The Atlanta Dream are the latest WNBA team to accommodate attendance demands for visits by the Indiana Fever and rookie sensation Caitlin Clark.

The Dream announced Thursday that home dates against the Fever on June 21 and Aug. 26 will be played at State Farm Arena, home of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.

State Farm Arena holds more than 17,000 fans for basketball, compared to 3,500 for the Gateway Center Arena in College Park, Ga.

The record attendance for a Dream game is 11,609, set at their inaugural contest at Phillips Arena in 2008 against the Detroit Shock.

The Los Angeles Sparks, Las Vegas Aces and Washington Mystics previously announced plans to host Clark and the Fever in larger venues.

Clark was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft after breaking the all-time Division I scoring record — for men and women — at the University of Iowa.
