As the 2023 calendar year comes to a close, it’s officially time to look ahead to 2024 and the upcoming year in the WNBA.

On Monday, the Minnesota Lynx and the rest of the league announced their regular season schedules for the new year, which will once again feature a 40-game schedule for the second consecutive season.

Minnesota opens up its regular season on May 14 on the road against the Seattle Storm at 9 p.m. CT, the 10th time in team history the Lynx will open the season away from home. Minnesota will host its first regular season game of the year against Seattle at 8:30 p.m. CT on May 17 in Minneapolis.

The WNBA regular season will span from May 14 to Sept. 19, with the first half of the regular season concluding July 17 before a near month-long break due to the Olympic Games and the All-Star Game. This is the first year that the All-Star Game will be played in the same year as the Olympics. The second half of the regular season begins on Aug. 15 before the regular-season finale on Sept. 19.

In 2024, the Commissioner’s Cup will be in a new format and structure with all of those games being played between June 1-13. Minnesota, like all 12 WNBA teams, will have five Commissioner’s Cup games during that span.

Prior to the start of the start of the regular season, the Lynx will have two preseason games the week before the regular season tips off. Minnesota will host the Chicago Sky on May 4 at Target Center before concluding the preseason slate with a road game against the Washington Mystics on May 8.

The Lynx will announce their full broadcast schedule for the 2024 season at a later date.
