The Washington Mystics are restricting their online ticket sales for their WNBA Finals home games to residents of the “DMV”, which consists of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, according to ESPNW’s Mechelle Voepel.
“We wanted to ensure hometown fans with a DMV address had access to the very limited seating that was available for single-game tickets through the team,” Mystics team spokeswoman Ketsia Colimon said. “And make sure the bond between locals and the venue was strong. We ensured a strong home-court advantage.
“Resale seats on Ticketmaster and other third-party sites did not have a zip-code restriction, so fans not in the DMV were still able to purchase seats through these sites.”
While Colimon pointed out that this was the first time that the Mystics have done this in regards to ticket sales, she added that the Mystics’ owner, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, has enacted similar policies for its other professional sports teams, such as the NHL’s Capitals and the NBA’s Wizards, at Capital One Arena.
