The Olympics will be held in July from July 23 to August 8 in Tokyo, Japan. To accommodate players who will be in the games, there will be a break for most of July through mid-August.

Washington’s longest stretch of road games will also be during that time, since both of their July games are on the road as well as their first four games in August, starting on Aug. 15 against the Las Vegas Aces. That will mean that the Mystics will not have a home game in about two months between their home match on June 29 against the Connecticut Sun and Aug. 24 against the Los Angeles Sparks.

The Mystics also announced that there will be some game tickets available at ESA, their home venue. Current capacity limits in D.C. proper are at 10 percent, which means that ESA can only hold about 420 people based on its listed capacity of 4,200 seats. However, these limits may change by next month and during the summer, so it’s possible that ESA could hold more people.
