The 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game, already announced as a sellout at Footprint Center in Phoenix, home of the three-time WNBA champion Phoenix Mercury, will showcase the WNBA’s biggest and brightest stars under one roof on Saturday, July 20. ABC will broadcast the game at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.

The league’s 20th All-Star Game event will feature the WNBA’s top talent squaring off against one another in a clash between the All-Stars from the USA Basketball Women’s National Team and the WNBA All-Stars voted-in as part of a combination of fan, player, media, and coach voting.

Wilson, the current WNBA leader in scoring (27.9 ppg) and rebounding (11.3 rpg) this season, leads all players with 217,773 votes. Clark, who ranks 16th in the league in scoring (16.3 ppg) and third in assists (6.2 apg) and was named the Kia WNBA Rookie of the Month for May, is second with 216,427 votes.

Wilson and Clark are followed in the fan voting by 2023 Kia WNBA Rookie of the Year and 2023 WNBA All-Star Aliyah Boston of the Fever (171,864), two-time Kia WNBA MVP and five-time WNBA All-Star Breanna Stewart of the New York Liberty (151,984), and three-time All-Star, 2021 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game MVP and the WNBA’s current No. 2 scorer Arike Ogunbowale of the Dallas Wings (130,838).

Rounding out the top 10 vote-getters are two-time All-WNBA Second Team selection and two-time WNBA All-Star Sabrina Ionescu of the Liberty (118,949); 2024 No. 7 draft pick and the WNBA’s current third-leading rebounder Angel Reese of the Chicago Sky (118,490); two-time WNBA All-Star, 2022 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game MVP and the WNBA’s current No. 9 scorer Kelsey Plum of the Aces (117,217); three-time WNBA All-Star and the WNBA’s current No. 4 scorer and rebounder Napheesa Collier of the Minnesota Lynx (103,550); and two-time WNBA All-Star and two-time Kia WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year Dearica Hamby of the Los Angeles Sparks (97,094).

The selection of the All-Stars is being conducted through a combination of voting by fans (50 percent of the vote), current WNBA players (25 percent) and a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters (25 percent).

After the initial voting period, complete with input from these three groups, the top 10 vote-getters will automatically be named to participate in the 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game. Any top 10 vote-getter who has not already been named to the USA Women’s National Team 5-on-5 roster will automatically be assigned to Team WNBA.

The names of the next 36 highest vote-getters, composed of at least nine guards and 15 frontcourt players, will then be provided to the 12 WNBA head coaches, who will vote to fill the remaining spots for the 12-player Team WNBA roster. Coaches will not be able to vote for their own players.

The 2024 AT&T WNBA All-Star Game rosters will be announced on Tuesday, July 2.

How fans can vote:

  • Desktop and mobile web: To vote online from a desktop or mobile device, fans should visit the official WNBA All-Star Voting page at vote.wnba.com.

Starters for the AT&T WNBA All-Star Game will be determined by the respective head coaches of the USA Basketball Women’s National Team and Team WNBA.

This marks the second time that the AT&T WNBA All-Star Game will feature the USA Basketball vs. Team WNBA format.

Ogunbowale, then a first-time All-Star, was named MVP.
