Dallas Wings Tickets
Originally founded in 1998 as one of the first expansions teams of the WNBA, the Dallas Wings has a strong championship history dating back to its previous years in Detroit when it was known as the Shock. Led by Piston great Bill Laimbeer, who guaranteed a championship, the 2003 team accomplished one of the greatest turnarounds in WNBA history. It went from last to first place and beat the defending champions the LA Sparks in the WNBA Finals. The 83-78 game three victory drew the largest crowd in league history at 22,076. Between 2006 and 2008, the Shock made three consecutive finals, beating Sacramento in five games, then losing to Phoenix in five and finally beating San Antonio in three. After the franchise was sold off to new ownership, it relocated to Tulsa for the 2010 season and made it as far as the conference semifinals. The franchise then moved to Dallas for the 2016 season with a strong foundation of Odyssey Sims and Skylar Diggins-Smith. StubHub is a reliable source for Dallas Wings tickets to all home and road games.
