The WNBA and Twitter announced today that they have renewed a deal for 10 live regular season games to stream on Twitter during the 2020 season. This will be the fourth consecutive year that WNBA games will stream on the platform.
Along with lie coverage, the WNBA will broadcast commentary from basketball analysts including LaChina Robinson and Ros Gold-Onwude. Fans will be able to interact with the commentators on Twitter during the games.
“Twitter continues to be an integral part of the WNBA’s media landscape and providing innovation on their platform during this unique season will elevate fan engagement to a whole new level,” said WNBA Commissioner Cathy Engelbert. “This continued partnership enables our passionate supporters and fans to connect directly to our game and to experience WNBA basketball from wherever they are.”

“WNBA fans on Twitter are passionate about their hoops – and these hyper-engaged fans continue to fuel an increased popularity of the league,” said TJ Adeshola, Head of Sports Partnerships, Twitter. “The W has been a top sports partner of ours for many years and we’re pumped to offer live WNBA games, with a Twitter twist, to basketball fans across the globe. Whether it’s a smooth step-back 3-pointer or compelling commentary on social justice, one thing is for sure – the conversation around WNBA players, teams and their fans is happening on Twitter.”
