Washington Mystics Announce Broadcast Information for 2020 Season
WASHINGTON D.C. – The 2019 WNBA Champion Washington Mystics today announced its comprehensive 22-game schedule of live coverage for the 2020 season, which begins Saturday, July 25 vs. Indiana (5 p.m.) As previously announced, WNBA teams will play an abbreviated season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The entire schedule of Mystics games will be available on Monumental Sports Network (MSN), which is presented by WGL, and NBC Sports Washington (NBCSW), except for three nationally televised games on ESPN and ESPN2. This is the first season NBCSW, in partnership with MSN, is scheduled to simulcast all non-nationally exclusive Mystics games. CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) will also present national coverage of five Mystics games on a non-exclusive basis.
MSN will stream games above its regular paywall, ensuring all fans have access to Mystics games. MSN is the mid-Atlantic region’s top destination for exclusive fan experiences and original sports content across desktop, tablet, mobile and OTT streaming devices. MSN will also give fans behind-the-scenes exclusive programming such as “Run It Back,” a documentary which chronicled the Mystics’ record-setting season and culminated in their first-ever WNBA Championship.
MSN subscribers have access to live Washington Mystics, Capital City Go-Go, collegiate, and high school games in addition to 52 weeks of exclusive shows, on-demand access to Capitals and Wizards games aired on NBCSW, and VIP events and ticket opportunities. Fans can visit getmonumental.com for more information.
Returning for their second season together will be play-by-play announcer Meghan McPeak and veteran host and analyst, Christy Winters Scott.
This season, the Mystics rolled out a new fan experience called My‘Stics Insiders a free membership that delivers exclusive content and access to the team directly to fan inboxes. Insiders receive behind-the-scenes access to player and game-day content, exclusive discounts and promotions, a discount at the online Mystics Team Store, as well as a 90-day subscription pass to the MSN.
