WNBA Is Set For A 22-Game Season

The WNBA and the WNBA players union have agreed to play a 22-game season.

The league has an agreement with IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida to host all regular season and postseason games. The playoff format will remain single-elimination games for the first and second rounds, and then five-game series for the semifinals and WNBA Finals.

"It's not just about the money, it's symbolic in a lot of ways, a symbolism that carries on from our CBA. We asked our league and others to bet on women, and our league has shown they are doing that. It's huge on an individual level for players, but also on the grand scheme." - Nneka Ogwumike, Los Angeles Sparks

The WNBA players will get 100% of their salary for the 2020 season.
