Tanisha Wright bobblehead part of Storm ticket deals


The coolest part of the Storm’s new season-ticket sales launch isn’t mentioned in the release. The first 2,000 to renew get a Tanisha Wright bobblehead doll, the “Decade of Defense” edition.

Smart of the Storm to tie her bobblehead to this ticket promo. Storm Crazies have been waiting for this honor for Wright for about five years. Guessing the little memorabilia is enticing enough to make the most disgruntled fan renew despite this inconsistent Storm season that has Seattle toward the bottom of the Western Conference.

Four Membership Profiles Create Customized Storm Basketball Experience

SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm today announced Storm 360°, a holistic, customized membership program allowing Storm fans to select benefits that cater to their desired Storm Basketball experience.

“This is an exciting platform that offers Storm fans year-round benefits and access,” said Storm Chief Operating Officer Alisha Valavanis. “We have focused efforts on creating individualized profiles for fans to express their passion for Storm Basketball.”

Fans can choose from four membership profiles; Super Fan, Family, Flex and Corporate. The Super Fan profile celebrates the passionate, loyal Storm fan that enjoys exclusive access to Storm players and coaches, including an invitation to attend one pregame shoot around and private chalk talk with the head coach. The Family profile is designed to enhance young Storm Basketball fans’ experiences, including basketball and dance clinic invitations and postgame autograph passes at one Storm game.  With the Flex profile, fans who boast busy summer schedules have the flexibility to make the most of their profile with eighteen tickets to use how and when they choose. Lastly, the Corporate profile offers business owners a chance to entertain prospects and bonus employees.

In addition to the specific membership profiles, all members will receive a Storm 360° membership card, a customized game-day credential and the ability to partake in a flexible ticket exchange program, an online resale program for games that don’t align with busy schedules. All members will also have the first chance to purchase Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament all-tournament passes at a discounted rate.

Storm 360° offers additional benefits for those who select courtside seats and for those who are Emerald Members (five-plus seasons as a Storm Season Ticket Holder) and Legacy Members (ten-plus season with the Storm).

In addition to the current four-month and pay-in-full options already in place, Storm 360° adds a 10-month payment option, allowing for the choice to spread out the payments over 10-consecutive months spanning Aug. 1 through May 1.

Fans can make the switch to Storm 360° starting today, by visiting or by calling (206) 217-WNBA (9622).
