WNBA Announces 22-Game Regular Season, Players to Receive 100% Pay

With the NBA nearing a return, the WNBA has announced that they will have a 22-game regular season starting in late July at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

Despite playing in 22 instead of 36 games, the league has re-assured that players will receive 100 percent of their salary.

“It’s not just about the money, it’s symbolic in a lot of ways,” Los Angeles Sparks forward Nneka Ogwumike, president of the players’ executive committee, said. “It’s 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.”

The playoff format will see single-elimination games for the first two rounds, while the semifinals and the finals will be made up of two best of five-game series. The Washington Mystics led by Elena Delle Donne will enter the season as the defending league champions.

An additional rule that the WNBA has implemented for the season is that all players with at least five years of experience in the league could bring a significant “plus-one” to the bubble site.
