Dallas Wings host first Draft Day party in Downtown Arlington

Dallas Wings Draft Party

Since the announcement last year that a WNBA franchise was coming to UT Arlington’s College Park Center, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the first opportunity to meet our newest hometown (and downtown) team. That day has finally arrived. On Thursday, April 14, the Dallas Wings will hold their first Draft Day party, and you’re invited!

With characteristic draft day fanfare, attendees will gain access and insight into the team’s build up to its inaugural season. During the evening, fans and guests will see inside the war room as General Manager Greg Bibb and Head Coach Fred Williams select the Wings first, second and third round picks of the WNBA Draft. The Wings currently hold the fifth pick in the first round and the 18th and 30th overall picks.

Other highlights of the night include the unveiling of the 2016 inaugural season home and away uniforms, modeled by all-star guard Skylar Diggins and North Texas’ own Odyssey Sims. Prospective season ticket holders will also get a first-hand look of available seating for the 2016 season.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. Sportscaster Gina Miller will serve as emcee for the event.

Here we go, Wings, here we go!
