NEW YORK - Seattle will host the WNBA All-Star Game next year.
The league announced Wednesday that the game will take place July 22 in the city for the first time.
The league didn't have an All-Star Game last season because of the Olympics. The midseason showcase has been held out west only twice, both times in Phoenix, most recently in 2014.
The 2015 All-Star Game was held in Connecticut. The West beat the East 117-112 as Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx scored a game-record 30 points.
The WNBA will begin its 21st season on May 13 with three games.
