Caitlin Clark makes history AGAIN! Fever’s clash against A’ja Wilson and the Aces smashes 25-year-old WNBA attendance record

The Tuesday night clash starring Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever against the Las Vegas Aces broke several attendance records as the former Iowa‘s Hawkeye’s stardom continues to rise.

A stampede of 20,366 fans packed Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena to witness the rookie sensation take on A’Ja Wilson and the defending champions for the second time this season – a game the Aces would win 88-69.

The game boasted the fifth highest attendance in WNBA regular season history and the most since the 1999 season.

Tuesday’s showdown was 308 spectators shy of breaking the WNBA record of 20,674 in a game between the Washington Mystics and the Cleveland Rockers in 1999.

Aside from smashing the record at T-Mobile Arena, it was also the first WNBA game to surpass 19,500 fans outside Verizon Center/Capital One Arena in Washington or Madison Square Garden in New York. Both venues hosted 14 of the 15 most-attended games in league history.

Clark’s effect on the WNBA continues to be felt as viewership and attendance numbers continue to skyrocket throughout the season.

Only two games have been attended by more than 20,000 fans and both featured the Fever. Aside from the clash at Sin City, their road game against the Mystics on June 7 brought 20,333 fans to the seats.

The WNBA’s spike in attendance began when approximately 400,000 fans attended games from the tip of the season through the end of May. The number makes for the most ticket sales through the first month of the season in 26 years.
