NEW YORK, May 5, 2022 – The WNBA Commissioner’s Cup presented by Coinbase tips off this weekend with five games taking place from May 6-8 during WNBA Tip-Off presented by CarMax. The second annual in-season competition, which features 61 games, will hold its Championship Game at the home venue of the team with the highest winning percentage in Commissioner’s Cup play for the first time after last year’s contest was held at a neutral site. Players will be competing for a prize pool of half a million dollars in the Championship Game, which will once again be streamed on Prime Video.

This year, the Commissioner’s Cup presented by Coinbase will feature a new platform where the league, WNBA teams, and the WNBPA will work together ahead of the 2022 midterm elections to further promote the work the players have focused on by empowering communities through voter registration and voting rights education and advocacy. Led by the efforts of the joint WNBA/WNBPA Social Justice Council, the WNBA family will implement a series of activations and initiatives that will encourage active participation in the civic process, including voter education, registration, and long-term engagement.

The league and teams have collaborated to select organizations in each market that are tied to voting in the communities and for each Commissioner’s Cup regular season game, the WNBA will donate $2,000 to the winning team’s chosen organization and an additional $500 to the losing team’s chosen organization. To spotlight the Championship Game, the league will also donate $10,000 to the winning team’s organization and $5,000 to the organization of the runner-up. The accumulated donation dollars will be presented to each organization at the conclusion of the Commissioner’s Cup presented by Coinbase.

The 2022 Commissioner’s Cup Hub is now live on WNBA.com, complete with a new Commissioner’s Cup Leaderboard that highlights the teams’ charities and donations, as well as an improved sub-navigation menu that the league will utilize on all future hub experiences.
