena provides an intimate atmosphere for Mystics fans to cheer on their favorite team, and in turn, a true homecourt advantage for one of the best teams in the WNBA. Note that on June 7, the Mystics will play a home game at Capital One Arena against the Indiana Fever, who feature new superstar Caitlyn Clark.


The team is filled with can't-miss talent

In the 2024 WNBA Draft, the Mystics added Aaliyah Edwards from the University of Connecticut to a frontcourt that already features star Shakira Austin. Led by head coach Eric Thibault, the roster also features Brittney Sykes, who’s coming off a career year in which she averaged career-highs in points (15.9), rebounds (5.9), assists (3.8) and steals (2.1) and was named to the WNBA’s All-Defensive First Team. The core also includes Olympian Ariel Atkins and offseason additions in Stefanie Dolson and Karlie Samuelson.


The Mystics are always in contention.

The Mystics are always in the mix in the WNBA's Eastern Conference. The team has qualified for the postseason nine times in the past 11 years, marking the most successful run in franchise history. That stretch includes a 2019 championship as well as a trip to the WNBA Finals in 2018. The basketball is always competitive at Entertainment & Sports Arena.


The schedule always features outstanding matchups.

Some of the WNBA’s best teams and players will visit the Entertainment & Sports Arena this summer to take on the Mystics in what promises to be a rowdy environment. Visit the team's website for a full 2024 schedule as the group aims to return to the WNBA Playoffs.
