Sun sells out its first opener in decades as Caitlin Clark makes her debut

Caitlin Clark’s first game of the regular season promises to be an unmissable event in the WNBA. However, securing a ticket for Tuesday’s game has become considerably more challenging.

The Connecticut Sun made an exciting announcement on Monday, revealing that their highly anticipated home opener against the Indiana Fever is officially sold out. A total of 8,910 tickets have been sold, marking a significant milestone for the team. This is the first time the Sun has achieved a sellout for a home opener since their inaugural game in Connecticut back in 2003. The overwhelming support from fans is a testament to the Sun’s popularity and the excitement surrounding their upcoming season.

Interest in Rennia Clark is rapidly growing as she continues to make waves in the basketball world. The former University of Iowa standout and top pick in the recent WNBA draft is captivating audiences everywhere. At her first home game against the Atlanta Dream, a staggering 13,000 fans showed up to support her. Even her preseason game in Dallas was a sellout. Clark’s talent and charisma are clearly attracting a lot of attention.

Opponents are moving games to larger venues to accommodate ticket sales due to the curiosity surrounding Clark. The Fever team, which hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2016, will now have 36 of its 40 regular-season games televised nationally, including on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).

Playing in front of a packed arena has become a regular occurrence for Clark, who has wholeheartedly embraced her new city.

“After Thursday’s game, Clark expressed his enthusiasm for the competitive nature of the sport. He emphasized the thrill of facing new challenges every night and the opportunity to bounce back from a tough game. According to Clark, the ability to respond and improve after a setback is what makes it the best part of the game.”
