Disney on Ice Forces WNBA Finals to Relocate From Atlanta

wnba finals
The WNBA Finals had a bit of a scheduling snafu: The Minnesota Lynx are playing the Atlanta Dream in a best of five series, but I guess Phillips Arena in Atlanta didn’t anticipate the team advancing this far, because their home court advantage is not available.

Because of Disney on Ice.

The Dream’s usual home, Philips Arena, isn’t available for the WNBA Finals because it has “Disney on Ice: Let’s Celebrate!” in town.

The Dream will host Game 3 Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8:30 p.m. at the Gwinnett arena, as well as Game 4 if necessary Sunday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. Both of those games are planned for ESPN2.

The Gwinnett Arena is about 35 minutes Northeast of Atlanta in the town of Duluth. [via Gwinnett Daily]
