You don’t have to go to a galaxy far, far away to attend a Star Wars-themed WNBA game.  You can actually stay in this universe.  Specifically, you can attend a Connecticut Sun game at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.  Because this year, the Connecticut Sun will be hosting the WNBA’s first-ever Star Wars Game!

That means you can be part of history by attending the game.  It also means that you get to meet characters from the Star Wars universe during the game.  This can be a pretty awesome experience, especially for anyone who is both a big Sun and a big Star Wars fan.

This game takes place on Sunday, July 30, 2023.  The Sun will be playing the Minnesota Lynx, who have been hot lately so it should be a good game.  The game begins at 1:00 PM, so if you want to take your kids you won’t have to worry about it being past their bedtime.

But you’re going to want to get there earlier than 1:00 PM.  That is because the first 2,500 fans will receive a Star Wars-themed Connecticut Sun T-Shirt!

So you’ll definitely want to buy your ticket before you show up to the game.  Especially because you can find a cheap ticket to the game here.

What to Wear

Want to show your support for the Connecticut Sun to the game?  You can find great Connecticut Sun merchandise here, including jerseys, hats, shirts, etc.

And if you want to show off your love of Star Wars, you can find great Star Wars merchandise here, including shirts, hoodies, jackets, etc.

Where to Stay

Something I’ve always loved about the Connecticut Sun is where they play.  With their games at the Mohegan Sun Arena, you can stay at the Mohegan Sun Hotel which makes for a really nice weekend.  After all, this is a hotel that for the last five years has been named the Best Casino Hotel in USA Today’s Reader Choice Awards.

Highlights of this resort include:

  • 8 holes of golf
  • A casino with 5000 slot machines & 300 gaming tables
