The Atlanta Dream returns to playing downtown at the new State Farm Arena during the 2019 season.

“I’m thrilled for our organization to have the opportunity to be back in State Farm Arena,” head coach Nicki Collen said. “The renovations have made it a world class venue and l know our fans are going to be excited to experience all it has to offer. Our objective is to make it the best home court environment in the WNBA and we will need the fans to make that happen.”

After playing the last two seasons at McCamish Pavilion at Georgia Tech, the Dream will return to the court where the team played from 2008-2016 and reached three WNBA Finals.

From the team:

State Farm Arena, formerly Philips Arena and home of the Atlanta Hawks, opened its doors following the completion of the $192.5 million-dollar renovation this past October. The transformed arena features the third-largest center-hung scoreboard in the NBA and most immersive video experience, new sightlines with 360-degree concourses and new seating and first-of-its-kind in-venue entertainment options with Topgolf Swing Suites, the company’s first permanent amenity in a major sports arena and Killer Mike’s SWAG Shop (a 4-chair barbershop overlooking the court). State Farm Arena will also be the first NBA venue to offer fan-friendly food pricing with 12 popular food and beverage items priced at $5 or less.
